WHΛLTHISИEY - Immediathism
WHΛLTHISИEY is Fernando Cerqueira from Lisbon, Portugal.
The music of Whalt Thisney is a solitary soundtrack to nowhere, a non-tourist map into the unknown; music and images to create new, fully immersive environments, an intriguing aural pilgrimage with no destination in time and space, nuances and labyrinths. Whalt Thisney selects and mixes music for the mind and body in the same quantities that emerges from encounters between the past and the present, drawing beauty of the commonplace, wiping, polishing it, giving it life again, so to produce the same effect of the original freshness and spontaneity, a mirror that transforms it absorbs and reflects.
Whalt Thisney mixes impressionist piano atmospheres, spoken wordcore, drone, experimental, library, hypnotic escapism music.
