This Friday 06 November, Para a frente, my debut EP with Nonclassical is released!
Interweaving evocative piano lines with whimsical toy piano and pulsing electronics, the EP celebrates Decoté’s close collaborations with emerging composers. Taking its name from Yfat Soul Zisso‘s playful fragment for toy piano, Para a frente includes works by composers Michael Taplin, Angela E Slater, Omar Peracha and Max Gibson. (Nonclassical)
Recordings are from a concert at The Holywell Music Room in Oxford last year and from a studio session at Studio Sinal Music in Brasília this year, with additional mixing by Gabriel Prokofiev.
I am really thrilled to share this amazing music which means so much to me, and through this awesome label!
Digital album available through Bandcamp.
Order your copy, enjoy, and let me know your thoughts!
Very special thanks to Bruno Guastalla for the live recordings and image of the album cover, Antonio Martins Neto for the promotional photos, and Xenia Pestova Bennett for the key encouragement, always! 💙
