"The second release by the M=minimal label is the rediscovery of a musical jewel. The first limited edition of this extraordinary album was released in 1984 in Brazil. In the '80s in the field of minimal music, nothing similar to it was released and it was long overdue to make this record accessible again. Imagine the scene: Caetano Veloso and Jim O'Rourke collaborating on Brazilian-flecked minimal pieces. The result might sound like this recording. Chico Mello is a Brazilian composer who studied with Dieter Schnebel and Witold Szalonek and who has lived and worked in Berlin for 20 years. His works have been played at the most important festivals of contemporary/new music (Donaueschingen Music Festival, Musica Viva München, Inventionen Berlin, Maerz Musik, International de Musique Electroacoustique de Bourges, France, Festival Música Nova São Paulo, Bienal de Música Contemporânea Rio de Janeiro, etc.). Mello has also worked with colleagues such as Arnold Dreyblatt, Daniel Ott, and Burkhard Schlotthauer's Wandelweiser ensemble. Currently, he is working with Nicholas Bussmann (Kapital Band I/Ich Schwitze Nie) on a Brazilian song cycle. This album has been mastered at ~scape mastering studio, Berlin." (label info) repressed
