A site-specific recording sporting a straightforward approach. An album of modern day exotica, yet Cardoso steers his vehicle easily aside the trapdoors and potholes. Combining found sounds, sparse playing and field recordings he creates a world that both invokes Treasure Island, and an essay on Exoticism. Indeed questions are raised. But especially emotions are shared. Sometimes Cardoso just registers (sounds), sometimes he alters and collages the material into new worlds.
