Premiere: Dúo del Sol – Never the Same River Twice

a3620970846_10

This is something really unusual for Invisible Guy. I got a mail from Dúo del Sol, which is a classically trained duo consisting of Tom Farrell (Guitar) and Javier Orman (Violin). I must admit, I didn’t really see myself delving into the sphere of classical music, even though I like it. Anyway, these two gentlemen have a history of playing classical music after college, touring around the USA and winning awards for that. However, they felt like something was missing and Dúo del Sol, according to themselves – set them free of those bonds and added the thing that was missing. Instead of being locked into that dome, they broke free and set improvisation and creativity in the first room. LA Weekly have called them “avant-sonic acrobats“. Another thing that needs to be added, is that this particular album came out after an overwhelmingly successful Kickstarter-campaign. Without any words used, this first release; “hello Kaleidoscope” symbolizes just what they were missing earlier. It is a mixture of raw talent, being channeled into an open landscape of sound, breaking free from every little constraint and barrier that can or could be found. Over here at Invisible Guy, we were offered to premiere a track from their album. It’s a track that wasn’t meant to be on the record at first, but they included it anyway. The track is titled “Never the Same River Twice” and you can read for yourselves about the process behind it, from the band themselves:

“This is a track that almost didn’t make it. When we first started writing it, we were excited about the moods and harmonies, but soon after that we were stuck. One day we gave it space, made the phrases longer, let it breathe. And it came to life.

Now it’s one of our favorite songs to play (we use a loop station for performances, but recorded all the tracks separately at the studio for this album).”
