San Ignacio – Casiotone Rosa LP

CASIOTONE ROSA es un viaje, el resultado de un viaje y la propuesta de un viaje. Su guía es la poética (versionada en voces femeninas) de Joao Guimaraes Rosa. Los fragmentos se transforman en melodías, que se encuadran en armonías electrónicas suaves, sin perder la dulzura de las palabras que narran un desierto, agregándoles ritmos e instrumentos que evocan paisajes diversos. Las voces aparecen entre sintetizadores, charango, piano y grabaciones de campo, de frente a bases electrónicas orgánicas y downtempo. Este disco es el producto de los viajes a Brasil de San Ignacio, productor argentino, y cuenta con la colaboración de músicos y productores de los dos países: Jin Yerei (Fértil Discos, AR), Laura Lago, Yule Mansur, JGB (Gruta, Frente Bolivarista, BR), Wenceslada (Regional, CL), Salisme, Jovem Palerosi, Fulvio Faria a.k.a. Chom Crum y DJ Foi Mal (Galope Discos, BR).


San Ignacio certainly went further. He envisioned a project where he could incorporate his passion for literature and music. Therefore it leads to the born-digital-organic Casiotone Rosa EP which is a modern musical poetry, an experimental set of compositions based on excerpts from the book’s narrative “Grande Sertão: Veredas” & “A Terceira Margem do Rio”, both by Guimarães Rosa. They weaves two interesting stories. The first one is about Riobaldo Rosa’s life and his universal questions, along with his fellow Diadorim. The second one tells the story of a man who runs away from any interaction with family and society, a man who opts for complete solitude of the river, the place where, in a canoe, he incessantly paddling nowhere. They are narratives blended in discovery & self-knowledge themes. The tales’ background are the Brazilian backlands and its dangers. Under this intense & dusty scenario, San Ignacio returns a memory stream about his passage in Brazilian lands until his homecoming to Argentina. He delivered to us a work with several friends, where the link between friendship and music channeled the compositions.
