why we love this

Bright synths and suave grooves cobble together a path for bleeps and bops to navigate the way. As the album progresses, the atmosphere becomes more subdued, with sonic schisms and dense rhythms creating boulder-like obstacles on the trail. The landscape is haunted by processed vocals that offer subliminal artifacts of memory that collide with—or perhaps come to terms with—the present.

about the record

In an unusual collaboration between a Brazilian artist and a Chinese label, Numa Gama presents a left-field take on her music-making, A Spectral Turn. Inspired by Derrida’s Hauntology, and the post-capitalist instigations of Anna Tsing, she weaves an eerie and cold subtropical soundscape that explores themes of freedom and imagination amidst the ghosts that inhabit today’s world.

Each track here unfolds like a vignette, as translucent synth lines float independently, accompanied by abstract sounds and glitches. This amalgamation creates a rational yet cozy stream of consciousness, guiding the listener through the haunted corridors of the memories of the past, ideas of the present, and miscarriages of the future. To summon these ideas, Numa Gama draws a parallel between negotiating political change and making kin with her own creative desires.

Rather than providing nostalgic sensations or futuristic insights, A Spectral Turn acknowledges that history ends at every moment, and gives way to new beginnings, swarming with ghosts.
