Concert. Exploradores del Sonido: An Encounter with the Electronic Sights and Sounds of South America
Exhibiting the vanguard of 21st century Latin American electronic music, this travelling audio-visual concert series will present performances from three multi-media acts associated with the highly distinguished Chilean netlabel Pueblo Nuevo (pueblonuevo.cl). Artists include: Frank Benkho (aka Mika Martini), whose largely improvisational electroacoustic performances mix the sounds of Chilean ethnic experience with abstract elements linked to the techniques of microsampling and minimalism; Namm (aka Pablo Flores), whose melodic electronica and eclectic sound collage works feature audio fragments sampled from Chile’s diverse urban and natural soundscapes; and the duo Lluvia Acida (Rafael Cheuquelaf and Héctor Aguilar), whose music engages the rich culture, landscape, and history of the Southern Patagonian region where they reside, through a mixture of electronic rhythms and sequences, folkloric instrumentation, and documentary video.
