Twice Removed is proud to announce the release of Andrei Machado”s “Catarse”. “Catarse” (translated to English means Catharsis) is Andrei’s third album, but first as a physical product. Andrei Machado is a composer from Brasília, Brazil. Composing ‘Catarse’ was a constant search for the essential. A search for quiet, serenity and peace. A search for less.” Andrei’s previous releases were “Lacuna” (2008) and “Étant” (2009) and both came out on the Brazilian Sinewave net label. His influences are neo-classical music and minimalist artists like Peter Broderick, Bosques De Mi Mente, Max Michta, Goldmund and Michael Andrews.
“With a soft touch and a mix of elegancy, Andrei Machado blends beautiful soundscapes with heartbreaking melodies, giving you, at the same time, the feeling of freedom and anxiety. And it’s definitely something a human being should experience.” (The Siren Sound).

Coruscates consists of four long-form tracks, each tipping past the ten-minute mark.
An edition of 100, CD and cover packaged in a translucent envelope.
This 44 minute piece may structurally resemble a classical composition – divided as it is into several interlocking stanzas – but it’s difficult to place it comfortably within the realm of modern music. If anything, ‘The Rest….’ evokes the otherwordly, fantastical obsessions of the Victorians (Conan Doyle, Lear, Grandville, Wellcome, etc) through means of meticulously manipulated instrumentation, samples and voice.Plinth, of course, is no stranger to Victoriana.

Fla’s finest, The Jacuzzi Boys, and UK ’90s cult band Disco Inferno; fiction by Stacey Levine; photographs by Ted Barron and Gracie Remington; art by Saul Chernick, Pavel Tchelitchew, Cassie Ramone, Ilyas Ahmed.
