Montanhas Azuis (Norberto Lobo, Marco Franco, Bruno Pernadas) + Pedro Maia


“In a project that came into being in a now forgotten past, Norberto Lobo and Marco Franco have built their own mountains so that they can fly over them with spontaneous music, made with two open hearts and a whole host of synthesisers. But in this symbolic representation of mountains, three ridges are needed for us to be able to easily recognise them: Bruno Pernadas is therefore the element that was missing for a project that continues the same quest for the unknown in the music of each of them. The project functions as a kind of science fiction laboratory, with eager workers dressed in impeccable uniforms and surrounded by cables connecting them to their many instruments, manipulating and experimenting with unexpected objects. When they decide to show what they can do, they organise themselves on stage into a bluish triangular shape and play each other’s music, showing us environmental songs, interludes with healing powers, cosmic journeys, folk with jazz frills, and low-resolution electronic landscapes, among other surprising ideas that may arise in the meantime. Or ideas with images, for there is also Pedro Maia involved in all of this, the cinematic guide to this adventurous trip.”
