After the album “The Day The Universe Began Again”, in an author edition that celebrated «a special event», Floresta Oblíqua signs for Fungo its second long-duration.
“Floresta Oblíqua”, the album, is the result of extra hourly ramblings exploring electronic instruments and imagination. The compositions came up searching for other places and universes, like someone who wants to convey an intentional departure from reality. There is a conductive line, with utopian noises and landscapes, which seems to suggest the existence of a lost paradise that has ever happened or will happen.

Project by Mário Alex, it was founded 6 years ago and arises from the intrinsic curiosity about music and sounds. After synthesizers, pedals and other analogue instruments appeared at his home, the experimentation of sounds coming from these machines gave rise to compositions or simply sound tests for pure individual pleasure. With an album released in 2019, as a celebration of a special event, he has been playing in Lisbon and Barreiro.
Co-founder of Fungo, he is responsible for all the graphic work of the collective. Graphic designer by profession and passionate about music, over the years his work in composing images has been at the service of several institutions of a mostly cultural nature. He is currently Creative Director at Fluo / ADDB. In the area of music, he signs as Just Jaeckin (Dj).
