about

An electronic music minimalist approach reflecting immigration realities and situations of vulnerability in face of bureaucratic mechanisms which block people's life possibilities. ...Roaming explores electronic music minimal and simple beats interpolated with harmonic moments and clean timbres as opposed to the previous work of the artist in her project Brthlns Glnds, more harsh noise and lo-fi oriented.

Far from a statement based only on self- experience, the character Abençoada re-imagines the role of preaching to transmit and question the processes that determine and decide people's 'appropriate character' which will allow them to participate in their privileged 'open, fair and functional' societies.

Samples of news from border rescue operation, from acts credited to 'terrorists' in European cities and reading of the daunting UK residence application form are used in the tracks.

No borders digital album release through Al Revés and in limited edition of 20 sd cards.

Uma abordagem minimalista em música eletrônica refletindo realidades de imigração e situações de vulnerabilidade diante de mecanismos de burocracia que bloqueiam possibilidades de vida das pessoas. ...Roaming explora beats mínimos e simples intercalados com momentos harmônicos e timbres limpos em contraste com outras gravações da artista mais voltadas para harsh noise e produção lo-fi.

Longe de ser um relato apenas baseado em experiência própria, a personagem Abençoada re-imagina o papel da pregação para transmitir e questionar os processos que determinam e enquadram o 'caráter adequado' para que essas pessoas possam participar das sociedades privilegiadas 'abertas, justas e funcionais'.

Áudio de notícias de resgates de indivíduos nas fronteiras, notícias de atentados atribuídos à 'terroristas' em cidades européias e trechos do opressor formulário de requerimento de residência britânico foram usados nas faixas.

Lançamento sem fronteiras de álbum digital pelo Al Revés e em edição limitada de 20 cópias em cartão sd.
