O'culto da Ajuda | Lisboa
Ana R. Albino and Phillipe Trovão
ROOM # 315 is a space of communication in a vague time that persists in the present and that originates in the "Lynch" universe, it is to exist in several sound universes simultaneously, it is to find in sound and silence new meanings at every moment, it is chaos and lucidity, it is reality and imagination, it is the search for truth that is renewed every moment.
An electric guitar with effects and a saxophone have dialogues and monologues from situations now taken from the real world [soundscaping] and from an imaginary world [electronics].
Composition, improvisation and electronic control are the means through which the door of the ROOM# 315 is opened.
