Flower Myth Records is proud to present Cable a Tierra - the experimental, ambient sound track originally written for the award winning documentary The Sky Commodified (2019). Composed almost completely of field recordings captured on-site at various observatories in the Atacama Desert in Chile.
The soundscapes presented explore the rich acoustic economy of the Atacama Desert, the deep connection between earth and space, the translation of distant quasars from light to data, the wind as it travels across ancient rock, through modern industrial structures of steel and wire.
A beautiful, otherworldly journey through time and space, at times mysterious, dark, nervous, innocent, beautiful, transcendent, at the edge of understanding. It is the sound of the earth, the sound of our stars, the universe made audible. Cable a Tierra.
About the Artists:
Nicole L’Huillier works with sounds, vibrations, resonances, and multiple transductions to explore more-than-human performativity and agency from micro to cosmic scales; to create membranal and resonant (neo)rituals; and to investigate vibrations and sounds as construction materials for spaces and identity while fostering collectivity and stimulating imagination in non-static and embodied ways. From an antidisciplinary perspective, she navigates the porous and fertile territories between arts and sciences. She works with new and ancient technologies for storytelling and creation to actively engage with the possibilities beyond anthropocentric perspectives and to practice decolonial worldling.
Nicolás Kisic Aguirre is a Peruvian architect and transdisciplinary sound artist who creates machines that explore and illuminate the social and political nature of sound in public space. Informed by his background in architecture and a lifelong fascination with machines, Nicolás designs and builds sound instruments that explore the connection between public space, power, technology, and sound. His critical and aesthetic practice is open-source, collaborative, and deeply engaged with the public.
