The second album by the improvisatory duo Johannes Haase (Germany) and Óscar Santis (Chile), in this work we find two strokes, each one with a particular character and energy, music born from an ambient minimalism of high contrast based on the energy and sonority of each of them, together they create these sonorous images of highly oneiric and aquatic depth, that revoke the dunes, the sea, and the factories near Ritoque.
Trazo uno (Stroke one); of an aggressive character, contained and defragmented, the sonorities created by the electric violin of Haase are hidden between textures blurred by processes and loops, these at moments, contrasted by the electronics of Santis, overwhelming, from aleatoric rhythms and great sonic density, almost pixelated, together they create landscapes that are deconstructed and assembled in an organic way, creating textures of high spatiality.
Trazo dos (Stroke two); a deep and spacious texture, of aquatic time that is constructed of subtle gestures that coexist in a state of contemplation, the temporal absence that they generate immerses us in a very deep listening almost like daydreaming, a continuous variation that little by little comes and goes transforming and giving rise to this fragmented minimalism that brings us back to that which is human.
A disc where temporality and form are given through the organic needs of the moment, which takes us into subtle states of listening, where we can manage to enter the fine interwoven fabric and the decisions through which the music was tacken on, at the personal level, a work of brief landscaping with an occultist essence, two strokes that propose contrasting states from the same nature, listening and freedom.
