(Rudimentol)

Another interesting release by Miguel Cabral, this particular one is centred around a biscuit metal box fitted with a neck and two strings, resulting in a sort of amplified primordial banjo. Through his studio effects Miguel shows a variety of approaches to this strange instrument: detuning up to the lowest range, arpeggio, pizzicato, radical transformation of sound to the point of total non-entity. Cabral works his personal way to improvising and composing in a record not easy to define; I detect a basic passion in this man’s vision that’s much more appreciable in these times of undeserved credits to hollow last-hour participants.
