Distante Claridade | George Christian (bandcamp.com)
«Distante Claridade» is a sound radiography about how the my spiritual life in this second year of the pandemic, as well as a confessional exposition of all my indignation, revolt, fury and melancholy, as well as more luminous and peaceful moments.
Only, instead of words, I explore the strings of my acoustic and electric guitars, those of a double bass, or the keys of a piano (recorded in an earlier period in relation to most tracks, but no less pertinent in terms of sound revolt) . It is an album that is not without very intimate political concerns, exposed more clearly in the titles of each piece, which allude to circumstances that aroused in me a desire to move and to sensitize people. (Anyone who is Brazilian will be able to perceive this more clearly.) However, it is an album permeated with a lot of isolation, but also with acoustics. Silences are more heard here.
