IN CREATING NEW MUSIC FOR SOLO DRUM SET VI

OXYOQUET

el volcán silencioso

OXYOQUET el volcán silencioso, and open work composed improvisation for extended/prepared drum set, real time electronics, soundscape and video art.

 

This is my fourth and last most recent work composition from 2013-2015. Recorded in Mexico City in 2016, and produced on CD by Amirani Records, Italy. The piece is conceived as ¨a naturalistic piece for self reflection on human specie nature species on Earth¨.  And was  structured in twelve cadences as a whole continuous piece. It is an intricate  labyrinth of percussive passages, where soundscapes, electronics and acoustic percussion melds down to create a deep sonic experience.

 

The work was inspired in el Cerro de Huitepec, a natural reservoir in Tzotzil territory, Altos de Chiapas, in los pueblos Zinacantán and San Juan Chamula.
