Gimnásio Clube de Faro (Meeting Point Faro) / Sat 26 OCT 23h00 CONCERT / 60' / M6 / Free Admission
Sérgio Pelágio began developing the possibilities of playing solo with Histórias Magnéticas: these are small compositions he made for guitar, inspired in short stories, to be played with narration but that can also be listen to independently. In this case, Pelágio wanted to expand into other routes some of these previous ideas and others, going after an orchestral aspect of guitar, a sound filled with several voices.
At a certain point, jazz became his home and, although it is almost always there things start for the musician – a certain organization of possibilities often arrives to unknown results that he considers must happen because he likes to take chances, to mix, and because a thousand things that influence him, he didn’t know them until then.
When he plays alone, he gets ready to get along with and to transform on stage whatever it is happening, in a balance between what’s internalized – jazz, improv, music he has made for dance and cinema – and everything else.
