      RAFAEL TORAL SPACE COLLECTIVE 8 at Galeria Zé dos Bois, Lisbon 23.06.2012 Rafael Toral: "I'm very pleased and excited to bring you a new Space Collective project, named DOUBLES. Double groups that function as micro-orchestras, expanding over a series of 3 concerts, as a residency at ZDB Gallery in Lisbon. It starts off with two drummers and two electronics - the DOUBLE DUO, unfolding of the core electronics/ drums unit, in turn a heir of the "classic" saxophone/ drums duet in free jazz. It's not really a pair of duos, but more a duo of pairs. All the elements are complementary, in layers of depth and transparency. I've never done anything like this before, nor, to be honest, have i seen done." http://rafaeltoral.net SPACE COLLECTIVE 8 Rafael Toral: electronics Ricardo Webbens: electronics Afonso Simões: drums Marco Franco: drums Pedro Lourenço: bass Hernâni Faustino: double bass Sei Miguel: Pocket trumpet Pedro Sousa: baritone saxophone ABOUT: Rafael Toral plays experimental electronic instruments. Strongly interested in phrasing, he calls his style "post-free jazz electronic music", once described as "a brand of electronic music far more visceral and emotive than that of his cerebral peers". Toral's Space Program, while researching performance possibilities, delivers music that is full of clarity, articulating silence and sound in a thoughtful, yet physical way. Formerly known for his drone/ ambient work with guitar and electronics and acclaimed records such as Wave Field (1994) or Violence of Discovery and Calm of Acceptance (2000), he has radically renewed his approach to music, launching the jazz-inspired and alien-sounding Space Program in 2004. Toral's long time connection with Sei Miguel is central to the development of the Space Program. Other collaborations include Jim O'Rourke, Evan Parker, John Edwards, Joe Morris, Tatsuya Nakatani, Manuel Mota, Roger Turner, David Toop, Alvin Lucier, John Zorn, Phill Niblock, Christian Marclay, Sonic Youth, João Paulo Feliciano, Rhys Chatham, Lee Ranaldo, C Spencer Yeh, Trevor Tremaine, Dean Roberts... In 1998 he became a member of MIMEO electronic orchestra. Its other members are Keith Rowe, Thomas Lehn, Kaffe Matthews, Marcus Schmickler, Jérome Noetinger, Christian Fennesz, Peter Rehberg, Gert-Jan Prins, Cor Fuhler and Phil Durrant. Since 2008 he directs the Space Collective, a slowly developing orchestral group.

              SuperStereo DEMOnstration 2012 - 9 março Protótipo [432] / Rafael Toral / Chris & Cosey Rafael Toral Toca instrumentos eletrónicos experimentais. Interessa-se pelo fraseado e chama ao seu estilo "música eletrónica pós-free jazz", que já foi descrita como "um tipo de música eletrónica muito mais visceral e emotiva que a dos seus pares cerebrais". O inovador Space Program de Toral, uma longa pesquisa em possibilidades performativas, produz música musica cheia de clareza, articulando silêncio e som de um modo ponderado, mas envolvendo a fisicalidade do corpo. Space Collective 2 apresenta-se no SuperStereo DEMOnstration, um duo de eletrónica e bateria que conta com Afonso Simões (Gala Drop, Curia), um dos mais requisitados bateristas de pensamento livre de Lisboa
