"Normal Moodo Live"

Land on the moon (and hallucinations) WITH NORMAL MOODO By Humberto Polar. Translation by robot.
12:45 am. The beautiful terrace of the Cultural Center of Spain Mexico DF has been filling up slowly but surely. A couple of hundred people dancing in peace, enjoying a set of minimal techno without :exabruptos. The DJ knows what is coming. Nobody else knows. Normal moodo. Among the crowd, three people open up and take their places against the instruments. There is a guitar, a bass, keyboards and a few PowerBooks waiting. The screen lights, video streaming and an enigmatic space sound mixed with a sample that greeted the audience: Ladies and gentlemen, from Colombia, the Sonora ... Hardly anyone has noticed (or notice) that a flag of Colombia has been placed on the balcony to accompany the band throughout the concert. When Normal & Moodo decided to translate their dreams into tracks, never thought of making music that referred to their national origin or any other nationality. When they started talking about this project in Seattle, back in 1998, his main inspiration was the space. Or what we understand from the earthlings. It is what begins to sound once the sample vanishes, the pads are growing along with the tension of the sound and the public glare, or baffled, or both. And is one o'clock and a virtual robot is: we come from the stars. Normal & Moodo consists essentially of Felipe Valencia and Luis Diago, both from Bogota, audio engineers and multi instrumentalist their formal studies with the aforementioned facts began in Seattle. Showing. Timbre clarity and strength their knowledge of the physics of sound. Diago grabs the guitar and the party starts. The feet begin to move. It is electronic music? It's rock? No matter. It is music. Very good music, from the beginning. Nacho Rettaly, Mexican, he figures to air on the keyboard. Normal Moodo raised its proposal from the first song, which floats about eight minutes and involves the participation unprepared. At the end of the first song, the audience are already semihipnotizado. Rettaly takes the bass, the tempo rises and videos mutate. From there onwards we will see unclassifiable hours, full of music that does not accept heading. This band is very clear about the time we live in this postmodern musical where it started but we know we do not know where it ends. Those are normal songs in their structure, with defined and dynamic nuances, moods. Mood. Drink from rock, pop, and ambient. His spirit is not jovial nor complacent. It is rather dark in the best sense of the word. No solos or displays of virtuosity. Believe in the power of sound abstract rhythmic foundation supported by sound and dance. You can also get enthralled with what you see and hear. The night is free. Suddenly, a girl in red shoes walking among the audience, hit the front of the stage and takes a microphone who has not been invited but it is welcome. It is Karen Ruiz, owner of a fragile and enigmatic voice, barely audible, yet powerful. Karen may be part of a Standard & Moodo or queen of karaoke. We do not know and they do nothing to tell. Sings two songs delicious as it is. Valencia trigers samples from the PowerBook, Rettally remains impeccable on the bass and Diago takes the microphone. Repeat the phrase about thirty times YO QUIERO MAS some fierce beats explode from the speakers. Loud applause. Now comes a song until now known only by the people through the disc Noiselab, It's Just Good Baby Frequencies, and the audience erupts. The rocket is in space flying safe. At the end a final version of We come from the stars and a ballad that leaves us with the taste of familiar pop in the ears. But Normal & Moodo is bittersweet pop. Diago sings an abstract point of indifference as the atmosphere in which we float nearly hour and a quarter. Everything ends in a placid landing. N&M already exists as a band, and leaves the impression. Thanks for coming, they say. Thanks for inviting us, is what we say.
