Boas notícias: Space (Staubgold) e Space Solo 1 (Quecksilber), de Rafael Toral, nomeados para os prémios Quartz 4 (Electronic Music Awards) deste ano, na categoria QWARTZ EXPERIMENTAL/RECHERCHE. Parabéns, Rafael! Space is the Place... Entretanto, a 17 de Novembro próximo, Rafael Toral & Roger Turner ao vivo, [no.signal], Londres.
Formerly known for his work with guitar and electronics, Rafael Toral terminated in 2003 that line of works to completely renew his approach to music: he now researches performance possibilities in electronic music.His long-term "Space Program" is a quest for a discipline to structure musical discourse in "post-free jazz electronic music", using experimental, custom-built or modified instruments. Approaching jazz from an alien perspective, as a system of individual decision-making from the viewpoint of free spectrum electronics, his conception is concerned with gestural performance, instruments with a simple and clear sonic identity, and articulation of silence and sound.In 2006 he released "Space", and more recently "Space Solo 1" (the Space Program's release series). This will be the first UK performance of Space and the collaboration with Roger Turner is a World premiere put together by [no.signal]
