As if this presentation were not enough, the feelings of a youth without prospects beyond a bureaucratic work to support a "traditional family" don’t seem to demonstrate the tranquility that is passed in a first hearing of this work, nevertheless, the saddest melodies always were accompanied by a unique beauty - in the absence of a better adjective. I remember once hearing the following words from my first music teacher: "If you want to be a real artist, go live". Life is a great source of inspiration! And it was with it that Ferla created this magnificent "minimalist" work.
Using sounds recorded sporadically between 2010 and 2015, treating them computationally to give artistic cohesion across all tracks, this work does exactly what the title suggests: 'Filmes adolescentes’ (Teen Movies, in english) or the images that the artist has experienced being translated into pure affective communication. A rare example of artistic sincerity, without fear of bringing happy, sad or just neutral memories that accompany several people during the so-called teenage period.
When you translate the track names, it get much easier to realize this: 'Just After Eve'; 'Autumn Out of Season'; 'I saw you in the Capital'; 'Alone with the Last Stars'; 'Puberty between Orchids'; 'The Neighbors' Pool'; 'An Affordable Skull'; 'Captive of a Dress'; 'Red Lagoon, 1958'; 'Here, Always Here'. Listen carefully, on a cold winter night. If you take emotioned with the two last tracks, it's because Ferla wasn’t afraid to use extremely personal memories as material for his music. This is a really great job that would make Richard Linklater feel a little bit envious...
