"Let say it clearly, Filipe is one of our favourite guitar player. We love his very personal approach of building his music. Building is the right word here, as his music is so intense that it can be compared to sculpture: rough, soft, massive, ethereal, delicate. He oversteps the contemplative and cinematographic comparison that is regularly used for instrumental music. With one guitar, he uses the sound to create matter and shape it with melodies. And silence. The moments he plays are equally important as the moments he doesn't. Perfectly balanced between fragility and assertion, Filipe's music can not lie, but is life. Sede e Morte pays tribute to great guitar players, with reinterpretation of songs by John Fahey, Peter Green and Jose Afonso. The artwork itself is a painting made by Filipe based on an image of the Heidelberg Dance of Death book (1448) and almost a perfect imitation of John Fahey's "Dance of Death" - which uses an image from the same book."
