mono026 CREMASTER - NORANTA GRAUS A L'ESQUERRA
Ferran Fages and Alfredo Costa Monteiro grabbed my attention many years ago as I was promptly encouraged by Creative Sources boss Ernesto. Both of the guys have a great deal of experience in improvised music and composition of experimental tracks. Apart from his usual means Ferran and Alfredo use different set - objects on guitar and no-input mixer feedback. And yet the consequences of such set-up are amazingly surprising. It is an electroacustic set which gives plenty of boost on noisy genres steering away from the shabby clichees of noise and drone music. On one hand it is the sound, on the other hand these are the skills of the musicians which utilize the motto: less is more. The effect is really amazing.
