Steppes, deserts and arid mountains dominate the region of Cuyo in west Argentina. Within this barren land, a fragile water infrastructure creates fertile valleys, croplands and vineyards. The piece moves between these extremes of dry and wet. The wind, as well as the the hands of the recordist articulate the silent elements of the landscape. Except gentle equalization, all composed sounds are unprocessed.

Detailed field recordings made in Tbilisi unveil an underground life – of street musics, traffic-stopping drunken revelries, and most of all a delicious blend of textures that offer a delirium of sonic pleasures. Not content to present documentary evidence, each track offers a blend of moments and encounters, a theme-inspired montage that digs deep into the city’s unwanted histories. mikehoolboom
