about

Söll is Jorge Pandeirada, musician and composer from Portugal. Interested in the concepts of randomness and what many regard as musical error. Pandeirada has a degree in Music Production and Electronic Music at ESART, and right now he's a master student in Sound Design at FEUP.

This album is Söll's debut in electronic music, a field which he ingeniously explores. In doing so he produces a sound that is rich, detailed, fine-grained, hypnotizing and well, timeless.

Listening to Cävv is like listening to the perfect soundtrack to an abstruse story, slowly unfolding. Like gliding into in the dreamworld of an abstract creature living in darkness, oblivious to light. Like probing the most placid moment of something monstrous. Like a deep reflection of consciousness.

All in all this album is an immersive experience, reinforced by the artwork with fascinating photography by Jorge Pandeirada's father.

Please note: the release date is June 10, but the production of the CD is slightly delayed and ships out on June 27.

Review by nt in Gonzo Circus magazine:
Cuarto is het soloproject van de uit Barcelona afkomstige en tegenwoordig in Londen werkende Max Feriche. Op 'Segundas Partes' heeft hij middels een soort stijloefening een zevental warme en rijke geluidscollages ontworpen, waarbij de met aandacht luisterende toehoorder vrijwel steeds nieuwe details kan ontdekken. Het componeren, opnemen en mixen van ieder nummer is vrijwel gelijktijdig gedaan, waardoor het geheel een zeer organische sfeer heeft. Vage kleine geluidjes, gesproken en gezongen teksten, samples, een veelvoud aan instrumenten - het is moeilijk te duiden wat er precies allemaal gebeurt op deze plaat. "Only from a dream you can wake to the light!" Zeer sympathiek album dat zowel gratis als betaald via Bandcamp te verkrijgen is.

Het label Esc.rec. komt gelijk met nog een release. Achter de naam Söll gaat de Portugese muzikant en componist Jorge Pandeirada schuil. Pandeirada heeft elektronische muziek gestudeerd aan de Escola Superior de Artes Aplicadas in Portugal en volgt op dit moment nog een masteropleiding Sound Design. Het is daarom ook niet verwonderlijk dat er een academische aanpak in zijn muziek doorklinkt. 'Cävv' is het debuut van de Portugees in de wereld van de elektronische muziek en zeker niet onverdienstelijk. De verschillende nummers vormen een geheel van losse paragrafen die tezamen een verhaal vormen met veel gaten erin, maar met voldoende samenhang om deze zelf in te vullen. De klanken doen erg denken aan de soundtrack van een creepy 2D-videogame in de trant van Limbo of de mobiele applicatie PolyFauna van Radiohead. Het gevoel dat 'Cävv' oproept is unheimisch, onzeker, verkennend. Een droom, waarbij het nooit zeker is of hij is opgehouden of niet. De zeven nummers duren bij elkaar net iets meer dan een half uur, maar in die dertig minuten verstrijkt er een complete tijdloosheid waarin zeer uiteenlopende geluiden de toon bepalen. Insecten en diertjes, zachte machinale krassen, het splijten van atomen. Wat ons betreft is het nummer 'Märr' het hoogtepunt, waarin we ons wanen in ons eigen licht snurkend brein, kijkend naar de neuronen die heen en weer schieten. Maar ook afsluiter 'Örno' is erg fijn, met de plots opkomende en opbeurende gitaartonen. Het prachtig vormgegeven hoesje met foto's van Jorge Dos Santos Pandeirada, de vader van, is het vermelden waard.

Twee mooie uitgaves van Esc.rec.

Review in Vital Weekly by FdW:
Esc.rec from Deventer, The Netherlands, releases mostly in the digital domain, and have build up a fine catalogue (worth checking out if you are not afraid of music that you can only download and doesn't have a physical form), but sometimes it also takes the shape of a disc. Here we have Söll, also known as Jorge Pandeirada, from Portugal and who's interest lies in the concept of 'randomness and what many regard as musical error'. I must admit it's not something I hear in his music. He has seven pieces here and it spans some thirty-three minutes and it all seems to have been made with the computer. If anything I would say this is made using a variety of plug-ins or max/msp/pure data patches chewing away on an endless amount of field recording on the input side. Music that reminds me of all those things that were so hip years and years ago; when 'microsound' was a term to identify all that music made with laptops and field recordings on the input side. Perhaps there is an element of randomness in here, but it seems to be lost inside those strung-out lengthy fields of sound. Drones that in their melted from make up some fine ambient music. Quite dreamy stuff, very warm and yet, surprisingly, all made with the computer. 'Warm glitch music' is what I used to write about releases like this. Having said, I think this is not all bad; it's not original but it's not bad. There is some very sturdy processing going on in here and Söll pushes all the right buttons to create these. I'd say it's a bit early for a revival for this kind of music, but who knows someday this will be mentioned as one of early revivalists.

Review in De Subjectivisten by Jan Willem Broek:
Söll is het project van de Portugese, muzikaal geschoolde artiest Jorge Pandeirada. Hij heeft echter geen voorkeur voor de meer gangbare muziek, maar is veeleer geïnteresseerd in de willekeur van geluid, hetgeen anderen nog wel eens als muzikale fout bestempelen. Maar deze vrije gedachten achter het geluid maken zijn abstracte elektro-akoestische muziek juist zo interessant en avontuurlijk. Zijn cd Cävv, gestoken in een waanzinnig mooie, zes panelen tellende uitklapbare hoes, is nu uitgebracht op het avontuurlijke, prestigieuze label Esc.rec uit Deventer. Hij brengt 7 tracks met een totale lengte van ruim 32 minuten, die elke seconde weten te verrassen met bijzondere vondsten en combinaties. Er is ook niet echt een vinger op te leggen. De muziek dient zich aan als een soort rauwe ambient, maar bevat net zo goed veldopnames, postrockelementen, drones, avant-gardistische ingrediënten en neoklassiek. Alleen worden die niet in hapklare brokken opgediend, maar als spannende, naar eigen inzicht te verwerken tot de verbeelding sprekende stukken. Het is zowel meeslepend en intrigerend als van een diepgravende schoonheid. Een muzikaal verhaal, dat zich ontvouwt als een goed geregisseerde thriller. Ergens tussen het denkbeeldige grensgebied van Klangwart, Norn, Arvo Pärt, Jorge Reyes, Labradford, Deathprod en Beaumont Hannant zit de eigengereide prachtmuziek van Söll.

Review in Ambientblog.net by Peter van Cooten:
There is not a single word without a diacritic trema on this album by Söll – alias of Jorge Pandeirada from Portugal. This adventurous debut is released on the dutch Esc.Rec. label – a label that specializes in releasing music that defies any categorisation. With a degree in Music Production and Electronic Music, and now studying for a master in Sound Design, Pandeirada sure knows how to create some fascinating detailed (‘fine-grained’) sound sculptures. “Listening to Cävv is like listening to the perfect soundtrack to an abstruse story, slowly unfolding. Like gliding into in the dreamworld of an abstract creature living in darkness, oblivious to light. Like probing the most placid moment of something monstrous. Like a deep reflection of consciousness.”

Review in Yeah I Know It Sucks by KN:
"Sometimes listening to music is not so much like listening to music at all. For example, listening to Cävv by Söll is like the floor of the normal reality being nicely removed straight from under our feet. It is removing the possible bright side of life and making way to spiral kindly into a exciting bleakness of no future.

It’s not like the earth has opened up to swallow its listening audience into the volcanic inner cracks, as there is no sign of panic, reasons to scream or being in pain… But still the listening session has something that makes us question if all that we believed in as touchable things is actually real. Hope for a positive ending of it all had gone down the drain, but instead of being sad about it, this place here gives it a meaning of acceptance and relatable beauty.

With Cävv its about pleasantly giving up the control, to see your surroundings morph into somewhere else than your usual habitat with endless possibilities. Things happen here, it’s not a dark pit or a black hole – but something that evolves lucid mathematic rhythm and highly warming melodic mesmerising content that with each chapter seems to take a different approach, as if you slide through complex different layers of another visual world in which no sunshine prevails. One in which no humans are to screw things up, but enormous emo moods are making up the premises of what your eyes will make the brain believe.

I do feel that the layers have a deep gloomy vibe over it, it is clear that it is more a inwards journey into the ground than one rising up towards a bright big sky for a better future. It is like the emotional dread unrolls itself as a established comfortable world of its own, one to sink and hide away in and feel accepted in a feeling of loss. It is gaining a contempt feeling of emotional doom and that this feeling is pretty charming and pleasant in all its own ways. We aren’t even scared when the earthly demons appear to mumble their ancient underground language into our ears as some how we sank so low in beautiful misery that these voices are more of a welcoming parent who wishes us home, than a devious nightmarish creature that will let us dance in the flames for an eternity.

Here among dread we are safe, welcome and far away removed from those harmful rays of sunlight and cheerful others. If this isn’t the outer world that real emos go after they pass away, than what else could be their designated beautiful heaven of sadness?"
