André Matos / Joí£o Guimarí£es / At a Distance – Concert

The Arte Institute has the pleasure to invite you to a concert by André Matos/ João Guimarães and the band At a Distance. This concert will mark the end of the 3 month long Summer Nights Series 2011 – Cinema, Music and Arts.

André Matos/ João Guimarães

The distance between modern post-bop sounds and free jazz suffused with high-tech experimentalism narrows significantly on the 2010 album Quare from André Matos, guitarist and Portuguese native now living in New York. Released on Inner Circle Music, Quare is Matos’s third album as a leader, and it features his spectral playing in various musical settings with accompaniment from some of the top young jazz artists on the scene today.

Matos has been performing and recording with Sara Serpa, Greg Osby, Thomas Morgan, Noah Preminger, George Garzone, Mikado Lab and João Lencastre among many other artists.

At Summer Nights Series – Music, Matos teams up with long time collaborator, Portuguese saxophonist João Guimarães. This duo focus on open improvisation and original compositions, which derive from the unique combination of both musicians ´ diverse influences.

At a Distance

After the huge success of At a Distance concert at Summer Nights Series – Music, August 19…Arte Institute brings them back!

At a Distance is a local band from Newark, NJ.  The influences and style of the trio ranges from darkwave, triphop, industrial, rock, and indie electro.

Such influences range from The Cure, Nine Inch Nails, Portishead, Tool, Depeche Mode, and many others.  The band was started in the summer of 2010 and since then has played at different venues in New York City, and New Jersey.

Damaris Rivera has now joined the band as their lead singer/lyricist bringing with her a flair and style all of her own.  The band has an EP out on iTunes (and other online stores) titled Painting the Rust, featuring Kelly A. Pinho on vocals.

At a Distance made the original soundtrack of the movie “Broken Clouds” directed by Yuri Alves (NY Portuguese Short Film Festival 2011, Official Selection).

They are currently working on all new material and plan on putting out another EP by late autumn.
