{the} nature {of things} likes to hide cs393









Daniel Barbiero's latest collaboration (with Ernesto Rodrigues and his son Guilherme) is a pair of meditiative ruminations on identity and essence for prepared (and manipulated) double bass, viola, and cello... this music is elusive but stunning in its natural beauty and slow development... Sam Byrd (World of Abstract Dreams)

Recorded over a 3 year period, the trio of Portuguese string improvisers Ernesto Rodrigues on viola and Guilherme Rodrigues on cello met with New Haven, Connecticut double bassist & synth player Daniel Barbiero, developing this detailed, two part lowercase acoustic improvisation with a spacious, patient feeling that interacts with its ambient environment.

New from Creative Sources Records, {the} nature {of things} likes to hide [CS393]. A layered composition by Ernesto Rodrigues (viola) and Guilherme Rodrigues (cello), responding to two foundation tracks by me on prepared bass and granular synthesizer, respectively. As always, Ernesto and Guilherme play sensitively and appositely. (What is it that hides its nature? The double bass, first through preparations and extended technique, and then through granulation.)
