Emphase is an acid techno track in its purest form: an acidline which wobbles and cuts through the bass while at the same time chilling as it drives you on.
Mseq’s remix of Emphase is the perfect oldskool detroitesque counterpart of the original. It is also built on the acidline but has its own character. The way the harmonies are being played emphasizes his great style.
Burn it down is a raw house track with vocal shreds animating you to burn down things. We encourage you to dance to the groove of this chicago-style tune instead.
Wave reaches sensory input. Stimulus transforms to current. Signal travels through neuron network. Electric burst creates perception. Pattern recognition generates psychosomatic response. Gland emits substance. Thought pattern decoheres. Subject enters meditative state. Social-situational information lost. Emotional response bound to auditory system. Effects persist for duration of trial. Memory area reformatted. Experience subsequently perceived as real.
“With Lluvia Ácida, we have been making music together for 20 years, always from the Chilean Patagonia. In the beginning, in a context absolutely dominated by Rock and folklore, we made music inspired by the bands that we liked, all European and born of urban and industrial environments. Over time we understood that we had our own environment to inspire us, one in which technology is implemented in wild and lonely places, creating a contrast that is increasingly scarce in our country and the world.
We consider ourselves Explorers, because many of our works exhibited the results of an adventure or an investigation. So it was with albums like, “Tierra de Espectros” (2002), “Antartikos” (2005), “La Idea – Canto a la Federación Obrera de Magallanes” (2007), “Kuluana” (2009) and “Insula in albis” (2013).
“Zonas de Silencio” (Zones of Silence)” is the result of one of these adventures. This consisted of moving the act of Composing and Recording an album and a film outside the comfort of the studio, carrying portable technology to remote locations and abandoned premises of our environment, specifically in the communes of Punta Arenas and San Gregorio. In successive outings between the months of January and May 2014, we managed to record improvisations in places as dissimilar and evocative as a volcanic crater, a steamer rusting on the banks of the Strait, an abandoned lighthouse, a small and little known ranch, the structure of an old fridge, a coal mine, a beautiful cinema closed for more than a decade and a closed hospital. It was our way of merging ourselves with the landscapes that we love, in the shadow of the remains that were left at the edge of the Road of the Magellanes Story.
With “Zonas de Silencio”, we feel that we have contributed another vision of our Frontier Society, one which doesn’t glorify anyone in particular. We are only Ourselves and our Machines, forming a closed circuit but sensitive to the vibrations emitted by the solitary places.”

She would love to work with music, but before, she uses to take a camera, brushes and plastic materials.
She works on art: knowledge, find meanings, researching, expression and listen through it.
Also, she experiments with possibilities and plays with perspectives,
to make prominent different shapes. In short, show a new version.
