DVD + CD – Sudamerica Electronica
Sudamerica Electronica, a new label based in Buenos Aires, articulates most of its research around the concept of ‘extreme noise and extreme nature’, enchantments that, in the DVD – this is a double release which also includes a CD – convey the experimental sense of radical and contemporary frequencies through audio-video iterations. Inspired by an approach that we could call geographic and anthropological, the union of a certain Latino warmth and ethereal immateriality, intrinsic to these digital sounds, is very fruitful and intense. The artists, who are all members of the EXPerimentaclub + LIMb0, a collaborative electronica, audiovisual, multimedia and poetry project, were selected by Jorge Castro for the DVD section and by Jorge Haro for the audio section. Among those involved are Brian Mackern, Cesar Gabriel Castillo, Nad Spiro and Vitor Joaquim. Overall, minimal sequences, noise, ambient and drone music come together with more industrial sounds and electro-acoustic influences: these are the themes, developed with skill, accuracy and coherence.
