HOMO/HystericalOneManOrchestra is Filipe Silva’s solo project, in which he makes frequent use of the acoustic phenomenon of feedback both as a sonic element and as a manifestation of cyclical cause-and-effect events, exploring the effects of spatial factors in the shaping of sound. HOMO’s performances are based on the relation between bodily gesture and the production of sound, lying at the intersection of base acoustic principles, shamanic evocation and lo-fi illusionism.
Quoting the artist, this Marvellous Tone‘s release ” ‘Music For Listener‘ further explores my interest in the role of the listener’s perception in shaping the outcome of a piece of music. This interest has been pursued previously in the tracks ‘Extract Of Trinity’ and ‘Eight Thirds Or Approximately Two Six Six Six’, included in the compilations ‘Carnaval de Natal’ (V/A, Lovers & Lollypops 2014) and ‘From Ritual To Romance’ (V/A, EdP/DEV 2015). ”
