b. Angola. Frequently recalling the task of American minimalist composer Steve Reich, Gama’s interesting and gorgeous music is influenced by the fact that because of migration and nomadism, traditional African devices experienced to adjust throughout background while simultaneously keeping their traditional audio and identity. Given birth to in Angola of Portuguese source, Gama desire for the traditional devices of his birthplace resulted in him learning the kissange (or thumb piano), the hungo (a musical bow) alongside learning the 12-string acoustic guitar. In the first 90s, having finished an engineering level in consumer electronics and marketing communications and having worked well in the region of digital transmission processing, he started building his Pangeia Instrumentos, a variety of contemporary devices designed and constructed from traditional components including wood, metallic and found items. Frequently sculptural, gorgeous and unusual, these devices juxtapose the present day and the historic and, as though to stress the significance of dialogue and posting, can frequently be performed by two different people at exactly the same time. These self-made devices include one influenced by way of a kalimba. Even though kalimba is typically created from a plank container or calabash, Gama built his very own from a discarded Angolan soldier’s helmet. Such activities add a supplementary strength to Gama’s currently shifting music and imply an additional political framework to his sonic masterpieces. Gama is section of PangeiArt, a trans-national nonprofit ethnic association of music artists, artists, academics and folks, that produces ethnic exchange projects predicated on innovative procedures in Africa, SOUTH USA as well as the Caribbean countries. Both in group and single contexts, Gama provides provided his music exhibited his musical instruments and audio installations internationally and he provides made comprehensive field recordings for many tasks in Angola, Cuba, Colombia, South Africa, Namibia and Brazil. Gama’s Pangeia Instrumentos was certified by PangeiArt for discharge in the united kingdom via Rephlex Information, the label co-run by Richard D. Adam aka the Aphex Twin. Unusually for the label, the documenting eschewed digital interventions but still Pangeia Instrumentos sat easily alongside produces by label luminaries such as for example Leila, Pierre Bastien and Adam himself. Later in 2003, an exhibition of Gama’s musical instruments in London was opened up by ambient DJ pieces from Rephlex performers.
