Jorge Nuno | Joao Paulo | Signs Of The Silhouette

Signs of the Silhouette it’s a project in which the act of music is answered with reactions to a video imaged projected in the musician body. Therefore the one that plays becomes the visual support of an image interpreted by musical improvisation. The group uses simple, but complex sonorities based in electric guitar and drums. The act becomes a dialogue between a body transmuted lived image perception in loco by a musical, gestual, reactive and spontaneous response. — Jorge Nuno & Joao Paulo Continue reading
