El Gòtic is the fourth album by Alexandre Coelho Quartet, led by Coimbra-based drummer and composer Alexandre Coelho.
It intends to celebrate the sensorial confluence in which a story, a place, a memory trigger sounds, melodies, songs in the imaginary. The synesthesia underlying this process is revealed not only upstream in the creative process but also downstream when the melody already triggers a story, a scenario, a chimera, a reverie or an illusion that in itself completes the process of creation.
Each song is a story, a journey made of places and people. In this sense, this album celebrates diversity and eclecticism. Without a doubt the flowering of a great harvest that is expected, year after year, to become a great Vintage.
