Episode 57 of The Ambient Vault podcast features special guest Ricardo Peixoto.
“I’ve been making music, on and off, for 25+ years and started/joined a few projects throughout those years either as a musician or as a video artist.
But only recently, and mostly since the pandemic hit, started making music by myself (and for myself as well) and enjoying this whole process of discovery and experimentation. I enjoy harmony and melody, not happy, not sad, somewhere in between. I also use found sounds, field recordings and I'm an avid fan of noises, glitches and controlled randomness. I like the idea of being more of a curator than a musician/performer and being surprised with what comes out with the constraints I set. Closer to the feeling of being surprised with new music rather than consciously creating it. Most of what I create is either generative, improvised or a mixture of both.
Modular is the main instrument, but tape, mostly reel-to-reel recorders, is also a part of the process, by recording and randomly cutting loops and using them as a base to explore from.” - Ricardo Peixoto
