Hablando de bandas que se llamaban "Caleidoscopio" y similares (ello empezó en el post del álbum homónimo del grupo mexicano Kaleidoscope), recordé esta banda brasilera que explora sobre un rock sinfónico en un espectro más bien "soft", y no tiene nada que ver con lo psicodélico. Voces femeninas y grandes músicos invitados que incluyen miembros de Quaterna Requiem, Bacamarte, Topos Uranos y otros. Este es un disco de producción independiente con mucho amor propio y dignidad, lean el comentario escrito para "Nucleusprog":

Tengo la suerte de comentar uno de los trabajos más bellos que he escuchado, surgido de esta parte del mundo que es Sudamérica.
Projeto Caleidoscopio es un talentoso dúo brasileño integrado por Analu Paredes, una belleza dueña de una sugestiva voz que recuerda, por momentos a Annie Haslam (quién saluda y felicita al dúo en el book interior) y por momentos a Sandy Leigh (Solstice), y por Arthur Nogueira, un versatil y creativo guitarrista y compositor; ambos conforman esta auténtica revelación "verdeamarelha".
En cuanto al contenido del álbum, puedo decir que momentos como "Ausencia", "Vira", o "Busca Solitaria", para citar sólo algunas grandes muestras de genuina belleza, y sigo repitiendo la palábra "Belleza" con tanta insistencia ya que es la palábra que mejor le cabe a "O Sete".
Flautas, violines, teclados y voces casi etéreas recrean atmósferas que transportan al oyente a mundos donde reina la perfección armónica y el ensueño. Participaciones "extras" de una impresionante legión de artistas tales como el inigualable Toninho Horta (Milton Nascimento, Caetano Veloso, etc.) uno de los más respetados músicos del Brasil; Elisa y Claudio Dantas de Quaterna Requiem (la banda del amigo José Roberto Crivano), Mestre Paulao, integrante de Bacamarte (toda una leyenda progresiva sudaméricana), Simo y André Santos del grupo Solar y muchos otros grandes que vienen a resaltar aún más (como si hiciera falta...) el resultado final de este buen disco debut (en mi modesta opinión, demasiado breve).
Projeto Caleidoscopio se incorpora con "O Sete" a la selecta escena progresiva brasileña con un brillo que ilusiona e induce a pensar en otras grandes realizaciones por venir.
"O Sete" es pura, intensa y genuina "Belleza". Una obligación: oírlo y disfrutarlo... y atesorarlo.
Sergio Vilar

Esta es su primer obra, siendo "Carrossel" su segundo LP y que nació en el 2002, sobre esos dos discos, basados tanto en la música sinfónica y clásica pero con una intención en no perder la identidad brasilera, que da como resultado un raro neo-progresivo sinfónico de muy dulce factura y una calidez pocas veces vistas (o escuchadas, mejor dicho) en el progresivo. Su fascinante música nos invita a viajar por frágiles mundos poéticos, de la mano de la voz de Analu Paredes. Mundos cuyos edificios son construidos con las cuerdas de la guitarra de Arthur Nogueira.

O Rio de Janeiro continua sendo um celeiro de bandas progressivas no Brasil. Desta vez temos o Projeto Caleidoscópio, liderado pela dupla Arthur "Topos Uranos" Nogueira e Analu Paredes. Esta última é sem dúvida uma das maiores surpresas em termos de voz no progressivo brasileiro, quiça na MPB. Singela, bela e doce, Analu não deixe nada a dever a estrelas como Annie Haslam (Renaissance), que inclusive fez belos comentários sobre o disco, juntamente com Marcus Viana. Destaque para a competência de Arthur, que entre outras coisas, conseguiu registrar o primeiro choro de sua filha ao nascer e adicionou-o em uma música (Marcapasso) e para a míriade de excelentes músicos que participaram do disco.

PROJETO CALEIDOSCÓPIO, led by Arthur Noguira (arrangements, lyrics, vocals, acoustic & electric guitar and music & vocals direction) and Analu Paredes (lead vocal, lyrics, vocals direction and executive producer) is a band that has nothing to do with the present-day Brazilian music scene.
In a country where the music business is now based on the selling of a product and not on the music itself, the couple gives much value to the song and the melody - their work's trademark - and that's not a very easy job for two independent artists.
Innovative, they are a Progressive Rock-oriented group with a strong Brazilian identity; they did not copy the music style, that has its roots in England, but re-created it, blending new elements that resulted in a impressive balance between vocals and instruments.
Recordings commenced in 12 January, 1999 and the couple began to make their dream come true; they have wanted to work together using their experience as music teachers and their appreciation for Progressive Rock for more than five years.
The main idea for "O Sete" (seven) was to have within the multiplicity of a kaleidoscope, that was to be shown to the public through the various guest musicians with different timbres and hues playing on the album.
Analu and Arthur chose the musicians by their identity, always thinking wheather they would like to play a specific song or not. That concern made the participants' interaction possible, and everybody worked just perfect together as in a kaleidoscope.
The merit to "glue the small pieces together", i.e. to make the instrumentalists play precisely without rehearsing or taking part in the compositions belongs to Arthur Nogueira.
Despite having acted like a Maestro, he did not put any limits on the guest musicians' improvisations, in which him and Analu Paredes had thought specially - and in separate - to play a track on their album. With such a creative imagination, the couple managed to get along really well with all the instrumentalists that ended up building a complicity with the Project, becoming true collaborators of the CD.
The great effort made by these two idealists from Rio de Janeiro was diversified from the work's conception, that included dealing with a large number of people, to the production and the need to supervise every detail. They even bought food for everybody that attended the recordings !
Analu was expecting her daughter for August, but in May she travelled to Belo Horizonte, Minas Gerais, with Arthur to record with Toninho Horta. They did everything they could despite all the financial problems that an independent production has.
After Camila's birth, they started mixing their CD, They were very busy for they had to take care of the baby and her oldest brother, Gabriel, and also be able to listen to eveything that was being done at the same time.
Union is the key word to define this couple appealing. When it comes to professionalism, they try to achieve their very best by giving each other vocals direction, for instance. The strength we can see in them we can also hear in their songs.
The celebration of this duo's work was completed when their idols made beautiful comments on "O Sete"; their names were: Annie Haslam (from Renaissance) and Marcus Viana (from Sagrado). These two artists were the reason why Arthur Nogueira and Analu Paredes deceided to become musicians.
In spite of not being well-known artists, Analu had already received compliments from João Carlos Assis Brasil and Ivan Lins, and Arthur was described as a virtuoso guitarist for his performance on Topos Uranos' "Suit Mística"

Arthur Nogueira and Analu Paredes are the founders and creative spirit behind the Rio De Janeiro-based Brazilian progressive rock ensemble Projeto Caliedoscopio. Their debut album O Sete (Seven) (CLD001) is a cohesive collaboration of seven tremendous tracks that include inputs from eighteen additional artists. Progressive music enthusiasts with a passion for female vocals that enjoy bands like Renaissance, Annie Haslam , Quidam (review), Sagrado Coração da Terra, You And I (feature), and Blackmore's Night, should adore this album. If you read no further, be sure to check out the soundbites on Projeto Caleidoscópio's Shockwave Flash-enhanced website. There you can also read about the project, learn more about the other musicians involved and view credits as well as attractive photos of Analu and Arthur with other well known artists, including Annie Haslam.
Influences for O Sete are evident from Analu's vocalise and Arthur's guitar work in the track "Ausencia (Absence)." Renaissance, Annie Haslam and Sagrado immediately come to mind. Sung entirely in Portuguese (the language spoken in Brazil), like the lovely ballad "Livre Em Queda Livre (Free In Freefall)" that follows as the second track on the album, the vocals are crystalline. Interestingly, comments both from Annie Haslam (Renaissance) and Sagrado's Marcus Viana in both Portuguese and English are included in the lovely artwork that accompanies the compact disc. Annie wrote, "Analu's voice is haunting and has a sweet passion that sounds like it has come from deep in her heart."
We asked Analu and Arthur about their songwriting influences. They told us, "We were influenced by a lot of artists through our entire life because we never had prejudice against any kind of art. When we first started learning music, we used to play and listen to everything we could." They continued, "We loved Rachmaninov, Debussy, Villa-Lobos, Tom Jobim, Egberto Gismonti, Pat Metheny, Renaissance, Marillion and so on. We prefer the progressive rock style, though, for we are free to create new stuff and be ourselves at the same time."
Analu and Arthur are into listening to as much music as they can, and despite having very similar tastes in music, they told us their favourites individually. Analu told us that her favourites include, "Annie Haslam & Renaissance (I’ve been listening to them for years), Lorena MaCkenitt, Gary Moore, Pat Metheny, Topos Uranos, Buenos Aires 8, Swingle Singers, Enya, Sarah Brightman and Rick Wakeman." Arthur added his, "Marillion, Pink Floyd, Sagrado Coração da Terra, Yes, Rush, Supertramp, Tom Jobim, Egberto Gismonti, Toninho Horta and Dream Theater—I was introduced to their music recently and really liked it." These influences are combined effectively in the couple's music.
The album's third track "Vira (She Will Come)" is a light progressive track with some jazz influences. The complex instrumental arrangements and Analu's soaring vocals are wonderful. A violin solo is especially notable. We asked Analu how she developed her vocal style. She told us, "I’ve been studying music for quite a long time and had great names in Brazilian music scene as teachers. I studied Opera at the University, Renaissance & Medieval music, and also I joined a sort of Gregorian Choir (actually it was a group) where we studied the original compositions (Gradual Triplex). I embarked upon a solo career and vocal groups too. I have always tried to diversify in my musical career and not waste any opportunity. I am a very honest and intense human being. I don’t do things that I don’t like. My vocal style was developed from the will to search my own identity - of course that the guitar and harmony lessons played a big part on this. At the present moment, the technique I achieved is being used to try to touch other people’s hearts and show them the real meaning of the songs that I am singing. I love the progressive rock style for I feel as if my voice is working as an instrument." It certainly does!
While Brazilian progressive musical themes certainly come through in the album's early tracks, an impressive Spanish-sounding acoustic guitar part and other effects contribute to the more urban sound of "Marcapasso (Pacemaker)." Analu's vocals are sweet and sensitive.
Complex classically derived arrangements add to the colour and depth of the recording in several of the album's tracks and are certainly the foundation of the track "Busca Solitaria (Lonely Search)" which also has lovely vocal harmonies similar in sound to Second Story (review). We asked Arthur and Analu about the songwriting process. They told us, "Initially we had an idea of writing songs to be on our CD only. When those songs were almost finished, we realized that each one of them were kind of made for some musicians we knew. We came up with the idea of the kaleidoscope, because we didn’t want to form any band, but the several guest musicians worked so perfectly together on our album, O Sete, that we decided to use its name."
We asked about the sequences they go through when writing the music and they told us, "... we really don’t have a methodology, if we can call it that. We can feel like writing something at anytime, as the two us have always stayed tuned to each other’s ideas for songs; that’s the reason why the ideas can be developed so easily." Analu and Arthur told us that they supervised every little detail. Analu said, "All the musicians had received the sheet of music with everything they had to play, and when they started to record the songs they were conducted by Arthur in a way where their own style in playing and creativiness were preserved." Arthur added, "All the vocals were rehearsed directed by Analu. We tried to create a good atmosphere and the recordings ended up being a meeting of friends." They are consummate professionals in every way.
"Singelo Adeus (Simple Goodbye)" is another sensitive ballad with a lovely flute part that sticks out above yet contributes to the instrumental foundation comprised of strings and other orchestral elements. Vocal harmonies perfectly compliment Analu's sensitive lead.
The duo have made music the focus of their career and have a music school where Arthur gives guitar lessons and Analu gives teaches singing classes. Arthur told us, "We did jingles for TV commercials, soundtracks, etc. We are together all the time and having the same job has surely helped us not only in our careers, but in our marriage too." They live busy lives. Analu added, "I enjoy cooking exotic dishes, dancing and taking care of my two children, Gabriel and Camila." Arthur told us, "I really like to take care of my fish bowl, to assemble the ship and plane models and driving. Also, I love to look after the kids and play with them."
Progressive artists often have very firm views on record labels and it was interesting to learn that Arthur and Analu are no exception. O Sete is a tremendous product, professionally perfect in every way, yet it is entirely self-produced and self-released. They told us, "In the past ten years, here in Brazil, the major labels are limited to releasing CD’s of one or two music styles. There isn’t a concern in selling good music with a strong identity. The record companies only sell bloated music styles to earn lots of money. Some great artists we know had had lots of difficulties in releasing their material; they had to do everything all by themselves. But the most amazing fact in this is that abroad they are respected and have achieved all the compliments they deserve. We then decided not to waste time waiting to be signed to a major label, but we are open to make deals with national and international labels. We are sure that if this ever happens, our album will sell more and we could even do some shows abroad."
We asked about their live performances as creating the rich sound on the album with the huge array of artists involved in the project would likely be quite challenging. Analu told us, "We already did several live shows, not only performing progressive rock music but also some different stuff. Arthur released a progressive rock album called Suite Mística with the band Topos Uranos. Projeto Caleidoscópio is the most recent work and we will be rehearsing for our concerts to promote it. We are going to create our own label, Caleidoscópio Produções Artísticas, to release our future albums and some other progressive rock artists too."
The album's final track "Imenso Abism (Immense Abyss)" is a slow moving progressive number with several different textures. Orchestrally rich with several notable guitar and keyboard excursions, it illustrates the virtuosity of the artists involved. Perfectly produced, the vocal track remains soft, heartfelt and sweet.
The artwork for their album and their website has been carefully crafted to seamlessly meld with the music. They proudly told us, "We are always trying to achieve the best from ourselves in our careers. We have high standards of technique and art. With our CD and Web Site it couldn’t be any different. The site was made by BRAZILWEB, a company that had already made many other web sites using the Shockwave Flash technique, which we found astonishing. This company has given us a great support. The album cover was made by Bernard, who is a designer that made covers for other Progressive Rock artists here in Brazil."
Clearly the artists efforts are being noted on the internet and they are already big believers in the technology. They told us, "The internet is surely a great way to disseminate ideas nowadays. It really helps us getting more information and the communication between people everywhere. We are very glad with the support that this great technology has given us and we would like to ask that all the progresive rock fans that are linked to the internet to visit our website, write on our guestbook and buy our album." Details on how to do so will be posted here soon.
Projeto Caleidoscópio's album O Sete is a lovely collection of soft orchestrally rich progressive music. It is technically superb and has stunning production quality in every respect. Analu's lovely vocals give the album a sweet heartfelt texture that perfectly compliments their songwriting. We certainly wish the group the best success in this new millenium. A tremendous debut album in every respect, O Sete is worth a long distance journey—a must listen!

Documental: Estallido Social en Chile (2020)

"Desde el 18 de octubre miles de chilenos salieron a las calles. Su principal motivo fue plantarse ante un aumento en el precio del boleto del metro, pero ahora la sociedad sigue enardecida y exige un cambio en el modelo económico neoliberal que existe en el país desde hace más de 30 años y que ha cultivado una alta desigualdad. La crisis se ha agudizado debido a la represión con la que el Gobierno ha respondido a los reclamos". Así se presenta un documental realizado por el equipo de @PiensaPrensa, en medio de una lucha que está lejos de acabar y aún menos con un brío que a pesar de la pandemia no se ha apaciguado. Aquí, parte de la historia que se escribe día a día y que en el futuro se estudiará en los libros.


La policía chilena (carabineros) ha respondido a los movimientos de los manifestantes con agua, lanzamiento de gases lacrimógenos y disparos de perdigones. Desde el comienzo de las protestas los enfrentamientos han dejado más de 2.500 heridos y decenas de personas m…

FFWD (The Orb + Robert Fripp) - FFWD (1994)

Otra vez tenemos un aporte de Lean que nos vuelve a traer a la palestra un disco de un proyecto entre el señor Fripp y The Orb, muy volado, muy experimental, muy ambiental... realmente una rareza que entra dentro de los discos para odiar o para amar sin términos medios, porque esto es así, no tiene grises. Otro disco para que disfruten (o no) en otro fin de semana pandémico.

FFWD is an eponymous album by FFWD - Robert Fripp, Thomas Fehlmann, Kris Weston, and Dr. Alex Paterson.
The title is also a play on the abbreviation often used on the fast forward control of a tape deck or CD player, also referenced in the "double-arrow" graphic used on the cover.

Spinetta, esquina Artaud

En el pasado mes de junio, en medio de la cuarentena, se publicó un nuevo álbum de Luis Alberto Spinetta, el concierto de presentación de una de sus mayores obras: Artaud. Hoy, es considerado por la crítica el mejor disco de la historia del rock argentino, suscribo esa idea. Más allá de contiendas, argumentos y comparaciones es un buen momento para escuchar sonidos que pintan un tiempo particular, agitado y profundo que dejó secuelas que leemos, miramos y escuchamos en tantos formatos. Este disco parece un documental de época. Una excelente nota de Jorge Garacotche (líder de Canturbe y miembro de la movida de AMIBA) para fervor.com.ar.


Por Jorge Garacotche

Un domingo 28 de octubre de 1973, exactamente a las 11 de la mañana, sucedió algo insólito en plena avenida Corrientes, se presentó Artaud. Llegó al Teatro Astral de la mano de Luis Alberto Spinetta, se metió tras unas cuerdas y sonó hasta el mediodía. Esto viene a colación de un hecho muy importante para nuestra cultura, que ocurri…

El beat y el pop psicodélico son el plato fuerte de este enorme trabajo que, si eres beatlemaniáco, no te va a defraudar.

Piazzolla y la Historia de su “Retrato de Alfredo Gobbi”

Astor Piazzolla había vueto embalado de Francia, tras un año de estudios con Nadia Boulanger y puso en el Octeto los objetivos que le había señalado la gran pedagoga francesa, más lo que él llevaba en su sangre como genes musicales. La fórmula era explosiva y válida para toda su obra, fundamentalmente para la posterior a 1955. Los solistas de aquella agrupación de cuerdas eran él, Elvino Vardaro en violín, José Vasallo en contrabajo y José Bragato en cello. Corría el año 1957 y con aquel conjunto había terminado de grabar para Music Hall (sigla 65001) el LP "Tango en Hi Fi", que había tenido una más que modesta recepción.
En Bahía Blanca, mi ciudad natal, se había organizado un recital a efecturse en el viejo Palacio del Cine, a despecho de su pésima acústica. Me tocó entrevistarlo para el diario local. Y me dio la impresión de un poseído. De uno incapaz de plantearse dudas. Ni siquiera cuando, dos o tres veces, le observé la dura resistencia que iba a encontrar en un ambien…

'Entre la batuta y el rock' Francisco Lequerica y su "Summon EP"

Hoy les presento a Francisco Lequerica. Uno de los 3 compositores sinfónicos nativos y activos de la ciudad de Cartagena, Bolívar (Caribe colombiano) que con mucho gusto accedió a una entrevista para el blog cabezón, en la que en un principio buscaba tratar y promocionar su último trabajo titulado "Summon", pero la ocasión misma nos llevó a hablar sobre diversos problemas a través de una serie de observaciones brillantes propias de un artista mayúsculo acerca de la situación del escenario artístico actual, la labor creativa de un músico auténtico, y sobre cómo es vivir entre la batuta y el rock. 

Viaje al Pasado de Spinetta

El lanzamiento del célebre disco de Pescado Rabioso por un solitario Spinetta en el Teatro Astral fue por años un misterio dormido en grabaciones de dudosa calidad. Votado como el primero de Los 100 mejores álbumes del rock argentino según Rolling Stone, desde ahora su presentación de 1973 circula en versión oficial. "Pescado Rabioso es una idea musical creada en 1971 por Luis Alberto Spinetta. A través de esta idea tocaron en grabaciones y actuaciones los siguientes músicos: Juan Carlos Amaya, Osvaldo Frascino, Carlos Miguel Cutaia y David Oscar Lebón. Los músicos que aparecen en este disco sólo están ligados a la idea Pescado Rabioso por las circunstancias de la grabación y a expreso pedido de Luis Alberto Spinetta" aclaraba, en ese sentido, el sobre interno de aquella histórica tapa irregular pergeñada junto a Juan Gatti. El disco fue considerado entre los mejores discos de rock en la historia argentina, "Artaud" es un disco oscuro en momentos en que la Argentin…

Artaud 1973: El Disco Donde Spinetta Forzó Sus Límites

La familia Spinetta recuperó y remasterizó la grabación de la presentación de 'Artaud', el mejor disco de rock nacional según Rolling Stone, en 1973. El 28 de octubre de 1973 a las 11 de la mañana, Luis Alberto Spinetta imprimía sobre el escenario del Teatro Astral una página dorada para la historia del rock argentino. La presentación de Artaud, su último disco bajo el nombre de Pescado Rabioso -elegido por RS como el mejor álbum del rock nacional-, lo encontraba sin banda y decidido a inaugurar el comienzo de una nueva era artística. Así fue que Spinetta se cargó un show en solitario, con su guitarra acústica y nuevas canciones como "Todas las hojas son del viento", "Bajan" y "Cantata de puentes amarillos", transformando aquella hora quince de concierto en una poderosa performance, dialéctica y desafiante, para con su pasado y su futuro.

Alejandro Del Prado - Dejo Constancia (1982)

#Músicaparaelencierro. "Cabezonas/es, esto es una obra de arte de los 80, para disfrutar hasta el hartazgo, el primer disco de Alejandro del Prado, una belleza total". Así comienza el comentario del Mago Alberto sobre este disco de Alejandro Del Prado, alguien que hacía rato tenía pensado traer al blog cabezón pero por alguna razón recién cae por estos pagos. Un inconseguible sobre poemas musicalizados por Del Prado del argentino Jorge Boccanera, que cuenta con la participación de Litto Nebbia, Daniel Binelli y Silvio Rodríguez, que fuera grabado en 1980, siendo su primer disco luego de su participación en Saloma, pero fue editado recién dos años después. De inclinaciones folklóricas y tangueras, un cantautor que reunió como nadie tango, rock, murga, milonga y más, y dejamos constancia del primer disco de Del Prado.
