FARWARMTH 

Afonso Arrepia Ferreira writes the soundtrack for life, death, what lies in between and what may lie beyond. Under the name FARWARMTH, he released his record IMMEASURABLE HEAVEN this year on the London based tape label ACR, an album that somehow embodies both the earthly and the celestial; its supernal atmosphere and weighty, dense harmonies often reveal the more modest and intimate sounds within. In between cello, piano and flutes, the application of textured electronics results in a kind of natural distortion that feels like it’s the result of his music overpowering the mixing board. The record emphasizes the beauty of being such a small part of something much larger, the bittersweet reality that our lives are so insignificant, yet reminds us that we still matter.
