BETWEEN GIANT $HOULDERS

JOVEMDEU$ | THURSDAY, 25AUG22 | BERLIN, GERMANY

Debut Marcioz album with 10 tracks composed between 2020-2022. Doing a deep dive into a sonic concept built and developed based on thoughts, on principles, on readings and reality. The album was composed in it's majority in Curitiba and finalized in Berlin. Fully composed, performed, mixed and mastered by Marcio with special participation of Rompiste Mis Flores and Ivana Bandalo.

To forcefully recontextualize experimental and contemporary music // to negate the sonic description of innovation created by global north in the 21st century // to negate the fictional history of development in experimental music // to reconsider counterpoint as a colonial fragment // to reconsider tonal harmony as a colonial fragment // to reconsider the clavichord and baroque music as a colonial fragment // to consider the charango as a virtual extended technique instrument // to rethink the clavichord within a new possiblity for counterpoint // to acknologde the “herofication” of european musical landmarks as a form of ideology // to propose and practice an open multiple form view for new music // to negate a local practice and dialogue as a universal speech // to practice and recenter global south as the matter of the conversation // to ignore their idols // to profit from the gringo’s system // to buy my grandma a house // pela paz do corpo mestiço pardo brasileiro // to ocupy their spaces // pela malandragem // “europe is indefensible” // “demorou, eu quero é mais, eu quero até sua alma” // pelo lixo ocidental // eu nasci pobre mas nao nasci otario // good luck getting me out of your deutsche land

DE/COLONIAL WRITING$

JOVEMDEU$ | THURSDAY,16JUL20  | CURITIBA, BRASIL

3 track EP released on Marcioz label, jovemdeu$. DE/COLONIAL WRITING$ takes influences from samba, flamenco, trap and industrial music to develop a new possibility for the brazilian music pallete. Growing up in Curitiba, Marcioz was immersed in samba carnival bands since a kid, playing repinique, surdo and other typical instruments present in afrobrazilian music. That same origin makes key difference to define DE/COLONIAL WRITING$ as a sound wishing to imagine electronic music from the colonial period in Brazil. The project doesn't try to solve any of the worlds issues, simply accepting its uncapabilities, it rather wants to cause thought, imagination and creativity from the listener.
Coverart from Osório Belêm.
