YANN GOURDON & FILIPE FELIZARDO
LA LANGUE DE L'OPHIOLITE
The duo composed by Yann Gourdon (vielle à roue) and Filipe Felizardo (electric guitar) is the result of a reciprocal invitation from both, which took place seven years ago. In January 2020, Trás-os-Montes Records provided that the two musicians could finally meet and play almost uninterruptedly for three days, proving to each other that their intuitions and hearts were synchronous - converging the density of timbre languages and poetics of their instruments at a point of all returns, expanded by the observation of the geology of Macedo de Cavaleiros and Podence.
Hence, with the 'drones' that result from a careful study of the duration, of a harmonic thermodynamics - because when they touch it, it is like a microtonal maelstrom -, and of the delicious errors that come from indefatigable repetition and persistence, they propose an immanent gesture to where someone you can look and hear as if you were the top of a hill, with a 360º vision and hearing, where the blind spots of the optical and sonic veins are the serpentine vector of ecstatic truth that musicians aim to establish with those who listen.
