(Paralelo 18)

Jorge Castro and Claudio Chea performed this in 2003 in Puerto Rico using data sound files and partially manipulated field recordings. Almost immediately we’re thrown in the “infinite variations on white noise and feedback” line; an electric mass slowly grabbing the air makes me think about one thing only: burning flames. The scenario remains more or less the same with progressively growing intensity; there is no gold at the end of the rainbow here – and the rainbow itself it’s pretty metallic. A no-smiles, no-nonsense work likely to be appreciated by fans of Lasse Marhaug’s dirtiest recordings and – in general – of noisy minimalism.
