To approach a text explaining Monodrama is to take on a genuine challenge. Like Faust when ordered by Mephistopheles to "invent words, now that ideas fail you", we are bereft of signifiers to describe Monodrama's music - they are the happiest anomaly of current Spanish music, a band with no apparent reference points in our local scene. We fall into dizzying spirals, trapped by the weeds, abusing prefixes, invented idioms and imagined anglicisms, muddying the waters with terms like Chillwave, nu-Jazz, Avant Garde, Ambient, Post Rock, Synthpop, Downbeat…….endless labels which strive to define the boundaries of a terrain which really stretches, ruptures the limits between genres, textures, aesthetics and idioms arising from the jumble of instrumental music, abstract electronica, contemporary jazz, or, simply, improvised music.
