Concerto final

ADDAC System modular synth founder & composer André Goncalves (PT) & vocalist Casper Clausen (DK) from Efterklang and Liima have been collaborating on various projects over the past couple of years in Lisbon where they both live. Latest on André’s Musica Eterna I & II. Casper recently released 1982 with his band Liima, their second studio album, including a couple of songs that they wrote in their residency at Jardins Efémeros 2016.

At this years edition of Jardins Efémeros, André and Casper propose to develop and present a brand new collaboration during their artistic residency. At a closer look, the ideia of André and Casper composing together would not be so obvious, taking in account their distinct musical paths, but previous spontaneous collaborations were very surprising for both musicians and tickled their curiosity for what would happen if both would dedicate enough time to create a combined body of work. This residence allows the opportunity to set up and work in a multispeaker environment, creating a sound installation throughout the whole festival. Where visitors are invited to experience the creative process as it happens. The musician’s bodies on display in a continuously open impromptu recording session, leaning towards an idea of transparency and continuity between the creation process and the final presentation.
