September 19, 2023 (Los Angeles, CA):
AKP Recordings is proud to announce our next release, Isolationism, from Brazilian-based guitarist and composer Carlos Ferreira out October 27th on digital and limited edition individually numbered cassettes.
The first single “Living A Metaphor (feat. Lucas Protti)” is out now with an accompanying music video from filmmaker Minh Pham.
Carlos Ferreira is an experimental artist whose work explores the relationship between sound, space, time, and memory. Isolationism, his forthcoming album on AKP Recordings, utilizes reverb-drenched guitar tones, piano, clarinet, pipe organ, and atmospheric field recordings to study frequency, resonance, and sound vibration. The results harmonize cinematic aplomb with levity, grief with hope, and an unbearable gravity with the lightness of existing in a moment.
Recorded over two weeks, Isolationism also features contributions from Echo Ho, Lucas Protti, and Manami Kakudo. The contributions are feathered in with such care that it is difficult to discern where they begin and end. While Ferreira’s work has always been concerned with the nature of listening, Isolationism might be his most rewarding invitation to harmonize with the space we inhabit.
Recorded & mixed by Carlos Ferreira at home (Porto Alegre, Brazil) Feb/Mar 2023
Mastered by Andrew Weathers at Wind Tide Studio (Littlefield, TX, USA)
