Lecture-Concert by meLê yamomo & Eurico Ferreira Mathias
meLê yamomo & Eurico Ferreira Mathias

There is no sound with a following one. Something is always vibrating, cheekbones, the skin of the face, yes, the entire body. European music history prefers fundamental tones, they are deemed to be “harmonic”. Bells, batons, gongs… most of the resonant bodies outside of Europe are different. The composer meLê yamomo and the cellist Eurico Ferreira Mathias set off on a quest to expand the listening habits for the successful encountering of “disharmonic” tones.
