Photography: Tatiana Wolf
Design: Alan F JonesTwo new compositions from Rolando Hernández and Nicolás Carrasco, beautifully interpreted and executed by the Chilean duo of Cristián Alvear and Santiago Astaburuaga. This release marks the duo’s first recordings for the public, while they prepare for much more in the immediate future.Using physical objects and in situ cues through photography and video to realize complex scores, Alvear and Astaburuaga recorded these pieces live in the CHT studios in Santiago, Chile. Employing aggressive recording techniques and microphone placements to capture the main instrumentation of tabletop electric bass and classical guitar, the outcome is as lovely as anything Marginal Frequency has had the pleasure to present for the label’s listeners.topializ (excerpt)
