A very familiar journey. Two locations, Lisbon and Seixal. A river in between. A ferry crossing. A journey between north and south of the greater city of Lisbon in Portugal. These are the premises that envelope the project.
The project results from a detailed exploration of timbres and rhythms using various field recording techniques. The result takes the listener on a journey between metal, water, and time.
This edition also includes two collaborations between Matilde and Tone Burst. A silk print printed by Galdéria in Caldas da Rainha (Portugal), and a short audio/visual element—Follow the water. The silk print is a graphic exploration of the project’s useful constraints, while the audio/visual element is a conversation between Matilde, Phil and Barry using recordings of water from the various locations where each one of us was based: Lisbon, Munich and Belfast.
A meeting of folk and electronics, the concrete and the temporary, the old and the new. Celebrating the worlds alongside our own, and the tales lost unless spoken. Ruins and nature hold the lore of the land, and these can be formed in sound, past and present. Circular.
