Disc one: “Heart Frostbite” intends, through this physiological impossibility, to lead to a metaphor, maintaining a thematic coherence that has guided the work of Marçal dos Campos and philosophy intrinsic to the New Emotion. Here, a frostbite in the heart, obviously does not have its origin in exposure to low temperatures, but may have its cause in strong emotions or deep feelings of nostalgia.
Disco two: “New Emotion Revisited 2002-2015”, released fifteen years after the release of Ástato CD-R’s first album (EP Bip! Um Tigre Ás! By Ana), is a split LP that brings together some of the most striking tracks by two of the most consistent producers within the genre: Ana3 (which started out as just Ana) and Marçal dos Campos. In addition to the historical value, for this is the only album ever dedicated to Nova Emoção, released in vinyl, this compilation is also a tribute to an artistic micro-movement and the Ástato CD-R label. For this reason, following in the footsteps of the now defunct label, both inserts were drawn by two essential artists within Porto’s artist-run spaces: André Sousa and Isabel Carvalho.
Released with the kind support of Criatório‘s Program – Câmara Municipal do Porto.
