For its second collaboration release, Daniel Menche & Anla Courtis go further and deeper into their previous steps. “Cuspa Llullu” is an intense journey through a kaleidoscopic sound labyrinth which seems to come from nowhere/everywhere.
Side A moves into metallic corridors with multi-layered surfaces which keep changing until its last second.
Side B begins outdoors but somehow it soon starts visiting several inner regions until it reaches its final climax.
But what is exactly the sound matter moving around on these tracks? Sounds here are not inert samples; there’re vibrating beings full of life and in constant mutation. Frequency-lifeforms moving everywhere in ways that can be only appreciated if we’re able to listen not only with the ears but with the whole body.
The strange animal on the cover might serve a metaphor of these organic sound-form entities which proliferate around within the habitat of this album.
Recorded between Portland and Buenos Aires, this sound collaboration reveals a sonic world that seems to have its own existence somewhere in the Geosphere and maybe also beyond.
