Tiago Sousa

Um Piano Nas Barricadas (LP)

Label: Discrepant

Format: LP

Genre: Experimental

In stock


Since his first release (2006's Crepúsculo), pianist and composer Tiago Sousa has been consistently developing his very own aesthetic; through his relatively large body of work, one can identify an artist on the search for his own expression and identity. Um Piano nas Barricadas ("A Piano in the Barricades") follows three largely successful endeavors, all centered on the piano: Insónia (2009), Walden Pond's Monk (2011), and Samsara (2013). In the time between those works and Um Piano nas Barricadas, Sousa composed the score for the 2013 Portuguese film Bibliografia (included here) and the large-scale theater piece O Coro das Vontades, which premiered in 2012. Um Piano nas Barricadas is another development in this unique body of work by one of the most interesting and intriguing musicians to come out of the burgeoning Portuguese music scene, cementing his place as one of the most distinct voices in piano-driven minimalism. Includes collaborations with Tó Trips, Ricardo Ribeiro, Balthazar Molina, and Rebecca Roth. Mastered and cut by Rashad Becker at Dubplates & Mastering, Berlin. Edition of 500.
