Started when the first pandemic confinement hit, this is content that celebrates my past and informs a fresh vision forward. I have a fascination for experimental and challenging music and use it to inspire my creativity and many aspects of my daily drifts, so music does take center stage here. Glad if it resonates with you in some way and you discover something new here, in which case you should explore more and support the artists. Curated by Jorge Sampaio.

Delmer Darion - Notes

Delmer Darion

"Electronic duo Delmer Darion have spent five years putting together their debut album, Morning Pageants. It's a hyper-literary account of the devil's death, detailed and engrossing. The concept was inspired by a line from Wallace Stevens's poem "Esthétique du Mal." Preferring to work from samples, which can be a nightmare to clear before a release, they instead recorded two albums' worth of material that they could then cut and mutate." The Fader
I just happen to hear a line from onetime MTV host Kurt Loder pondering the virtues of sampling in popular culture to underscore the action: “is it art or is it stealing?”. It was 1989.

Infidel Castro Notes

Infidel? Castro!

COLIN MARSTON
The works of hyperactive wunderkind musician and producer Colin Marston (of Dysrhythmia fame then, of the amazing Krallice lately) led me to discover one of his many projects exploring the limitless possibilities of noise: Infidel?/Castro!. Listening to (and enjoying) the music of I?C! takes preparation, even 15 years after its release. Sprawling structures combine metal elements with ambient soundscapes, adding near-indigestible digital treatment, sounding suspiciously like a broken cd player. Indeed when I bought this it was in the form of 2 cd's. There's a lot to feast on here in a combination of ambient (early tracks) and a more nervous atmosphere (later). I am fine with having to skip the harsher bits but this is one of those albums I am still considering cutting and stitching all the favorite bits in Audacity...
