This new solo album by Francisco Meirino might at first look like a fairly short 9 tracks ride but it immediately attracts attention and the need for concentration by alternating, with various degrees, intensity, dynamics and volume.
This assemblage of endless changes with the obvious hissing sound of reel-to-reel motors, the brutal voltage discharges of dying equipments, brings warmth and focus on the other important aspect of this detailed audio work ... the threat of an unknown sonic language.
Assembled and mastered at Shiver Mobile in 2011-2012,
with audio & visual data gathered in Switzerland & China.
Using : computer, reel-to-reel tape recorders, analog synth, field recorder, various home-made electronics,
piezo transducers, radio scanner and electro-magnetic sensors.
Born in 1975, Francisco Meirino is active since 1994 (as phroq until 2009) in sound and live performance, he explores the tension between programmable material and the potential for its failure.
More than 100 live performances in various venues and festivals in Europe, Japan and North America.
