After listening to a lot of electronica recently the soundworld of Pangeia Instrumentos came as a welcome change, like stumbling upon an unexpected park in the centre of a noisy city. The acoustic resonances, the variety of attack and decay, the apparent guilelessness enchant from the first moment. Find out more about our use of this data, and also our policy on profanity.
Victor Gama – Pangeia Instrumentos. An anomaly, this, from Rephlex, the Aphex Twin’s home for fiendish abstract electronica. Gama is a Portuguese-Angolan musician whose interest in traditional African music has led him to build updated versions of ancient instruments. And these are what he plays on Pangeia Instrumentos?all-acoustic devices that also function as sculptures and political tools; one is a kind of thumb-piano made from a symbolically recycled Angolan soldier’s helmet.
