After São Mateus não é um lugar assim tão longe (2009) and Bahia Fantastica (2012), Rodrigo Campos returns with Conversas com Toshiro, a trip shaped like daydreaming in the imaginary Japan of the author, composer and musician.
Limited and numbered edition of 300 copies on
double LP in a screen printed new cover model!
São Mateus, Bahia, Japan, in Rodrigo Campos repertoire, geography plays a different role, as a sort of imaginary map that always gives the same place, with variations of layers, shapes and colors. Rodrigo takes us to a new land, displaced of time and space without resorting to documentary elements or geographical experience to build his work, he follows an abstract and subjective map that investigates unlived impressions and memories.
With this exercise to move away to get closer, Rodrigo begins to deconstruct his own notion of space. After reinventing for himself his own Bahia, the composer takes us on her new album, Conversas com Toshiro (2015), to a Japan that is not so far neither.
What is Rodrigo’s Japan? The Japan of the image. The cinematographic Japan to Western eyes.
By inventing again a personal geography, we convince ourselves that Rodrigo Campos is a nomad in the middle of São Paulo, the cosmopolitan city that can be every place or any. Rodrigo just inhabits his own body and maps the world from the human experiences of his characters.
