Paisiel is the enigmatic name given to this project consisting of the Portuguese drummer, percussionist and sonic sculptor João Pais Filipe and the German saxophonist Julius Gabriel. Based on an individual exploration of the sound and on the expressive possibilities of their instruments, the duo’s music seeks to join and systematize their influences, albeit without any obvious correspondences or affinities – resulting in textured and abstract melodies propelled by a mechanical and existential percussion that morphs into a kinetic trance. Heterodox and digressive musicians, moving freely between experimental music, jazz, rock and other new musical categories, João Pais Filipe and Julius Gabriel create radiographic music that inhabits somewhere between the reception and the emission of signal, like a cosmic telephone exchange.
