Celebrate a special New Year’s Eve at this party in Praça do Infante, this time to the sound of The Gift. After the concert, the party continues, this time with DJ Lighthouse. The musical shows and fireworks are more than enough reasons to share these unforgettable memories with us in a night full of magic and fun. Enter 2023 with us!
The search for sound. We reach a certain point in life when the search for sounds to make records starts to be unproductive. Nothing fills us. Nothing tells us… A new sound is a blank slate. It is from there that everything is designed.
From the stimuli we least expect come answers. Like the film “La Grande Belleza” by Paolo Sorrentino, which begins with a choir of nine voices, which feed the daily lives of so many lives. As if the voices lead the soundtrack of what we do, of what we are… And if the root of that sound that we seek were the human being… The voice. The voices.
The blank sheet found. A choir on one side, or at the core of the sheet… The multiple voices give the form, the content, the message. The other voice, Sonia’s above all. Portuguese lyrics. The voices that make melody, harmony and rhythm and that say words, carry and elevate the meaning of each sentence…
Life is made of contrasts, of right and wrong things, of good and bad times, of days and nights… And after the velvet of the human part, the contrast… The roughness of electronics. Raw, rude, cruel.
Coral is born from this meeting. From this blank page that has always been the search for sound. The disc came out without warning. It came out to us. We weren’t waiting. Today’s musicians have to follow their instincts, but above all respect their impulses. Nothing is organized with time. Things come out. Either they take advantage or they don’t. The tour of this Coral is one of those moments. Unique, that come out of the inside without warning… Our impulse is to put on the right concerts, in the right places. It will be mainly out of respect for what is not foreseen, our impulses. Either use it or not. Behind the curtain of every theater and auditorium, a choir that fills the stage, and Gift. Some clinging to letters, others clinging to the rude electronics laboratory. Live choir is above all a celebration. Of life. From impulse. Of still being here following what is unseen, our instinct.
