I hear what I Saw - 2019 The debut album translates the aesthetic line of cinematographic textures that the imagination of SM reproduces.
The inspiration originates from live improvisations, glitchy and overdubs late night tales and unusual encounters. The background of each musician extrapolates the abstract rhythmic sense where the aroma of jazz is felt in each beat. Synaesthetic Magic is formed by musicians with more than two decades of experience, integrating other formations such as Supernada, Jimmy Pi, Mão Morta, GNR, OliveTree Dance. SM travels the world and decontextualize native musical genres merging ethnic acoustic instruments with electronic ambient vibes. The album guides us to a new era journey while experiencing a retro style in a futuristic setting.
