In this third album – which succeeds the highly acclaimed Miles Away of 2017 -, the guitarist has invested four years of work and presents himself as exploring the sound of different instruments – not only electric and acoustic guitars, but also 12-string or the iconic metallic guitar known as the Duplo – to build a very emotional set of pieces that evoke ideas of strength, struggle and resilience, also navigating through some contrasting notions already mentioned in the title: fire and water, earth and air, primordial elements which here are translated into highly evocative music and in which the deep Portuguese identity is explored – as in “Pulsar da Terra”, for example.
The musician who worked closely with Jean Paul Maunick’s Incognito in England now called Beatriz Nunes, acclaimed jazz singer who was even a member of Madredeus, to add voices to her compositions for the first time. Ensures
Francisco that Beatriz represents his own soul. In this work that the composer himself describes as being more cinematographic and in which he guarantees to have reinvented himself as a composer, the production was shared with Tiago Gomes.
