"Paisagens Sonoras em Õstrõ Hyija" is the new full-length release of the Brazilian improviser/composer Thelmo Cristovam who has already been introduced to Europe through his releases on labels like TIBProd., Krakilsk, Desetxea and Test Tube among others. In this collection of diverse-natured recordings that took place in various moments between 2003 and 2006, at v(g)erme mobile, Thelmo Cristovam copes with heavily treated acoustic guitar on track 1, "Aço" (2003), with c-melody saxophone and amplified objects, all processed beyond belief on track 2, "Os Jardins Eletromagnéticos de Ur" (2004), with pure field recordings being captured/mixed in real-time on track 3, "Pradarias Inversas" (2005) and with concept-specific recordings of walls, floors and windows of a building making a sonic collage of musique concrète on track 4, "Construções em Barro, Vidro e Plasma" (2006). "Paisagens Sonoras em Õstrõ Hyija" deals with abstract sonic fields, those of "Õstrõ Hyija" - an imaginary place that could be a planet, a city, a country or a dimension, in Thelmo Cristovam's own words. Crafted with utter care, apart from the audio content, also is the graphic artwork that is based on a collage/painting by Fotini Kallianou.
