Throughout this year, besides the looper and guitar effects, musician Sérgio Pelágio has been including some more machinery in his setup. Now he uses a computer, pre-recorded samples, some gadgets and a beat box. He says: “For a long time I’d imagined a beat box that could play random variations, and finally a young English inventor has come up with one”.
As someone who has always been interested in less common beats, he now has a much more organic and fun way of experimenting and playing. This is how much of his latest music was developed to accompany imaginary narrations for Edward Snowden’s texts, Emily Dickinson’s poetry or Clarice Lispector’s short stories.
