Haarvöl, a collective project based in Portugal with three permanent members, has been active in the field of experimental music since the end of 2012.
Haarvöl’s music is conceptually developed in the exploration of the properties of sounds in order to achieve cinematic and imaging environments. Hence the emphasis on non-illustrative interaction of sounds with images, which is evident in the videos purposely prepared for certain compositions and that can be viewed on the Vimeo page of the project (*).
The sounds are not restricted to their medial origins: both digital and analog sources are used and mixed.
“Hebetude" is the first album of the project and was composed in the second half of 2013. It explores the compositional features around the idea of cinematic music in which attention to detail and complexity of sounds are a sign of the group’s identity.
The CD album is a numbered limited edition (80 copies). The cover is signed by designer José Carneiro and manually silkscreen printed in the studio of artist Joana Paradinha.
Release will take place on November 8 and it will be accompanied by the debut of a music video directed by Jerónimo Rocha and produced by take it easy for one of the themes of the album.
The digital version will have a bonus track and video. Purchasers will be entitled to the full digital version (high-quality download in MP3, FLAC and more) by introducing the code inside the packaging. A pre-sale will be made from November 8 on the publisher's site, and purchase of the CD album during this period will be entitled to a further bonus theme. This promotion is also valid for all those who purchase the CD album at the publishing company within 15 days after the edition.
