Capturas del Único Camino (US Version)

“Capturas del Único Camino provides the perfect accompaniment for lull or relaxation; moreover offering a beautiful object for passive contemplation. The recording on this album has been performed using an algorithm that proclaims the computer as a live performer (beyond the possibilities of this work of being performed by musicians). In the computer, the designed software manipulates different kinds of sonic materials consisting of: acoustic instruments (played by the composer); sounds generated by his mouth and vocal tract (also by the composer); sounds created by synthesis techniques; and other recordings of sounds generated by water. This interpretation algorithm involves a list of directions and actions subjected by random choices according to a model proposed for the piece’s first section score. Furthermore, it should be noted that although it is presented in cassette and digital audio here, this work is developed as an audiovisual installation. In all cases, the combination of sounds and visual components that make up the work offer a relaxed tour of abstract scapes.

Already Dead is proud to present a unique US variation of this already critically acclaimed work in collaboration with Concepto Cero of Argentina.”
