With almost 12 years on the road in the national independent scene, it was never easy to define the sound of Porto Alegre’s from the Sensory Room. And it is not now that it will be. The power trio, known for combining technique, viscerality and a lot of creativity in its mixture of alternative rock, metal, psychedelia, jazz, grunge, art rock, punk (to name a few genres), is about to launch its first work of unpublished since the album Halteroniilismo (2014).

Formed by Bruno Vargas (bass), Carlos Ferreira (guitar and programming) and Martin Estevez (drums), the band has just announced the release of the album Escapista on the main streaming platforms from July 26th. And the announcement did not come alone: ​​you can see below, exclusively at NOIZE, the clip and the cover of the first single called “O Escapista” (attention to the article that differentiates the name of the song from the name of the album). Both the cover art of the single and the album, as well as the direction of the clip were the responsibility of the legendary multitask artist from Porto Alegre, Diego Medina. Bind in madness:

About the name, the guitarist Carlos Ferreira explains: – Some years ago I saw a documentary about [Harry] Houdini and, while watching, I found myself making a parallel between the performance escapism of illusionism and existential escapism, not so much as an escape reality, but more as a way of interpreting it from a fantastic and imaginative angle. At the same time, I composed this track thinking about putting it on a future solo album, but I ended up archiving it because I thought it did not dialogue with the sound creation processes that I was exploring and that culminated in Hibrido (2018). When we started pre-production rehearsals for the new album from Quarto Sensorial, I remembered it and thought it had everything to do with what we were proposing not only musically, but aesthetically as well. I showed it to the guys and then we rearranged everything. The concept of escapism, when applied to this new phase of the Fourth, led us to think about the idea of ​​non-belonging, about not wanting to fit into a model imposed horizontally. This record is about that. It is another chapter on the old struggle of the individual who does not find his place in a certain collective context.

For the time being, previous albums from Quarto Sensorial are only available on BandCamp for free download / streaming on the “name your price” system (pay as much as you want). From the 26th, with the release of Escapista on Spotify, Deezer, Apple Music, Youtube Music, Shazam, etc. by Tratore, the other discs will also be made available on these services. In addition to releasing the new record, on the same date the band also performs its release show at Agulha, in Porto Alegre.

A + B

“Consenso Sensorial: Quem acompanha música em escala industrial sabe que músicos de verdade, criando canções de verdade, estão entrando em extinção”. Por isso, quando aparece um disco como A + B, do trio instrumental porto-alegrense Quarto Sensorial, é impossível segurar a baba. E, confesso as lágrimas. A + B saiu agora, na finaleira do ano, para bagunçar as listas de melhores de qualquer coisa. São sete faixas que colocam o ouvinte a explorar planícies sonoras em diferentes velocidades, ritmos e texturas. E a cada audição a viagem muda: descobre-se um novo riff, uma levada diferente, um instrumento escondido sob as camadas de improvisos. “Ouça a faixa ‘Voo Livre’, por exemplo, e tente segurar os miolos dentro da cabeça.” – Gustavo Brigatti (Jornal Zero Hora/Segundo Caderno – 06/12/12)

“…a música da Quarto Sensorial é metamórfica, imprevisível e maravilhosa justamente por não ser apenas obra de gente, mas da natureza impetuosa e complexa da gente.” – Eduardo von Peters (Blog Província Sonora – 11/11/12)

“…killing bass lines, guitars that don’t want to spit out Blues clichés and a drummer that fills every blank space with intelligence. Wrap everything with music, not a simple show off and you have Quarto Sensorial, one of the finest bands that came from Brazilian lands.” – Diego Camargo (ProgShine.net / JazzMusicArchives.com)
