Luís Fernandes' artistic activity (Braga, 1981) has been marked by the multiplicity of approaches and formats, divided into collective projects, occasional collaborations and individual work; by performative, compositional and expository activity; and by establishing relationships with different disciplinary fields.
He is a founding member of the band Peixe: Aero and a member of the collective La La La Resonance.
Since 2014, he has maintained a prolific duo with pianist Joana Gama, with whom he collaborated with Ricardo Jacinto, José Alberto Gomes, Drumming GP, Metropolitan Orchestra and Guimarães’s Orchestra. Additionally, his career has been marked by encounters with a wide range of artists, including Hans-Joachim Roedelius/Qluster, Black Bombay, Rhys Chatham, Pierce Warnecke, André Gonçalves, Lloyd Cole, Rodrigo Leão, Sensible Soccers, Victor Hugo Pontes, Nuno M. Cardoso, João Pedro Rodrigues / João Rui Guerra da Mata or Salomé Lamas.
The year 2019 added a new dimension to his individual activity, with the release of “Demora” (Room40) and “Seis Peças Sintetizadas” (Holuzam), albums he signed, for the first time, in his own name. It is from this body of work that a new stage is proposed.
A new album, “A guide to getting lost”, to be edited by Revolve; and the exploration of electronics in real time as a starting point for a set of shows, in which Fernandes will weave particular compositions at the moment, walking a fine line between the possibility of error and the wonder of discovery.
