EXPULSO
EXPULSO (Al revés) 2020


Um ritual de libertação e proteção contra o invisível desconhecido.

Assim refere-se a artista sonora May HD ao processo de gravação e produção do seu novo álbum EXPULSO, cujas ambientações sonoras de timbres densos, frequências graves e circulares, aludem ao período pandêmico vivenciado neste 2020.

Adepta da estética de gambiarra do Noisy Turntablism (discotecagem ruidosa), May experimenta neste trabalho a soma de elementos digitais que operam na linha tênue dos magnetismos estranhos, um tipo de efeito solar sobreposto à penumbra da madrugada.

Para imersão, recomenda-se o uso de headphone e máscara.

A ritual of liberation and protection against the invisible unknown.

That is how sound artist May HD refers to the recording and production process of her album EXPULSO, whose sound environments with dense timbres, low and circular frequencies, allude to the pandemic period experienced in 2020.

Adept of the improvisational aesthetic of Noisy Turntablism, in this work May experiments with the sum of digital elements that operate in the fine line of strange magnetisms, a type of solar effect superimposed on the gloom of dawn.

For immersion, the use of a headphone and a mask is recommended.

EP "Sonho Dobrado" de May HD lançado em 15/05/19
pelo selo Pan Y Rosas Discos (Chicago/ EUA)
Produzido por Junix 11


may HD | Sonho Dobrado

This sounds live, bloated with frisky, rickety turntablism and microkorg. This is my intro to Brazilian artist may HD‘s (Andrea May) sound and it comes with peaks and valleys, the good kind. At times the din of echo intrudes, but also somehow gives it its brusque mono-sheen. There’s a grinding noise layer with a voice sample that evolves out of drone. On the title track may HD leans towards the secretive in squeaks and small actions. It’s like a broken record circling round – stops, starts and agitation.
This hits me like the residual sounds you might get when a troupe is readying to open a traveling circus. Tanta takes this further by incorporating that sound you get when rubbing an inflated balloon acts as a quasi beat alongside truncated vocal samples on a loop. It has a groove, but its far from groovy, more like a barbershop quartet gone left.
In what quickly becomes a sound collage from two (or more) sources, seiva selva flutters in like a cranky sci-fi mixed with a Godzilla soundtrack. It’s a stunning collapse of right and left channels bantering back and forth, and the futile, yet ear-teasing attempt at making rhythm from fragments. The fleeting warble of tá me ouvindo bem? is next (and last). In these last six minutes she winds things up, encapsulates a frustrated someone banging away at a door, and then finds a certain solace in the complete in-between-ness of it all. For a noise record, this has a lot of restraint abutting the desolation of the human spirit. This is not to say Sonho Dobrado is overly melancholic, rather it seems to explore the shadier recesses in a unique way.



NOISE INVADE apresenta o registro bootleg da mixtape AUTOSAVE de May HD composta por 5 tracks do seu projeto solo "Noisy turntablism", segundo a artista sonora, um sinal de alerta que perambula nos ouvidos como disparador da potência no campo do sensível feminino, e se expande em elaborações performativas, contundentes e viscerais. (21.04.19)
