‘A Favola da Medusa’ plus guests.

The Lisbon based ‘A Favola da Medusa’ was formed in 2010 by Miguel Martins (various instruments) and Filipe Homem Fonseca (guitar) dealing with dadaist free-rock aesthetics, harpist Ana Dias completing a unique trio. Their music has lent itself ideally to film and tv soundtracks.
They also take opportunities to work with visiting musicians from different genres. In March 2012 on a short (less than 40 hours!) visit to Portugal, George Haslam played 4 concerts including the gig with the trio at Bar Teatro A Barraca, recorded live and heard on 3 tracks of this disc. The remaining tracks plot the trio’s work during the previous 2 years with other guests Sónia Montenegro, Bernardo Nascimento and Rebecca Gradissimo.

11/09/2014 George W. Harris

Concert settings are used for a rotating communal team which includes Ana Isabel Dias/harp, Filipe Homem Fonseca/g, George Haslam/bari, Miguel Martins/p-pedals-melodica, Rebecca Gradissimo/p, and Sonia Montenegro/laptop through seven highly intuitive pieces. There is a mix of free impressionism (“Gunakadeit”) and slug-it-out distortion and cacophony (“Charybdos”) which feel like the soundtrack to some artsy flick. Moody and eerie atmospheres are prevalent on “Requiem por N. Sr. da Agrela” and “A Terceira Sala” feature mixtures of laptop computers and quizzical melodicas, while Dias’ Harp is the connection between all tunes, sometimes creating sounds akin to the Orient, and other times going to the celestials. Must have been something to see, but I doubt if anyone in the crowd was humming a melody on the way out.
