Portuguese composer Afonso Ferreira a.k.a. FARWARMTH is a keen collaborator, as part of the duos HRNS, PURGA and the collective 00:NEKYIA. His debut album for Planet Mu is perhaps his most ambitious collaborative work yet. Built up over four years, its sources are recordings of friends and family in improvised sessions with cello, flute and accordion with Afonso on keyboards from the time he was on an artists residency in 2018.
Objects Limited are proud to sign pioneering electroacoustic composer Kaffe Matthews' latest album 'Foreigner'. Kaffe has a colourful background including a degree in Zoology, her architectural compositions working in the Galapagos with sharks to more recent work with sonic bikes and The Bicrophonic Research Institute. Her live performances and interaction with the listener are central to her work as documented in numerous solo and collaborative albums on her own label Annette Works since the nineties.
On 'ATØ' Ziúr has developed a sophisticated toolbox of sounds from which this album is produced. Its rush of clear electronic beeps and tones, crunchy drums and cold metallic stabs share space alongside bell tones and marimba, dhol drums, r&b melodies and rich strings, as if the gritty distortion of ‘U Feel Anything?’ has given way to a bloom of colour.
