El sonido es similar a las cenizas, lo ves, tiene forma, pero cuando intentas agarrarlo se deshace, se esfuma, vuela. (Chiu Longina)

Plus Timbre-Free download

“Static” is a short album of abstract concrete music. The main idea was to use “field recordings” from restaurants and coffee shops, mostly the sounds of plates, spoons, knifes etc., as well as sounds recorded while the artist himself was having breakfast. He also uses sets of found sounds, from objects at home. He mixes the different timbres with minimal electronics, trying to give the result a natural feel. For this album he chose 6 tracks out of 12 – the ones that worked better with the concept. The dark drones were composed especially for each theme and then added to the percussive sounds, conveying an abstract, ambient and dreamlike sense.

WebSYNradio
L’année dernière, Dominique Balaÿ m’a demandé un programme pour présenter mon travail sur l’excellente webSYNradio.
Broken Images est une compilation de mes dernières réalisations, certaines déjà éditées en album et d’autres totalement inédites.
Tous ces titres sont vraiment différents dans leur forme et leur intention, mais je pense que l’ensemble fonctionne très bien comme un « album » complet. J’espère que vous l’apprécierez !

Last year Dominique Balay ask me about a playlist with my own music, for his great webSynradio program.
Broken images is just a compilation of tracks from my last releases, some of them are from compilation albums, and some are unreleased works.
All this tracks are so different among it in sound and purpose, but I think that works very well as a complete « album ». Hope you enjoy it.
Juan Antonio Nieto aka Pangea.
