“ACM” is the translation into sounds of composer Marcel Rocha’s interpretation of the
spiritual world of the people who live in deep connection with nature. With this work,
Marcel tries to capture some rhythms that have been ‘danced to’ by the people of the
earth since the beginning of time and glues them together through the use of sound
manipulation and original music performances.These compositions were created by
using ethnic and nature sounds, blending them with electric guitar effects
and electronic noises.Marcel likes to think of “ACM” as an appreciation
of the non-local Universal Mind.
The track “Dancing Berimbau” is a special contribution by Siamgda using source
material by Marcel Rocha – sounds like Asia, Europe and South America joining
together for a universal dancing celebration.
