Sem Nostalgia (New LP)Lucas Santtana
Label: Mais Um
On ‘Sem Nostalgia’ Lucas Santtana has re-imagined the sonic possibilities of acoustic guitars and voices to create a modern electro-acoustic masterpiece using only these instruments. Using samplers, pedals, filters and non-conventional recording techniques, Santtana created a haunting, disorientating and forward thinking work: “It was a great challenge to start an album knowing it would have limited sound sources” he opines, “yet I knew I could use this to the music’s advantage. I was also inspired by how Miles Davis defined notes and chromatic scale limits for his musicians on a ‘Kind of Blue’ and used this economy to make the music more intense”.
