デザイナーでもある事からBiosphere、Fennesz、BJNilsen、Rafael Toral、Philip Jeck等のパッケージ写真なども手掛け、Ash International、TouchRadio、The Tapewormなどからも変名/別ユニットでの音源をリリースしているHeitor Alvelosが自身の名前でリリースした初のフルレングス。完全にTouch系の音楽家ですがそこは関係無しに、本作、か細い持続音、ラジオコラージュ、虫の声など、徹底的に作り込んだ静謐な音イメージの統一がメチャクチャ素晴らしい一枚。聞こえるか聞こえないかの気配っぽい領域など全てが最高。大推薦。









Faith is the first full-length sound release by media researcher and curator Heitor Alvelos under his own name. Heitor Alvelos has been a long-time on/off collaborator of Touch, having on occasion provided photography and stage visuals for Biosphere, Fennesz, BJNilsen, Rafael Toral and Philip Jeck, as well as releasing sound pieces under the aliases Autodigest, Antifluffy and Before Surgery, on Ash International, TouchRadio and The Tapeworm.

“The essence of the present piece is autobiographical: therefore the use of my own name”, the author clarifies. “And yet it aims at being resonant to others”: in this context, resonance may be regarded as both semantic and visceral, as the sound frequencies on Faith are often of the kind that “rearrange one’s organs”, to quote the recently departed Bernadette Martou. A necessity in order to carry the gravitas inherent to the subject, a confessional confrontation with the zeitgeist.

All sources have been gathered, recorded and produced throughout five decades, all the way back to a recording by Francisco Alvelos in 1972 that closes the release. Elsewhere, sounds have been processed to various degrees, the bookends retaining their original contexts, others mutating into deep abstraction. Overall, they flow as one single composition, evocative and foreboding in equal measures.
