Gonçalo F. Cardoso | "Impressões de Outra Ilha (Borneo)" | Discrepant | 2022

El artista sonoro portugués  al frente del sello Discrepant (también de los subsellos Souk, Sucata Tapes y Farsa Discos), retorna con la serie Island Impression. Después de su disco dedicado a grabar la vida y los sonidos en la isla principal de Zanzíbar, Unguja, publicado a través de Edições CN en 2018, Cardoso esta vez entrega un nuevo álbum para la serie. Se trata de "Impressões de Outra Ilha (Borneo)", en donde realizó una grabación de campo en 2016 que incluye la vida salvaje del bosque de Borneo en Malasia. Provisto de un sintetizador alimentado con una batería, grabadoras portátiles y samplers que llevó al trabajo de campo, elaboró allí los distintos registros dando así forma a este álbum. Este viaje musical incluye al propio Cardoso caminando por el bosque y a su alrededor se escucha la naturaleza exuberante, el sonido de los pájaros e insectos. También se registran diálogos de los locales, a una cantante pop, el repiqueteo de la lluvia incesante. Asistimos a un mundo exótico, pletórico de vida que nos introduce a un espacio que nos parece cercano, casi conocido y hasta se siente agradecido por tanta belleza sonora en medio hoy, de un mundo convulsionado y peligroso. 

Cardoso sutilmente entra y sale con líneas ambientales del sintetizador, o bien con flautas sampleadas tocadas por los aborígenes del lugar, creando ángulos armónicos que se funden con el medio ambiente.

The Portuguese sound artist at the head of the Discrepant label (also of the Souk, Sucata Tapes and Farsa Discos sub-labels), returns with the Island Impression series. After his album dedicated to recording life and sounds on the main island of Zanzibar, Unguja, published through Edições CN in 2018, Cardoso this time delivers a new album for the series. It is "Impressões de Outra Ilha (Borneo)", where he made a field recording in 2016 that includes the wildlife of the Borneo forest in Malaysia. Equipped with a synthesizer powered by a battery, portable recorders and samplers

that he took to the field work, he elaborated there the different recordings thus giving shape to this album. This musical journey includes Cardoso himself walking through the forest and all around him you can hear the exuberant nature, the sound of birds and insects. There are also dialogues from the locals, a pop female singer, the incessant rain. We witness an exotic world, full of life that introduces us to a space that seems close to us, almost known and even feels grateful for so much sound beauty in the midst today of a convulsed and dangerous world.

Cardoso subtly weaves in and out with ambient synth lines, or sampled flutes played by local Aborigines, creating harmonic angles that blend with the environment.
