“Gatuno EImigrante & Pai de Família” is a celebration of a productive, consequent, articulate and eloquent anger, and the power it has to instigate motion in communal social environments.
This conceptual audiovisual piece emerges from a universe that indulges the distinction between anger and bitterness. Delivering explosive, emotional, and many a time cryptic texts in the lyrics.
The album propose an attack of two distinct realms: the social abstraction we might be forced into due to social realities and the intangible limitless capacity of the mind to create utopian visions of possible ways in which we may deal with all that surrounds us!
These angry lyrics without ever being bitter; assertive declarations without ever being arrogant; not aggressive nor violent but for sure making the radical declaration of the need to recognise as crucial; the celebration of our individual limitations. This celebration is in fact an admission to our interdependency as individuals, and as nations.
We are remixers. We are thieves. And then there’s natural selection. We pick up where the last human has left it. We are in the business of making it our own. We are respectable thieves.
There’s piracy… downloading songs, films without paying artists and corporations for it; feel no guilt… There’s Wall Street…
