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).

I first came across Marihiko Hara’s work in 2007, with his ‘Cesura’ release on the excellent Italian net-label – Zymogen. It really drew me in more than most other work that was doing the rounds at the same time. It had the sort of organic details and attention to beautiful subtle developments that I had only really heard in offthesky and Nicolas Bernier before (both label mates on Zymogen I should add). It became my soundtrack to that year and an album I returned to almost daily during the winter months. After this I followed Marihiko’s work carefully, from his rather fantastic 2009 ‘Icon’ release on Cotton Goods to his recent ‘Prosa’ collaboration with Tomas Phillips on Tench Records.
