The theme of this album is something that I couldn’t escape since it takes up so much time of thinking. the songs were written with this theme as an anchor, although some are of opposite spectra of (my) understanding. I recorded the demos at home, where they evolved and decorated them with arrangements. Sheep Studios, in Sintra “, in the words of João Granola.
Interestingly, contrary to what we might think, João Granola’s inspiration for “Os moderados“, or even for all his music, does not come only from music.
