Telectu

From Unearthing The Music

Telectu live.

Telectu is a Portuguese experimental, avant-garde music duo formed in 1982 by Vítor Rua (former member of GNR) and Jorge Lima Barreto, a jazz musician and musical essayist.[1] Their music incorporates a variety of elements from free jazz, rock, electronica, minimalism and concrete music.[2] They are arguably the most important project of its genre in Portugal. Their career spanning 30 years, includes a voluminous discography, many national and international performances and collaborations, both live and recorded, with important experimental and improvisation musicians such as Elliott Sharp, Carlos Zíngaro, Jac Berrocal, Sunny Murray, Chris Cutler amongst others.[3] They have also composed music for theater, video art and multimedia performance. The project temporarily, ceased activity with the death of Jorge Lima Barreto in 2011, but surviving member Vítor Rua still occasionally performs Telectu music with António Duarte and Ilda Teresa Castro.
