Dedicated to Marco Miranda Grandfather, Luís Tomás Pinheiro.
Tradition embraces modernity in a relationship as promiscuous as it is fruitful and truly interesting. M-PeX is a project that allies the Portuguese Guitar to electronic music, and dares to explore musical landscapes never visited before.
A bold experiment that sets a test for our ears, that dares to break down clichés and which proves that traditional music can also be modern, or vice-versa. Imagine the crystalline sound of a Portuguese Guitar. Imagine a laptop knocking out electronic rhythms. M-PeX is just that, electronic music with Portuguese Guitar. Or maybe it's Portuguese Guitar with electronics.
