Music | Review: “Deterrence” by Ricardo Donoso

Ricardo Donoso is a composer and electronic musician from Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, who crafts spine tingaling electro that you’d expect from a dark movie or game. A Berklee College of Music and New England Conservatory gradute, he has a unique skill of ‘contemporary composition, drone, to techno and noise.’

“Sarava Exu” was written by Donoso about the rituals of the Brazilian cult of Quimbanda. The sounds have been described as “symphonic poem of a Quimbanda ritual and the musical accompaniment of Descent into one’s own personal hell.”

If you like suspenseful and moody string based techno, then this is worth a listen.
