Rob Mazurek's Black Cube SP
Rob Mazurek's Black Cube SP
Rob Mazurek's newest ensemble, Black Cube SP, features his long standing São Paulo Underground trio with the addition of Thomas Rohrer. Rohrer earned his stripes as a master of the keening rabeca (Brazilian viola) through intense studies with the instrument’s leading practitioners in Brazil’s northeast. This quartet features Mazurek on cornet and electronics, Mauricio Takara on drums, electronics and cavaquinho (brazilian ukelele), Guilherme Granado on keyboard, synths, and sampler, and Thomas Rohrer on rabeca and soprano saxophone. The group released it's debut record, Return the Tides, on Cuneiform on Oct. 14, 2014. Return the Tides is a startlingly cathartic and magisterial post-tropicalia modern psychedelic spiritual that’s as riveting as it is ravishing. You can read more information and hear sound samples from Return the Tides at: http://www.cuneiformrecords.com/bandshtml/robmazurekoctet.html#tides.
São Paulo Underground
São Paulo Underground is one of Rob's longest standing ensembles. Founded in 2005, the ensemble has released four records. The most recent, Beija Flors Velho E Sujo, was released by Cuneiform in 2013. The Wire magazine describes São Paulo Underground as "post digital, post industrial psychedelia." Sound Color Vibration adds "tropicalia never sounded this modern and alive."
