drone2805 Aliens, abandon yourself and savor the colors of this jungle before the beginning of the rain and the fall of the night, before losing all your landmarks in those places where the screems without body are lost and the floating eyes watching you. Soon, your senses will betray you as the song of your discomfort melts to the sounds of the forest. At the end of this adventure, shivering and tired, but still alive, your misguidance will at least inspire you. But you'll know, this world was not yours. Favorite track: In many ways, trapped | SIMON WHETHAM.

about

In April 2011 David Vélez invited Simon Whetham to Bogota to run a field recording workshop at the Nacional University as part of the Masters in Fine Arts that Vélez was taking.
They also planned to work together outside the workshop, a major part of this exchange being to visit the Colombian Amazonas – to record, explore and collaborate – capturing sounds and sharing experiences.
During the trip, they were removed from their comfort zone and endured the rigors of the jungle in different situations, such as becoming lost in the first night and wandering around until they found their way back to their base. Also, two days before they returned, they traveled for many hours along the river itself, in the darkest night, on a tiny raft, in an experience that can only be described as sublime and unfathomable.
All these situations created a strong bond between the artists that was articulated in a concert as part of the MA; and now on this release, that has required several revisits because the artists’ impressions of the trip, the locations, the memories, the emotions have continued to evolve following the original experience.

(David Vélez – Simon Whetham, July 2013)
