John T. Gast

The long and diverse work of British John T. Gast has been presented through a mutant realism. With a decade of releases in the most varied formats and with the most brilliant collaborations, the producer resembles a shadow that, at the margins, seems to know how to find its place – only to soon deliver exotic objects, susceptible to greater illuminations.

It has been through his label 5 GATE TEMPLE that not only accommodates some of his records, but offers fallow to other artists of similar vision. The understanding that sound and its potentialities achieve a multidimensional reach is the heartbeat that guides this ongoing musical (un)composition. We are not therefore before a watertight musical landscape, but rather a vehicle of fabulous infusion of echoes of UK garage, house in pal plus system and hazy memories of the jungle. Each suggestion is linked by the ambient sense that can be extracted from each one: the rhythmic nervousness, the disintegrated melody and that neonic light that can only be found between the real and the fantastic.

The most recent attention goes to the collaboration with the harpist Serafina Steer. Not being exactly contrasting, it is undoubtedly a unique step in other latitudes. The contemplative nature of Garden of Love/Water Carrier, recently published, is a kind of balm for our greatest anxieties.

This show is entitled No Murmúrio dos Esgotos, and is part of a cycle of presentations that will take place on Tuesdays, in the Novo Negócio space. The first part features Rebeca Csalog (among other references, she has played with national artists such as Conan Osiris or Odete). A beautiful harpist, capable of transporting us further afield. Believe me, it will be special. NA
