The Murmurous Playground  


The Murmurous Playground is a side-project and a music collective led by Centeio and Duarte Maltez, from Oporto, Portugal.

Following the spare time on their main project, between rehearsing and studio sessions they started experimenting, creating and writing with no aim and without boundaries. Each began to experiment separately and it wasn’t long until the first results appeared. The first serious contact with electronic equipment was exciting and stress-relieving, experiencing different recording techniques from what they were accustomed and always producing their own material. In less than a week they got their separate work together to simply release an album, Somber Fuss Experiments.

The album offers manipulated acoustic guitars, extremely reverberated spaces, tape effects, drone tibetan cup and other vibrating instruments, modulation and oscillation with synths, odd pianos, field recording soundscapes, loops and noises.

Ambiental, Minimal, Experimental.
