Lisbon is Portugal’s coastal capital, and former sunny home to the now Berlin-based audio-visual artist Bruno Santos, aka Cleymoore. You might of thought all the bright skies and vitamin D would be trickling into Bruno’s work, but that wouldn’t be entirely true.
Father of the ever-growing artist collective and record-label Pluie/Noir, an imprint focused on audio-visual collaborations under his artistic curation, Cleymoore has a very peculiar vision about music and how it should be experienced. Over the last 4 years Pluie/Noir released 70 audio-visual podcasts, 2 cassettes and 9 vinyl-only releases that showcase world-wide talents from young names such as Vlad Caia or Volkan Akin, to veterans by the likes of Petre Inspirescu or Fumiya Tanaka.
Cleymoore’s behavior behind the decks and his own musical material does indeed contain a smidge of the feel good stuff, except its wedged between micro housey madness, dynamic experimentalism and mind meddling arrangements, and this might well be the result of his daily submersion in the worlds of audio-visual arts. Mind house, perhaps? With a steadily growing catalog of vinyl releases and upcoming EPs on his own imprints Pluie/Noir and Klangstudie, as well as other record-labels he respects and admires, his career is moving towards a very promising future.
In between music making and graphic designing, he’s been actively dj’ing around the globe performing in clubs & festivals such as Concrete, Rex, Air Tokyo, Club der Visionaere, Closer, Waha Festival or Piknic Electronik, to name a few.
