“Aun tenemos donde descansar”
“Aún tenemos donde descansar” is the first EP produced by Santiago-based dúo “malaqh” (Francisco Sánchez, drums; Felipe Zenteno, electronics and programming). The EP is composed of three tracks. Each of them has an individual identity in terms of timbres and textures, but all of them have movement as the underlying premise. A risky proposition, this EP inhabits the rudimentary and futuristic giving way to a fresh and rhythmatic listening experience.
At its core, this release is about improvised music. Elements of ambient, jazz, and noise come together to create a soundscape where digital language is conjugated by the body language of the drummer, resulting in a hybrid plasticity that is felt as pure possibility.
The cover was made by Chilean visual artist Camila Vilches, who represented malaqh‘s proposed soundscape of apparent opposites.
