Rafael Toral
Wave Field

Rafael Toral’s classic ambient record Wave Field gets a reissue courtesy of Drag City. Originally released in 1995 via a bunch of labels (Jim O’Rourke’s dexter’s cigar handled it in the U.S.), Wave Field must have been a breath of fresh air when compared to all the six-string angst around at the time. These lovely, serene guitar-scapes are reminiscent of Fripp, Eno and Cage.

Sound Mind Sound Body

Early work from Portuguese sound-worker Rafael Toral. Sound Mind Sound Body is composed almost entirely out of guitar sounds, though the processes Toral has used in the devising and processing of the work have smoothed out the instrument almost completely, into a rich, ever-stretching plane of ambient drone. This is a reissue of the 1999 edition of this album.

Moon Field

Highly skilled and storied Portugese sound artist Rafael Toral makes a welcome appearance on Lawrence English’s Room40 label. The sound field Toral employs on this latest album is stark and clinical, but the tones vibrating within are etched deep with studious character, whether it’s a measured guitar drone or a clipped sax ramble.
