Máquina Magnética was born from the meeting of four experimental artists with consolidated practices across both solo and collective work: Gustavo Costa, drummer, percussionist, and one of the heads of the Sonoscopia collective, on acoustic and electro-mechanic percussion; Pedro Tudela and Miguel Carvalhais, of the @c project and the Crónica label, on computers; and Rodrigo Carvalho, of the Openfield and Boris Chimp 504 collectives, on generative visuals and interactive lights.

Máquina Magnética explores the synergies and boundaries of each artist’s territory, intersecting the organic, the mechanical and the synthetic; studio and live recordings; free improvisation and composition; musical gestures and acousmatic sounds; audiovisual performance and visual music. These tensions build a cathartic space for performance developed across six pieces in an album recorded and mixed between two live settings — O’culto da Ajuda in Lisbon and gnration in Braga — and two studios — Sonoscopia and Crónica, both in Porto — in an ongoing creative process.
