Tremor Festival takes place from the 4th to the 8th of April in the island of São Miguel, in the Azores, Portugal. In 2017, São Miguel becomes a priviledged stage for music, with an interdisciplinary program that includes film screenings, surprise concerts in unexpected locations, dialogues with the landscape, workshops, art, music in the community and artistic residencies. On the last day, Ponta Delgada is shaken up with concerts in multiple stages of the city, revealing the city inside and out and turning the Azores biggest island into a creative playground.

    AZ-RAP Filhos do Vento - Red Bull Media House  @ Armazém do Armador, Porto de Pescas de Rabo de Peixe

    AZ-RAP: Filhos do Vento is Red Bull Media House documentary produced for TREMOR festival. It portrays the Azorean hip-hop scene, focusing its lenses in the communities from Terceira and São Miguel islands, and exploring the singular cultural dynamics and sounds with roots deep in the USA. AZ-RAP highlights the testimonies from various important artists for the scene, including legendary mc Sandro G, who find in their condition of islanders the strength to produce beats and write rhymes. These rappers look for inspiration in the same elements that defined the course of the locals’ history and lives, in an island cluster right between two continents deep in an endless ocean.

    This project is based on a process of investigation, presentation and curatorial follow up started on a challenge made to jazz combo Volúpia das Cinzas, comprised of Gabriel Ferrandini, Hernâni Faustino, and Pedro Sousa. During an artistic residence previous to the festival, the band will work on new pieces for drum, saxofone and upright bass.

    Gala Drop started as a duo and slowly evolved to what is now a quintet, an harmonious mix of electronic waves and organic grooves with an unmistakable approach to sound textures. The Lisbon-based outfit will move their headquarters to Arquipélago - Centro de Artes Contemporâneas, in São Miguel, and work on new music to add to their ongrowing discography.

    Black is the solo project from Nelson Gomes of Gala Drop, where he thrives as a producer with a thing for dancefloor and African American cultures. Joining both passions in the studio, Black creates a unique space blend of soul, with disco grooves, and off the radar geography exploration. Sooner then expected, you’ll be singing sick tunes with eyes wide shut.

    “I’d Like to portray the youth of São Miguel, Azores. I don’t plan on staying just in Ponta Delgada, but to go to some of the neighborhoods in Ribeira Grande (Rabo de Peixe, for instance), Nordeste, Povoação (Furnas), Lagoa, and Vila Franca do Campo. This approach goes accordingly with the work I’ve been developing over the last years, such as ‘Jovens de Atenas’ (2012), ‘The Passanger’ (2014), ‘Behaviour of Being’, and ‘Quel Pedra’ (2016). I take interest in the insularity issue, in understanding how the youth behaves, the type of groups it subdivides itself, and the kind of openness and freedom they enjoy. It also interests me genuineness and transgression, its force, freedom, and the ways it is expressed. I intend on portraying the younglings in their various social contexts and landscapes in an intimate manner, just as I’ve been doing.”

    During the festival, Pauliana will start her artistic residency in photography coproduced by TREMOR, Galeria Fonseca Macedo, and Walk&Talk festival. This will be the first period, the search of phase, of a two year work (2017-18) on the Azores and their communities.

    Pauliana Valente Pimentel, born in Lisbon in 1975, and has been working in photography since 1999. She started as a photo-reporter for various newspapers and magazines, but soon grow into displaying her works in individual and collective exhibitions, both in Portugal and abroad. Pauliana is more than a photographer: Pauliana is a published, award winning author, and a featured artist in many important collections, galleries and museums.

    Either as a character or recoding her own universe, Haley Fohr always comes through with the same breathtaking qualities: a haunting voice and the wits to make truly intricate and complex fingerpicking guitar melodies. The combination of both elements has always produced the same eery effect in her music. Having dedicated her past two years to Jackie Lynn, a new alias for her music, Fohr returns now to the ghostly Circuit des Yeux outfit, with whom the Portuguese music scene is more familiar. Get your chests ready, this will be a heartbreaker.

    We do know there are no azores in the Azores, a species of bird that early Portuguese explorers thought to have spotted in the island cluster. But there are milhafres, and DJ Milhafre, specially, thrives from his islander condition, focusing his sets on other islands from Cape Verde, where funaná is fuel for dancing. Milhafre fell in love with african music, semba, rebita, funaná and merengue that will make you fall in love for his taste and dance while your legs still work.

    Jacco Gardner is our baroque pop guru, standing to the genre as we imagine Bach himself stood for baroque music: essential, recomendable and, most of all, flawless. In TREMOR, the Netherland-born composer will work in artistic residence to produce some sonic experience for one to get lost in the wilderness. The outcome will be presented during a tracking experience in Azores, followed by Jacco himself performing in a secret, yet beautiful place. Something to live and to remember.

    Natália, a Diva Tragicómica

    A classically trained singer in her various tv appearances, in a ungovernable document. She is Natália de Andrade. Natália feels her greatness is often misunderstood, because she really is bigger than Maria Callas. There are lots of deluded divas all over the world, but none quite like her. Who was this woman? A cult dedicated to her emerged, with various different aspects to it: the audience knows her as an echo of a impersonation popularized by famous Portuguese comedian Herman José, and classical musicians as a fascinating character. But the cult is, indeed, builded in Natália’s character, and knowing the person behind it was never a priority.

    The axis between Barcelos, Lisbon, and Ponta Delgada we’ll take shape in TREMOR via a battle of drummers, where three virtuosos will face each other in a never heard joint effort between percussionists. Moving to the introductions: Krake is Pedro Oliveira, who solo crosses looping stations with his wits on the skins; Gabriel Ferrandini is the most safe bet for Portuguese music one can call; and Ricardo Reis is a local drummer, but with international wits to bring to the table. TREMOR will witness the most syncopated piece of communication that ever was.

    Ghost Hunt
    Ghost Hunt @ Solar da Graça

    Ghost Hunt is a duo from Coimbra, a Portuguese city known for its rock bands. Ghost Hunt is as rock as it is electronic; as heavy as danceable, and as part of this world as of another world yet to be described by the laws of physics. They use the sheer energy of amplifiers to get their grooves on and transform rock riffs and pop tunes into exciting techno, a 808 balance and an otherworldly psychedelic trance in a blink of an eye. You’re always sure where it all started, but one can never know where are they taking us. What will be started at TREMOR can end in Berghain or in Brazil - but it started in the heart of the Atlantic.

    Favela Discos is a Porto-based collective where all things risky emerge due to their colab nature and will to always do more. From experimental electronic outputs to funaná jams, and even a mix of all of the above, one can expect pretty much everything from Favela Discos and still be surprised. For their Favela Riscos endeavor, the collective focus their wits on moody electronics, harsh techno beats, and late night risky businesses, ideal for the most wild dancefloor parties.

    Part of the staff of inescapable Lisbon venue Lux, Varela is, to say the least, a true connaisseur of sound and music ideal for dancefloor parties and all kinds of raves. He knows the whereabouts of the human body and how to make it move, pointedly attacking hips, legs and feet with sick rave tunes. After hours of enchanting mixes and sets in his Rádio Quântica Show “Em Jejum”, Varela will finally get in an Azorean stage and share a ton of love with us.

    “Discos na Tela”

    Inspired by early MTV and a similar Portuguese tv show called “Top+”, the videoclip was a local hit in the Azores, even making it constant cast at the half time of local sports events. It really was an art form that during the 80s and 90s left a mark in the island cluster as much as Dr. Martens, duffys and the mythical Brito pastry shop.

    The Azorean videoclip will have the spotlight once again at Arco 8 on April the 7th for an hour of music, pop up commentaries, and some special, nostalgic moments.

    Take it or Leave it - Associação Chili Com Carne & Editora MMMNNNRRRG @ Arco 8

    It’s written in Marcos Farrajota’s (born 1973) biography he’s been making zines under the moniker Mesinha de Cabeceira since 1992 and built an editorial structure around it: the association Chili Com Carne and the unpronounceable MMMNNNRRRG. With both labels Farrojate have been printing and releasing comic books who often break rules, while breaking some other rules. But we do know dude likes his music and with every chance he gets in his comic strips he mentions bands, concerts, and records, so we decided to bring him over and draw Tremor’s rhythm. On April 8th TREMOR will have a zine made in loco and, who knows, a festival book later on. If you go by a dude with a drawing book, don’t get creeped out with it! He doesn’t hurt and is even quite the person to talk to. You can check for yourself at the presentation of “Take It or Leave It” exhibition opening.

    When options are often limited to two routes, either rock or electronic, some adventurers come forth to trace new possibilities in the musical map and define new tracks to explore. That actually is how 3rd Method came to be, a new way between rock and electronics, with some funky improv setting course into the unknown. The trio, from São Miguel, always play full improv live sets and at TREMOR we shall explore new realms of digital and organic possibilities together.

    K-X-P is a strange combination of factors: merging the darkest elements of their homecountry of Finland, with kraut progressions, techno vibes and a mixture of organic reverence to sound and a digital praying system. Despite all the fog around the band live performances, they always come as revolutionary agitators, exploding in every direction and becoming everything a party needs them to be. You can be whatever you want, and wear like whatever tribe you feel like you belong to, but there’s no way you can’t dance to K-X-P.

    An experimented DJ and someone used to the spolight, while spending most of his life avoiding it, Fitz knows the touring life like non other, and can throw a hell of party. Mixing all kinds of feeling-good goodness in his sets, he roams around the world from set to set just to make sure the place to be is where he is DJing. After his latest euro tour with Wooden Wisdom, Fitz returns to Portugal e knows as well as home to star in a party practically made for his wits on the turntables. You will dance the tango to psychedelic rock and enjoy it. We often have.

    More than a singer-songwriter set to explore lyric metrics and chord progressions, Coelho Radioactivo is an experimentalist artist and one of the main brains of weird sonic agitators Favela Discos, outfit he often uses to highlight his most adventurous side. The same side who undeniably touches his songbook, worked to a flawed perfection with textures and mutant sounds, often creating immersive ambients for both the listener and his music.

    Filipe Furtado @ ¾ Hostel

    Born and raised in Ponta Delgada, Filipe Furtado changed his birth town for Coimbra, a  student city in mainland Portugal, where the interest for both journalism and music got refueled. By studying jazz and exploring the passion-infusing world of Bossa Nova and Brazilian music, Filipe Furtado found his voice in the guitar. Now with a newfound courage and voice, he experiments on the guitar while bringing to a musical life some of his best poetry. And remember: the feverish rhythm of “batuques” flows within his songs and are considered a serious musical pandemic, having now tainted the volcanic and oceanic landscapes that used to be his starting point.

    Alexandra Drewchin is not just Eartheater, her multi-instrumentalist ethereal electronic moniker, but also an active member of New York-based Guardian Alien, a performer, and a visual artist. All of the above mention, though, inhabits her Eartheater output, where defiance comes in multimedia approaches and haunting sounds, where her beautiful voice found a place to be unique. Alexandra will bring her loop machines and wits to TREMOR, where the earth will no shake, but most likely be swollen whole in one of the most memorable moments of the festival.

    PMDS is a project defined between Berlin and Bristol with 4 hands of Lisbon and Ponta Delgada. From the meeting of Filipe Caetano (DJ FLIP, the man) with Pedro Sousa emerges a sound  drowning in industrial triphop and post rock, charged with ethereal and heavy atmospheres.  Dense basses, retro synthesizers, analog glitches and wiry vocalizations make instruments and machines meet on a non-conventional playground creating musical scenarios that will make you stray, hurt, fall, create. PMDS is an extra-sensorial and exploratory experience that breaks boundaries of harmony, noise and linear composition to create in space and true wall of sound.

    Rui Rofino and Clemente Almeida, the two active brains in We Sea, often state: first you create a thought, then you play the feeling, but you’re always weary of the weather. It’s with this local witty approach to music that the duo engage their self-dissing musical experience with the riské touch of pop music. Being from such a rich environment and culture, with such thriving fauna, both musicians stand as true chameleons but impossible to dissociate with the Azorean state of mind. For Tremor, Rofino takes the lead and invites a band of 4 to join hi.

    When Michael Rother, the NEU! man, found out about this hot trio playing in Berlin’s subway, he never grasped on how great they really were: powered just by the sheer energy of a small drum-guitar-keyboard, the German outfit outgrown what some thought to be limitations and set new genre limits for krautrock. Nowadays, Camera is the most humble and electrifying music powerplant, working mad rhythms into the psychedelic realms of guitar and synth playing. They’ve been working on a comeback, and we’ve been working on giving them a stage. Conditions are perfect for take off in TREMOR.

    Gonçalo Valério is from São Miguel, and from the top of his 17, he attends his last year of high school. The future may be one of an astronomer or a quantum physicist, or god knows hip hop can lead him to produce sound. We do not know. We know that Valério has had hip-hop onto his skin since he was 9 as a listener, rhyming articulator and music explorer. 2015 gave him a place at Monte Verde Festival, but in the present he writes "Um Simples Devaneio," still with no release date. His music is Boom Bap with old school fragrances and  we find in his "Humanidade" the manifesto to revitalize and value the hip hop culture in the Azores.

With crazy beats, african influences and an european touch of sarcasm, the duo always deliver the craziest sets and most colorful performances. It’s the Mouling Rouge of transvesti fox-trot dancing, just as tradition commands, without ever sounding traditional.

    Stone Dead @ Raiz Bar

    When rock became an ornament for pop structures, bands forgot about what really matters: being and sounding like a band, having the guitar gazing the bass lines, the bass all over the kick drum, the cymbals exploding with each riff — an electrifying communication cycle. Stone Dead are amongst the few who haven’t forgot how rock socks off and have been doing it with the same freshness of someone who travelled 50 years back. They heat the guitars up with some sweet fuzz, distort sound to engage in some serious headbanging, and hold us by the neck with engaging pop hooks. All hail Stone Dead, the devoted to bring rock back to life.

    Swift Triigga  @ Rua do Aljube

    SWIFT TRIIGA throws words into a precipice. He hails from Ponta Delgada and he’s our connection to SANDRO G, known as the father of Azorean hiphop with whom he regularly performs in the US. Beatmaker, ar-ti-cu-la-ted tongue and MC to the surface, SWIFT is addicted to  fit the flow into a beat because it’s in hiphop he finds the oxygen to face the hardships of the days. For him, hiphop is a means to overcome, motivate and leave behind what belongs to the past. Seeing him live is facing one of the most prolific voices of Azorean hiphop to whom crossing a beat is the road to follow a dream.

    Manu Louis @ A Tasca

    Manu Louis is a uncanny case of geography being heard — or rather being transformed into sound a music. Belgian born, Berlin based, the multi-instrumentalist channels his heritage into what he calls Electronic Chanson, being Chanson the code word. Arranging every output with an unmistakable accent, Manu Louis builds an intricate set of layered sounds with electrifying effects, and sings his heart out over it, creating some serious party tunes. TREMOR will behold the return of Chanson in its most futuristic, sci-fi form.

    Fred Cabral  @ Rua do Aljube

    Fred Cabral hails from Ponta Delgada. He entered hip hop through Grafitti and rap. Firstly a tagger, he then found in rhymes his means to write about life. “La Revolucion” and “Somos Um Só” are 2 of his mixtapes which include internet anthem “Guerreiro Insular”, filmed in a desolate mythical and abandoned Monte Palace hotel. He’s perfomed both in the Islands of Terceira and São Miguel, but it is the internet that holds for him a cult of followers pulled by his power of delivery in denouncing what should not be said.

    Drinks @ Ateneu comercial

    Drinks are the way to seal a deal, and the deal here is between talented musicians such as Cate Le Bon and White Fence’s Tim Presley, who merged their wits on songwriting for this sunny, cheerful duo. They output candid pop tunes, with sweet hooks that you just can’t stop having, and to which you just want to keep listening to. It’s music for the heart, and to get the moods up, a definite toast to happiness that’ll make you feel it, song after song. Just like a good set of Drinks.

    Yves Tumor
    Yves Tumor @ Raiz Bar

    Existing in a weird pop hallucination, where each song lives in the same structure but gets this sickening, glittery electronic treatment, Yves Tumor comes forth as both familiar and distant. His music is as pop as it gets, but remains true to the artist’s persona, thriving in heavily modulated voices and out of the box arrangements. Tumor’s aura got crystallized in the beautiful rendition of “The Feeling When You Walk Away”, but finds life in the whole of his debut full-length, “Serpent Music”, a hypnotizing record and one of the best efforts of 2016.

    The Quiet Bottom  @ Cantinho dos anjos

    The Quiet Bottom started as a solo project for Azorean João Melo, but soon grown to something else, something bigger. After crossing paths with Marcos Falcão, the outfit grew into a quintet always looking for news solutions for the tough limitations of rock and pop, drawing alternate versions of its possibilities. Over the last couple of years, the band as been working on new music and TREMOR will hold its awaited debut.

    Silicon Seeds  @ Casa da Rosa

    Despite not being from the Azores, there’s no way to deny the link between the cluster of islands and Silicon Seeds, a rock trio with two born and raised Azoreans and a drummer from Barreiro. Based in Lisbon, the band outputs some stoner rock with a touch of blues, and jams like a power trio ought to, always with some desert psychedelia propelling them into deep space.

    Beak> @ Coliseu Micaelense

    If we just face Geoff Barrow as the leading pulse of Portishead, we’re reducing him and detracting him of his full and real potential — thence the need to rewind and replay with a new viewpoint, fueled by his newest mechanical kraut output, formed in collaboration with Billy Fuller and Will Young. BEAK> have assumed and transformed krautrock as something more than the genre-boundaries have set it to be, bringing it back to life in 2017 and with an unmistakable touch. Weirdly familiar, the trio’s rock gets diluted in detailed electronic renderings where groove acts as the active compound for hallucinations controlled in insonorized textures. BEAK> will bring their latest “Couple in a Hole” soundtrack to retransform the subterranean realms of TREMOR.

    Morbid Death
    Morbid Death  @ antiga Garagem Varela

    Morbid Death are part of the first of metal acts born in Portugal — a wave that brought to us heaviness from thrash to black and cult acts for each and every genre associated with the scene. The outfit from São Miguel inscribe themselves in the second group, where longevity marks the undeniable value of their three records and a career spanning over 25 years. When still young, the group shredded riffs with a thrash urgency, overcame by their melodic wits in death metal and gothic approach. Now, more than ever, Morbid Death still sound coin a pitch black fashion of heavy rocking tunes.

    Mão Morta @ Coliseu Micaelense

    Years go by and Mão Morta remain Mão Morta. The process of evolution of the seminal Braga collective continues to have the life of organisms that break down skin, muscle and tendons. They sound so unmistakably like themselves and at the same time, break the borders they’ve defined for themselves and which, ironically, they have never respected. Mão Morta is a band that does not require auditory presentations, but which continues to surprise with each new attempt, in a discography that extends with more than 10 long-lasting records edited since the end of the 80’s. Their debut in São Miguel will shake TREMOR - finally, we say.

    Flamingods @ antiga Garagem Varela

    Flamingods hail from the city of London that hosted them, and not even the Brexit shakes their unique joy of being one of the millions of voices of an ancient diaspora - in its music, one finds Africa, Asia and all the spaces of tension between these two Ancestral continents, in a creation that is unique to them but owes to all the giants that define the horizon of world music. The result is a pop explosion of intense aromas and flavors. Listen to "Majesty", the set of songs they’ ll bring to São Miguel.

    Bonga @ Coliseu Micaelense

    Bonga is no longer a name you can pronounce without weighting in its importance in the recent history of music. We’re talking about José Adelino Barceló de Carvalho, the one who took Semba from its birthland of Angola to the world, who made portuguese sound even hotter, and who made music from the tropics glamourous. Bonga’s been doing it for longer than all of us can remember, and he’s still nailing it. His new record, released in late 2016, is still proof of his undeniable value, and his concerts will always be a transformation of pure joy to behold. Get ready, TREMOR, it’s going to shake heavily.

    La Flama Blanca is more than a DJ, he’s a performer, an artist and our favourite character to watch on stage behind turntables: from cumbia to reggaeton, he presents South American music in its most happy and enjoyable state, while representing a South American act of lover-boy meets alpha male meets perfect XXI century gentleman. We dare to avoid looking at his beautiful moustache or to not have the time of your life during his set. We double dare you.

    Violet and Photonz are arguably the most prominent ambassadors of Portuguese electronic outputs in later years. Based in London, they made a name for themselves by mixing since the early 2000s, and recently founded Rádio Quântica, a nonstop online radio dedicated to electronic music from every sector. Being experienced DJs on the turntables, Violet and Photonz are the best duo to span TREMORs party a little longer and salute the rising sun at the very end.
