Maximiliano Chami: "Neste disco chapante e alucinado George Christian prova que é herdeiro da linhagem oculta da música nordestina dos anos 70, misturando estas referências com noise brutalmente orgânico. Nota-se ecos de artistas como Marconi Notaro, Ave Sangria, Lula Côrtes, fundidos com texturas sonoras ultra psicodélicas e muito barulhentas formando esse caleidoscópico álbum chamado "Desvãos Do Sol". Uive quem souber absorver estes estranhos extratos."
This is a compendium of almost-songs and instrumental pieces. It reflects some of my existential path while travelling to the countryside of Ceará, and also some bitterness and disappointments I've had since then. (The photos here were taken while travelling there.) But, after all, this is an album about spiritual searching for rebirth and identity, towards a new configuration of life to live, in-between rural and urban sounds and experiences.
There are two live tracks: a soundtrack I've made for a short film called "Skyscraper Symphony" by Robert Florey, made in 1928 (the performance was filmed by Caio Araújo, and you may watch it here): www.youtube.com/watch?v=74wIJhTutxs; also "Lavras", which was recorded at the Music School of UFBA for the event Germina.Ccíones - Primaveras Latinoamericanas.

My name is George Christian, I was born in August 10th, 1981, at the city of Salvador, capital of Bahia, in Brazil. I'm a
self-taught composer and a guitarrist with more than 10 years of experience. My essential aim in Music is to develop a compositional approach that encompasses not only popular but also the classical fields in an equanimity, and creates a synthesized universe of its own....more
