, This Morning brand new releases on the
Berlin sister labels Staubgold and quecksilber. By Rafael Toral from Portugal and Reuber from
Firstly however the CD Space by Rafael Toral on the Staubgold label from last year. Rafael Toral is part of the growing and expanding electronic and experimental music scene in the very traditional Fadu

land of
Portugal. Rafael Toral is a musician and sound engineer also active in visual arts. Born in
Lisbon, Portugal in 1967, he has been performing live since 1984

Having attempted to study music, he realized his path was one of exploration and discovery, to which conventional music teaching was irrelevant. Considered by the Chicago Reader to be “one of the most gifted and innovative guitarists of the decade”, his work focuses mainly on the possibilities of ambient music (variable attention listening process), the electric guitar as a sound generator and improvisation with higher levels of risk (using instruments or systems that behave in unpredictable ways). Exploring relations between sound phenomena such as resonance or difference tones and the human capacity for creative listening, Toral has developed a sound world weaving a unique blend of references such as ambient, rock, chance and improvisationToral performed extensively throughout Europe, Japan and North America, mostly solo but having as well collaborated with Sei Miguel, Phill Niblock, Rhys Chatham, John Zorn, Thurston Moore, Dean Roberts, Christian Fennesz, John Tilbury and Jim O’Rourke. The Sound Systems he has developed include glove controlled computer sinewaves on the new CD,
