Misc. Comments

The Red Isle for 8 channels (2009) here is the stereo version. This is a piece that came from a collective network project of RedAsla (Latin-American Sound Art Network). The members had contributed with several small fragments of 15 seconds. The material I found was very interesting, hence I took two of them, those of Alejandro Albornoz and Julio Shalom, whom I thank for the raw material. First, I transform the material in even more fragmented particles of less than a second, re-reading them in multiple micro fragments, lengthening, multiplying, accumulating, spatializing, massing the material in an 8-channel system, always bearing in mind the musical form. Here there is a wink and of course a tribute to a group which one of their albums I admired and listened “to the edge” in the '70s, Yes.
