about

Cuarto is a solo project that fuses acoustic instrumentation with computer processing and sampling. Cuarto (Max Feriche) is from Barcelona, but recently moved to London, where he composed, recorded, mixed and mastered 'Segundas Partes'.

The composition, recording, editing and mixing of each song has been almost simultaneous, making it difficult to tell where one thing begins and the other one ends. The album has a warm, intricate and rich collage sound, occasionally slightly reminiscent of The Books in their early years.

'Segundas Partes' means 'second parts' or 'sequels'. Cuarto's first work was released on Bestiar, a netlabel from Barcelona. Bestiar also co-releases Segundas Partes.

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.

Review in Netmusic Life by Drizzi:
Favoloso gioco di ritagli e incastri, tra spezzoni di film, malinconici arpeggi di chitarra e ritmiche electro-latin. Dopo l'anteprima del delizioso video di "Los Nunca Necesarios Pliegues", ecco arrivare il nuovo album di Cuarto (Max Feriche). E la breve aspettativa non viene per niente delusa. Un suono moderno, pieno, decontestualizzante. Un Di Bos in versione spagnola, meno sperimentale e più solare o una versione di el sueño de la casa propia più acustica e melodica. Riferimenti sconosciuti improvvisati in alternativa ai "soliti" The Books. Un uso dell'elettronica responsabile, dosata magistralmente in modo da lasciare un buon sapore acustico in bocca, abilmente rilasciato dalle ipnotiche chitarre di Max Feriche. Un album che si accompagna bene per le imminenti serate estive, sdraiati in un prato a contemplare le stelle e a chiedersi per l'ennesima volta perchè. Altra piccola perla donata dall'olandese Esc.rec. in copia con Bestiar.
