The track ‘Traffic signal boxes and tramlines’ from my still unpublished release ‘Raw Field Recordings II: Electromagnetic Detritus’ appears in the compilation ‘Electromagnetic Sensings’ of LOM label (Slovakia) .Thanks to Jonáš Gruska for it!. To listen or buy all the compilation visit the website of the label https://lom.audio/ . My track is a mono field recording of electrosmog taked during one of my workshops (Rhiz Bar – Vienna, 17/07/2012). The track is part of a selection of raw material without overdubs or effects. The different types of electromagnetic transducers and their positions, as well as the spatial conditions, influenced the acoustic dynamics and saturations of these sounds. Play it loud!
The sound of my installation “Kanichu Manchu Icha Llullacunichu” is available now in cassette via Fougére Musique Label (France). I called the release “And The Voice Became Space”. If you want to buy the cassette please visit the bandcamp site of the label (link below). This installation was part of “La Grande Exposition D’Art Sonore #1” (Nantes, 2011). Because a confrontation with the organizers of that exhibition, my piece had been censured by them, so my credits are omitted in their on-line documentation about this exhibition. To read more about the content of my installation and to find images of the exhibition’s catalogue (without censorship), please visit this link. PLAY IT LOUD!
To celebrate the solstice , we design special dresses to dance and walk around the streets. As part of our dresses we build some circuits that reacts to the sun-light and we mix these sounds with Andean traditional dance music specially distorted for this occasion. The audience join us with some sound instruments that they bring to play during the celebration. Below some pictures of Aurora, Sajjra & Castillo, the Aloardi clan in metamorphosis some hours before the procession.

“Yesterday evening joined an absolute great event and show in R’dam Noord. First a book presentation by Patricia Pinheiro de Sousa at our printer de Boog followed up by a street parade by artist collective Aloardi (artists from Peru) to celebrate their traditional beginning of summer. They were all dressed up with masks and colorfull dresses…we all had to make sound/music. The walk ended at galerie Mirta DeMare for the finissage of the show Do It With Us by artist who participate in Filmwerkplaats workshop. Around twelve 16mm projection spread all over the galerie. SUPER! I think this is the most exiting show I have seen in a long time” (Robert Hamenlijck)
