Chrs. Galarreta – Raw Field Recordings I : Habitación en Buenos Aires (CDr Uzusounds 2011)
I made these field recordings with a Mini Disk recorder between August and September of 2004 during a tour in Argentina.The sonorous saturations and effects were caused by the acoustic characteristics of the spaces I found and the microphoning method I used when I was making the field recordings. I did not add any effects during the editing and mastering process of the first four tracks, except for a light equalization, some minimal cuts and a selection of parts. A version of this release was previously published as “Antiturismo : Habitación en Buenos Aires”(08/2010) by the Netlabel Sudamérica Electrónica.These new definitive version was re-mastered and re-titled to be published by Uzuzounds.I added as a bonus track a live recording I made on March 19, 2011 in Nantes. It is an improvisation generated with an automata-sampler I programmed on Pure Data to which I added the track 04 “Metros aires” in order to have it processed by it. “Raw field recordings I: Habitación en Buenos Aires” was edited and mastered in Lima, Mexico D.F.,Paris and Nantes at different moments between 2006 and 2011. This is the first volume of a series called “Raw Field Recordings”. Its title is a reference to the collection of poems of Jorge Eduardo Eielson named “Habitación en Roma” and also a reference to the bizarre experiences the poet lived in a parisian room, which motivated him to write the poem “PTYX”.
