thisquietarmy – Live in Sao Paulo (DVD)
This is the complete thisquietarmy live performance that took place at Centro Cultural Sao Paulo in Brazil on June 23rd, 2013. The concert marked the end of the TQA Brazilian tour where he performed 14 shows through May & June 2013 to promote the split LP with Sao Paulo-based band Labirinto released on Dissenso Recordings.
For this “homecoming” Brazilian gig, thisquietarmy performs a special encore with two members from Labirinto: Muriel Curi on drums/electronics & Ricardo Pereira on bass.
The DVD compiles and crossovers video footage by Claud Peer & Rodrigo Florentino with thisquietarmy’s live visuals and the live soundboard audio recording from CCSP. The whole thing was entirely edited & mastered by Eric Quach back at TQA.HQ in Montreal, Canada.
The DVD includes 4 live photographs of the performance by Daniel Moura, and the package was designed, printed, hand-cut and assembled by Eric Quach/TQA Records. The DVDs are silver/black DVD-Rs, burnt as NTSC and should work on all new DVD players and DVD-roms.
Each issue has around 168 pages and includes high-quality colour reproductions of the artists’ work.
Issue 26 looks at questions of pedagogy, such as gallery education, Godard’s didacticism, Lina Bo Bardi’s exhibition displays, and through the artists Catherine Sullivan, Isidoro Valcárcel Medina and Group Material. Accompanying texts look at Hans Eijkelboom, theorisations of the event and the current Moscow art scene.
Anthropological audiophiles feared that all forms of smouldered geometric sound magic had died away when Europeans reached far in to the desert wilderness of western America. Although this sand based kahuna was never officially outlawed, the decline of native culture saw many forms of sonic sorcery die out as the acoustic conjurers were unable to pass on their wisdom to new aural apprentices.
A new collaborative project from Jefre Cantu-Ledesma and William Trevor Montgomery. Both musicians played together in Tarantel and Moholy-Nagy. Cantu-Ledesma also runs the superb Root Strata label, releasing solo material under his own name (including a recent LP on Type), and also plays in The Alps. Montgomery also releases music under Lazarus, The Drift and Believer.
This project was originally conceived and composed as a soundtrack to an unreleased western. The 14 tracks on this record are beautifully delicate, textured, sparse pieces ranging from slow acoustic reflective moments, to fully electric strumming, they capture the feel a western perfectly. It’s a shame the film never made it out, because judging by the music it would’ve been a beautiful spectacle.
The project was was recorded by Jefre Cantu-Ledesma and William Trevor Montgomery and mixed at studio Lamantia, the record was mastered by Greg Davis. The image on the cover is a still from a Paul Clipson film, whose films have previously featured the music of Jefre, Barn Owl, Tarantel, Gregg Kowalsky and Metal Rouge. Sleeve layout by Jefre. Pressed on 140 gram black virgin vinyl. Limited to 500 copies
