There is a history of music stemming from time spent recovering from injury. On such example is Brian Eno’s story of creating ambient music, following a prolonged period being couch bound with a broken leg.
Sustainer’s Radiolas, shares a similar tale of horizontal inspirations.
Whilst recovering from a serious health condition, Alex Alarcón aka Sustainer, began working with a very limited palette of equipment at arms reach. This mix of small recorders, pedals and other electronics become a processing chain through which he started to feed shortwave radio recordings.
Having worked with radio recordings previously it didn’t take long for these recordings to take on a very personal and cathartic aesthetic. “Years ago i used to record things with another shortwave receiver at my parents house,” Alex explains, “because it was near the sea and you could catch easily stations from north of Africa. Sometimes I was even able to reach marine stations from boats crossing the Mediterranean Sea. It was an incredibly inspirational feeling tapping into these streams of sound.”
On Radiolas, Sustainer creates a metaphoric ocean of harmonic noise. Waves of frequency collide and lap at the edges of one another. The richness of the material, both in terms of texture and harmonics, invites the listener to sink deep beneath the surface and to become drowned in the intricacy of the interlocking layers of distended radiowaves.

The Spark of Omnipotence:
Stochastic, atonality, minimalism, organic textures, field recordings, voices, poetry, spectralism, all them are the core of composition model of the work “The Spark of Omnipotence”, in which the composer, through electronic and digital manipulation of sonic elements has manageds to conceive a complex and innovative acousmatic work which leads us towards a deep musical universe.
The Spark of Omnipotence is divided in two musical pieces; the first composition has a higher degree of emphasis around the analysis of the sound spectrum of the sonic, in which components that tend to be sequential are developed on a cluster tonal.
The second composition has a greater emphasis on digital manipulation of the sound spectrum and with the frequency modulation and time dilation of the various sound elements, in which priority is given to hold the harmony between dissonance and consonance.
Produced, mixed and mastered using Pure Data, Alsa Modular Synth, Ardour and Audacity.
Composed and produced by René Muñoz Córdova.
Cover art and poetry by René Muñoz Córdova.
