EU7A6804 (1)A facção mais matematizada e polida do post-rock tem nos And So I Watch You From Afar o seu mais alto estandarte. Menos focados na contemplação melancólica do que os seus pares de género, e mais na libertação de energia, na imprevisibilidade rítmica e na destreza técnica, o quarteto irlandês tem vindo, desde a estreia homónima em 2009 e até ao mais recente disco Heirs, lançado em 2015, a afirmar-se como um nome impossível de contornar no panorama da música instrumental. Depois de dois concertos esgotados em 2015, os And So I Watch You From Afar voltam ao Hard Club e ao Musicbox, nos dias 29 e 30 de Outubro, para apresentar o novo disco The Endless Shimmering.

The most mathematical and polished fashion of post-rock has in And So I Watch You From Afar its most renowned name. Less focused on melancholic contemplation, and more on energetic release, rhythmic unpredictability and technical dexterity than their genre counterparts, the Irish quartet has been asserting themselves as a key entity in the panorama of instrumental music. After two sold out shows in 2015, And So I Watch You From Afar return to Hard Club and Musicbox on October 29th and 30th to present the new LP The Endless Shimmering.

Paisiel
Paisiel é o enigmático nome do projecto do baterista, percussionista e escultor sonoro João Pais Filipe e o do saxofonista alemão Julius Gabriel. Alicerçada numa exploração individual do som e das possibilidades expressivas dos instrumentos, a música deste duo corresponde a um impulso de sistematização de referências sem correspondências nem afinidades óbvias – melodias texturadas e abstractas propulsadas por uma percussão simultaneamente mecânica e existencial que se metamorfoseiam num transe cinético. Músicos heterodoxos e digressivos, movendo-se livremente entre a música experimental, o jazz, o rock e restantes declinações indecifráveis de novas categorias musicais, João Pais Filpe e Julius Gabriel criam música radiográfica que habita algures numa zona intermédia entre a recepção e a emissão de sinal, como uma central telefónica do cosmos.

Paisiel is the enigmatic name given to this project consisting of the drummer, percussionist and sonic sculptor João Pais Filipe and the German saxophonist Julius Gabriel. Based on an individual exploration of the sound and on the expressive possibilities of their instruments, the duo’s music seeks to join and systematize their influences, albeit without any obvious correspondences or affinities – resulting in textured and abstract melodies propelled by a mechanical and existential percussion that morphs into a kinetic trance. Heterodox and digressive musicians, moving freely between experimental music, jazz, rock and other new musical categories, João Pais Filipe and Julius Gabriel create radiographic music that inhabits somewhere between the reception and the emission of signal, like a cosmic telephone exchange.

As a first taster of what to expect from the new album, they’ve shared the epic ‘A Slow Unfolding Of Wings’. Combining a few slower, more contemplative yet complex melodies alongside passages of pure, blistering riffs and thunderous percussion, it shows off the raw energy that they aimed to instil into the whole of ‘The Endless Shimmering’.

Ask anyone who’s witnessed And So I Watch You From Afar in the live arena and they’ll surely attest – the Irish four-piece are gladiators.

Heirs demonstrates a band that can be articulate without speaking in words, and And So I Watch You from Afar are a smart, inventive group who continue to progress with each visit to the recording studio.
All Music Guide

Like the sonic equivalent of a Rorschach test, each track is riddled with vast soundscapes begging to be explored and made sense of.

A compelling experience from top to bottom.
