VÍTOR RUA & THE METAPHYSICAL ANGELS
When Better Isn't Quite Good Enough
2CD ReR Megacorp -








"Sequência do celebrado “Do Androids Dream Of Electric Guitars?”. Mesmo conceito de disco duplo em que Vítor Rua toca sozinho, no primeiro, e com Hernâni Faustino, Luís San Payo, Manuel Guimarães, Nuno Reis e Paulo Galão, no segundo. “When Better…” é a segunda parte de um tríptico anunciado por Rua, praticando o que ele designa como “meta-improvisação” que resulta, de facto, em composições. Aceitando a origem da improvisação moderna nas correntes geradas pela chamada música contemporânea e pelo free jazz, Vítor Rua mostra uma vez mais como parece fácil abordar géneros diferentes, controlando a mão livre para que seja possível estruturar o acaso. Ainda assim, sobre a ideia de estruturação, ele acaba por colocar alguma responsabilidade em Deus: “Probably Composed By God”, a quinta faixa em cada um dos CDs, parece admitir o que muitos músicos reconhecem sem problema. Certos impulsos criativos surgem de além, de algures, de fora, e passam pelo músico. A riqueza dos timbres nas várias guitarras utilizadas por Rua gera suficiente variedade, e essa variedade é, digamos assim, apanhada em movimento pelos instrumentos adicionais que se juntam no segundo CD. Jazz sem o ser." (FLUR)

Novo CD de Vítor Rua & The Metaphysical Angels "Do androids dream of electric guitars?", editado pela Clean Feed

Vítor Rua and The Metaphysical Angels
“Do Androids Dream of Electric Guitars?"


Vítor Rua (b. 1961) began his career in the late seventies with a series of interventions that changed the face of Portuguese pop/rock.
In 1982, formed with Jorge Lima Barreto the duo Telectu.
In 1987, in an act of autodidactic determination, he devoted himself to the study of contemporary musical notation.
His work is characterised by a variegated, embryonic post-modernism and an empiricist rejection of cultural confines, and reflects a transition from structured improvisation to strict composition.
The multiple intention of his work is therefore an aesthetic and kaleidoscopic propaedeutic about the situationism of post-modern music - a proposition for a new musical subjectivism.
In the course of his work as an improviser, he has played with leading figures in the world of improvisation (Jorge Lima Barreto, Chris Cutler, Elliott Sharp, Jac Berrocal, Carlos Zíngaro, Jean Sarbib, Evan Parker, Paul Lytton, Eddie Prévost, Louis Sclavis, Sunny Murray, Ikue Mori, Paul Rutherford, Giancarlo Schiaffini, Barry Altschul, Gerry Hemingway and Daniel Kientzy).
His music has been played by around the world by virtuosos interpreters like Daniel Kientzy, John Tilbury, Giancarlo Schiaffini, Ensemble QTR (Peter Bowman and Kathryn Bennetts), Edwin Prevóst, Frank Abbinanti, OrchestrUtopica, Remix Ensemble, Peter Rundle, Bernini Quartet, etc. He also work for Dance, Theatre, Film, Video, Poetry, Performance.
He is an ethnomusicologist and the primordial interest of his investigation is “Sound”, that is the theme of is P.H.D..
