The second offering by Purple Mountain Peal is an obscure unidentified object rolling adrift in an entropic void in search of the zero degree of music. There’s virtually no melody in these tracks and no rhythm, either, for no rhythmelodical coordinates are to be found in the regions the duo explore this time.
Alternately choking in desperation or floating in blissful oblivion, it is very difficult to remember that all these dark sounds are originated by such homely, apparently harmless instruments as acoustic piano, acoustic and electric guitars. A warning, if you like, that even the most ordinary objects or ideas may reveal dark sides one has never thought of.
Free Variety Theatre was founded in early 2013 by Alexander Cutteridge and Daniel Moschopoulos as a vehicle for online collaboration—initially non-realtime distance collaborations with likeminded artists on SoundCloud. We have already established working relationships through attentive offline collaboration with musicians and producers in North and South America, Australia and throughout Europe, and have recently extended our outlook into the realm of tele-musical internet performance.
In parallel to our collaborative efforts, we have, over the last year or so, been developing and refining more conventional modes of improvising (namely playing in the same space and time). “Galactic Anatomy” is FVT’s first collection of recordings featuring the two of us playing alone. We have cautiously defined the genre as “techneurotic jazz”. The main intrigue/challenge from the outset has been to convincingly integrate improvised performance on traditional acoustic instruments (piano, electric guitar, trumpet) with digital electronic devices (laptop, samplers, analogue modelling).
1981 is an argentinian artist from Concepción del Uruguay, Province from Entre Rios, with an early approach to the musical arts as bass player and experimenting with guitars, keys and percussions. Composing pieces and using an old recorder. In 2004 he started to explore electronic based production. Neodimia derives of this period. An instrumental album with lost words. With the names of the themes we can deduce some concepts: isolation, melancholy, ansiety, plenitude, calm, passion. The metaphoric image of a planet with a eternal autumn, where the mind gives wandering steps, making stops in some short emotions and in the far away memories that talk about reality, this is, maybe, the imaginary sugestion for neodimia.
