Label: Ideal Recordings
*300 copies limited edition* Brazilian composer, musician and sound artist Carla Boregas debut LP for Ideal is called "Pena ao Mar". Maybe a deeply personal meditation on the artist's love for the ocean. Carefully composed electronic music that is warm, sometimes rough, but always capturing. First solo one since a limited 2016 cassette. Its pressed onto deep blue semi transparent vinyl at Grama in Porto in 300 copies. The cover is designed by our dear friend Philip Marshall, and it is no doubt a strong, massive debut.
These songs were made using analogue and digital synthesizers, effects, Wurlitzer electric piano, field recordings, gong, duduk flute and processed cactus sounds. Composed, recorded and mixed by Carla Boregas. Pena ao Mar was conceived as part of the Nel Frattempo Residency.
Carla Boregas (b.1984, Brazil) is an artist working with medium of sound.
Interested in encounters and situations that can occur through sonic practices, she explores sound as a language and a tool through the manipulation of analog and digital synthesizers, electric bass, field recording and acoustic sounds. Focused on repetition, texture and sensoriality, Carla creates immersive atmospheres and also expansive soundscapes, both in her solo work or in collaboration with other artists.
