Miquel Vilella, Writer in Song

“Miquel Vilella, who has published works under the name of The Mighty Fools, received great critical praise with his previous album, ‘You’re so good to me’. His songs unveiled the work of a muscular musician, expert arranger of vocals and harmonies and a devout collector of unidentifiable sounds. His latest album, ‘Després del món/Farewell Dear Towermen’ is released as a double CD with two different titles. It features the same intense, heartbreaking songs sung both in catalan and in english.”
He shared with us his world of integrity, purity, complex melodies and feelings at the edge of words. As an opening experience, we asked him to write a tale and a song for and from this place. This short film presents a sketch of his two days at camp

Search questions

As a consequence of our search as architects, we also produce understanding and knowledge made of words -written and spoken. This search revolves around twelve constant themes, questions we don’t have a definitive answer to yet. This knowledge is not just a by-product of our activity, but rather an instrumental part that develops simultaneously and is imbricated in building. Search Questions is our sisyphean effort to organize and share this knowledge while it's blossoming, fragile and unstable. By doing so, a more specific understanding, and more refined questions emerge.
