SOMBER FUSS EXPERIMENTS - October 2018:
Following the spare time on their main project, between rehearsing and studio sessions they started experimenting,
creating and writing with no aim and without boundaries.
Each began to experiment separately and it wasnít long until the first results appeared.
The first serious contact with electronic equipment was exciting and stress-relieving,
experiencing different recording techniques from what they were accustomed and always producing their own material.
In less than a week they got their separate work together to simply release an album, Somber Fuss Experiments.
The album offers manipulated acoustic guitars, extremely reverberated spaces, tape effects,
drone tibetan cup and other vibrating instruments, modulation and oscillation with synths, odd pianos,
field recording soundscapes, loops and noises.
Ambiental, Minimal, Experimental.
Personnel: Centeio, Duarte Maltez.
PINS - April 2019:
New music arrives with ad odd videoclip.
The experimental single Pins and its b-side Sense Org Audio 512-8 Reshaped are released.
Minimal, Experimental, Noise, Sound Collage.
TROIS ENFANTS AU COSMOS - April 2019:
Time expands and the murmurs become electrier.
Evolving into a three-dimensional space, where three distinct minds throw their own realities and parameters, the murmurs gathered
and formed an element, a boundless dimension with odd frequencies.
This departure experience was recorded live using a 2-track console with the collaboration of LuÌs Santos (FÈ De S·bio, Spy On Mars, St. Louis),
on February 2019.
Kosmische, Noise, Berlin-school.
Personnel: Centeio, Duarte Maltez, LuÌs Santos.
