Live at Vila Nova de Foz Coa, May 29th 1999

From Touch Radio - "Performed in a garden at the top of a hill in Foz Côa, at the remote northeast of Portugal. Overlooking the valley and the far slope of the opposite hill, at dusk, Peter Rehberg, Christian Fennesz (computers) and Rafael Toral (modular synth) played as João Paulo Feliciano mixed live into a sound-modulated light generating cube. The scale of the cube, the throbbing, rich colors emanating from it and the electronics setting gave the event an otherwordly feel, pretty much as if an alien spaceship had landed there."

I realize it won't be everyone's cup o' tea, but for me, this is a beautiful piece of audio art.
