Barreiro International Exploratory Music Festival
Following acclaimed performances at CCB and GNRation, Rafael Toral's Space Quartet lands at OUT.FEST to deliver us their rigorous and unique vision of jazz. A brilliant cluster comprised of Hugo Antunes - double bass -, Nuno Morão - drums -, Nuno Torres - alto saxophone - and, of course, mastermind Toral on acoustic and electronic feedback and amplifier, the music created by this band develops in a continuous flow and movement, constantly renovating, where the spirit, matter and phrasing of jazz meshes with traditions from ambient or rock. In the words of Toral, "standards from another planet" that recently came to light in two releases: Directions, a studio recording released by Clean Feed and Under the Sun, recorded live. Music that still doesn't exist anywhere else, but here.
