A calling card for UN, a hybrid collective somehow led by Anselmo
Canha, Heitor Alvelos and José Maria Lopes. Its claimed mission is the
reversal of all things deserving of reversal: literally, metaphorically
and magically. Watch out for the greatest hits of all time sung
backwards some time in the near future — a homage to long-held myths of
satanic backmasking from the golden age of vinyl.
The Geometry of an Abyss is a mash-up of various sources developed by UN between 2003-2010:
Field recordings of occasional traffic in downtown Porto at 3AM, 2003.
The Monkey and the Guitar do BlackNoddy, 2006.
Field recordings @ CCStop: dozens of rock bands rehearse in a
bankrupt shopping mall, their sounds echoing and mashing through the
deserted corridors, 2007.
A shredded orchestra of 10 harmonicas, Awarehouse of Why, Aveiro, October 2007. Conducted by Len Massey and HA.
Live Tunisian horn and American trumpet improvs over the phone to the UK, December 2007.
JML and AC untune an acoustic guitar by a river bank in Orbacém,
Northern Portugal, late Summer 2008. HA provides water percussion in the
Silvestrov karaoke on a Sunday morning, late Summer 2009.
Solo late-night electric guitar solos, December 2009.
Munched and spit out against the clock by HA, December 2010. Properly
reconstructed and mastered by AC a few days later. More un at unwww.org
