earnear – “earnear” (2017)

“earnear” – it’s one of the newest experimental jazz release this month. The album was recorded by three jazz masters – João Camões (viola), Rodrigo Pinheiro (piano) and Migual Mira (cello). These three musicians are wonderful improvisers which try out many different playing techniques, expand technical abilities of their instruments, search out for an extraordinary and interesting sound. Their improvisations with many other famous jazz musicians are full of innovative musical decisions, expressive, wild and emotional improvisations. Their music is mostly based on various avant-garde and some of modern jazz styles – bebop, post-bop and etc. Through the years of creative activity the musicians had created marvelous and interesting playing and improvising style. Their improvisations have unique and innovative sound and are full of contrasts.

Album has 8 compositions. All of them differ from each other. The first one “Inprint” is lively and energetic collective improvisation which has some virtuosic and expressive solos in it. The second and third compositions – “Dream Theory” and “Time Leak” – are absolutely different from the first one. These compositions don’t have rhythmical and melodic basic. It;s based on singular sounds, strange timbres and noises. The soft and calm mood of these compositions is effected by high variety of playing techniques and extraordinary timbres, soft harmony and polyphonic form of the compositions. These compositions are played in lyrical, soft and calm mood and have many musical experiments in it. The fourth composition “Theoretical Morning” also is different from the others. It’s very active, based on monotonous and repetitive rhythmic and melodic elements. There’s also is the melodic basement – the melodies are very expressive, active, fast and full of virtuosic elements in it. The musicians also try out many innovative playing techniques in this composition, pay high attention to musical experiments and special sound effects. The “Gomboc”, “Airfoil”, “Stifling Contremps” and the last one composition “Triage” are based on the same elements like the compositions which were played earlier. There are many episodes which is based just on sound experiments and special sound effects. These episodes are gently and organically combined with active, energetic and dramatic solos which are full of different playing techniques and virtuosic elements. The music of this album is interesting, full of contrasts and strange timbres. It’s also emotional, expressive and evocative. Masterful, free and creative improvising of the musicians create original and interesting sound of this album.
