about

"Breviário dos Pássaros" is a musical mosaic invoking an ecological language, a transition plan between humans, machines, birds, and spirits. It is a call to a mutant and pulsating technoshamanism. Music that exchanges fixed structures for the playfulness of instinctive inventiveness; the exploration of electroacoustic environments that emerge from the living biomechanical systems, resisting their own registers and producing their own songs, no longer as birds or men, but as the transitory and gigantic entanglement of vital drives; a musical mirage of life transcending itself.

...

"Tal como o pássaro de corda, metaforicamente, dava corda ao mundo de Toru Okada no romance de Murakami, o novo mundo proposto pelo músico e artista plástico mineiro João Carvalho aka Sentidor encontra no figurado cantar dos pássaros a roda motriz que o expande e multiplica, permitindo a existência da grande torrente inominável da vida."

― Fernando Gonçalves, Bodyspace.net
