Black Bombaim approached this creation with the mindset of pushing the boundaries of their musicianship by working with three different electronic composers in three unique recording settings: an old workers auditorium, a huge empty space in the postal office building and in a reverberation room on the university of engineering. Working with Jonathan Saldanha, Luís Fernandes, Pedro Augusto helped Black Bombaim break free of the constraints of a band in a recording studio as each new recording environment and composer brought new textures and ambiance to the music created. It really is rather special to hear. “This is an amazing album of collaborations that I am sure has taken the participants outside of their respective comfort zones to produce a set that is innovative and explorative. You really will need to hear it all to fully appreciate its strength and breadth because it is outside those zones of familiarity where true expression can flourish… and flourish it certainly does here.” ~Psych Insight. This album was made possible through the Criatório arts fund, an initiative by the Porto City Hall destined to support the contemporary artistic creation.
Co-release by Lovers & Lollypops (Portugal) and Cardinal Fuzz (UK).
