about

Malva

Malva is a contrapuntal tribute to the eighties aesthetic, goth and synthpop, as well as to Francis Bacon's triptychs and Hitchcock's 'The Birds'. If the album could speak, it would say that "the 80's are a preview of the 10's," and that "the Goth is just beginning." It is composed almost entirely on the Bohlen-Pierce scale, which has no octaves and only uses odd harmonics.

Löis Lancaster

Founder / composer of the progressive rock band Turangalîla, the "Gentle Giant of Tijuca" in 1990. Released the cassette of his first solo album, 'Thing in Chest of Drawers', in 1996. Completed the albums 20 bus K in 2006 (whose songs were played live by Grupo Século) and Café sobre Tela in 2010 (with lyrics in Finnish, Russian, Japanese, Spanish and French).

As a singer of Zumbi do Mato - a carioca band of the 90's - he performed in several establishments which are already part of the city's cultural resistance history, such as Garage Art Cult of Flag Square. He composed almost all the songs of the band, along with Zé Felipe and others.

From 2010 to nowadays, Löis began to compose in different tunings, known as microtonals, that create solutions outside the traditional harmonic spectrum.1st place in the international composing prize of Untwelve.Org (2015/2016), dedicated to xenarmonic music, with the track "Sintonia do Occidente".
