Samsara (excerpt) by tiagosousa published on 2013-02-09T13:47:28Z An excerpt from the new album Samsara to be released march 2013 After Walden Pond’s Monk, released on Immune, Tiago Sousa is back with his first solo piano record: Samsara. An intricate record, built on a complex narrative that’s anchored on this oriental philosophical concept - a bold and emotive piece that stands through its carefully managed balance between opposites. Samsara is, for several oriental cultural manifestations, the repetitive and re-occurring cycle of life, death and rebirth; it stands for a continuous drift through the various modes of existence. For Tiago, then, Samsara works as a metaphor for the flux of human creativity and how it influences our perception of reality while at the same time positing new challenges and difficulties. Since his first release, in 2006, Tiago Sousa has been consistently developing his very own aesthetics; through his relatively large body of work, we can identify an artist on the search for his own expression and identity. Samsara follows two largely successful endeavors, both centered on the piano: Insónia and Walden Pond’s Monk. In between those and this new release, Tiago has been working in the original soundtrack for Portuguese short movie Bibliografia.
