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.
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.
