    Event Summary

    ‘Rafael Toral’ performs "Wave Field” Surround AV Version
    Rafael Toral has been intrigued by the potential of sound and the functions of music since he was a teenager. As a composer and performer, he has been deeply involved with Rock, Ambient, Contemporary, Electronic and Free Jazz music in different periods of his life.
    After Drag City's recent LP reissue of "Wave Field", Rafael Toral responds to the challenge of revisiting this seminal album of Ambient music that he recorded with the guitar in 1994. Its transformative character and expansive crossing of genre boundaries remain intact a quarter of a century later.
    Bezbog (Favela Discos) is music with amplified and electronically transformed saxophone, trumpet and percussion. In a live setting it is a flux of sound and music sculpting time with timbre, form and pulse. Its latest work “Chernobog” is a computer game and a single with two compositions released under Favela Discos.
    About the programme:
    "The events programme for the exhibition has been deeply infused by Paula Rego’s independent spirit of defiance: Collaborative, diverse and explorative, the path trailed by the generation of artists present, has been opened up and enlightened by Paula Rego’s beacon of creative autonomy and freedom.
    We feel the programme is therefore, as much an atmospheric companion for the retrospective, as it is a tribute to Paula Rego’s deep, and long lasting influence in cutting through the thick air of Portugal’s “dusty” legacy of political dictatorship at many levels. Then and now, Paula’s fearless art touches, enlightens and expands."

    The Portuguese Conspiracy is an independent creative platform designed to promote and empower contemporary Portuguese creativity in the UK.
    Generously supported by Camões Institute.

    Price: £8 advance, £10 on the door.
