Proving once again that he is Lusitanian’s most prolific writer / composer, Primitive Reason founder Guillermo de Llera Blanes introduces us to three brand new world music / experimental projects:
WE CUT HAND
“We Cut Hand” is a World Music Fusion project based mainly on the interaction of the Australian Aboriginal Didjeridu and the Middle-Eastern Saz. These two instruments drive the bulk of the compositions forwards, usually accompanied by Indian, African and Middle-Eastern Percussion. Check out “Mosquito Biting Me”:
THE RAHYDA PROJECTS
“The Rahyda Project” begins with tweaking sounds recorded on smartphones and other portable gadgets. Firstly by working on the initial sounds and beats using apps alone, and then importing them into his digital audio workstation for some final processing, mixing and add-ons. Curious? Hear “Gobiregufu – Mean Streak”:
Last but definitely not least, with “Moksha” Guillermo de Llera intends to create a meditative, Indian influenced collection of songs for an album to be entitled ‘Khor Ba’. In Indian religions and Indian philosophy, moksha (Sanskrit: moksha), means emancipation, liberation or release. In soteriological and eschatological sense, it connotes freedom from samsara, the cycle of death and rebirth.
“In this sense the music must reflect the concept in that it is a channel for those exact moments of emancipation, liberation or release” (Guillermo de Llera 2014)
Hear “Harvesters of Sorrow”:
