"Ruins become the unconscious of a city, its memory, unknown, darkness, lost lands, and in this truly bring it to life. With ruins a city springs free of its plans into something as intricate as life, something that can be explored but perhaps not mapped."

- Rebecca Solnit, A Field Guide to Getting Lost


"Pour Alto Seul" is Arrias’s first solo work. It came about as a result of a work period early 2018 and does not claim to provide a comprehensive picture of the artist, but is an exploration of more specific ideas. In eight tracks with strong musical identities Arrias explores the saxophone as a sole voice and sound source, and to some extent his own identity. The recordings create an atmosphere of being alone among ruins; a desolate environment, a harsh but promising and exiting place full of memories, darkness, obscurity and opportunities. If the approach to the work came from the interest in the saxophone in itself, resonance, sound, musical identity and expression, then the selection and post-processing turned out be more about Arrias’s personal identity and reflections on a varied background which consists of a grandfather from Surinam, who fled World War II, to unite with the grandmother from Pajala, in Jönköping.

"Pour Alto Seul" is recorded at St. Jacobs church and Fylkingen, Stockholm, in Februaty 2018
