GRAN MASA // IRCD01
Iluso Records are proud to present Gran Masa, an avant-garde, heavy hitting, experimental quartet based in Madrid who play fresh and energetic music heavily influenced by the Downtown sound and ethos with a strong focus on improvisation. Gran Masa are Álvaro Domene (guitar), Álvaro Perez (alto sax), Sergio Mena (electric basses) and Michael Caratti (drums).
“Recorded in Madrid with a band of Spaniards and one Australian, Gran Masa’s debut album is a confounding and complex collision of sounds – whilst it’s grounded in improvised jazz there are also touches of math-rock, prog and out there experimentalism. Covering a wide-ranging sound palette, much of it pushing the boundaries of composition, Gran Masa occupy a distinctive and idiosyncratic space of their own.” – RTRFM Radio Australia
