about

DEFORMED METAPHOR OF CONVENTIONS DRIVEN INTO
AN ASSORTED INDUSTRIAL AND URBAN DANCE

These songs are full of creativity and sensibility: creativity for they were produced with very little material resources and sensibility since they were written in a context of skepticism and despair.
Tainted jazz, or maybe blues. A little bit of guitar noise, or maybe from a blender. Choruses that make us snap our fingers, or perhaps voices full of feeling. This music sounds like a patchwork. The quest for different sounds in everyday objects was pushed to its highest expression by replacing all the acoustic percussion instruments by found scraps of metal, junk, plastic, cardboard or wood pieces.
Madrid´s growing interest in instrumental music lead him to continue writing songs populated by long voiceless passages where the instruments were merged to create new textures that moved away from the simplicity of the duet´s first two albums. The fact that “Silence” was recorded using multitrack software techniques made it possible to increase the number of sounds and the quantity of parts each song had. The aim of this kind of experimentation was to provide richer tones to his pop songs.
By that time Madrid had started to listen carefully to the works of Barry Adamson and The Divine Comedy, artists that give a different light over pop music; this awakened on him enough confidence to admit that a song could have all the necessary parts to captivate grand public tastes without jeopardizing quality or new expression forms.

about

Gustavo Madrid Buenos Aires, Argentina

On his lyrics he doesn´t want to tell stories; he leaves that to a short story or to a novel.. For his songs, he prefers sentences that act like lashes, images, ideas; that are musical, without a complete or obvious sense and, if it´s possible, the ones that can awaken questions to be left unanswered. ... more
