sample the album:
"Cilantro presents a world full of enigmas, labyrinths, sometimes abrasive, sometimes ecstatic, a complex and delicate subjectivity. Recorded in a basement in Podersdorf am See, a resort Austrian area, it conjures dark resonances of the space waking up memories hidden inside. Borderland deals with blurry edges of contradictory matters coming together and they put under scrutiny the activity in bordering areas between noise and silence, tenderness and rudeness, beat and drone, inner consciousness and outer awareness, control and freedom, forming the pieces by pulling the lever between structure and chaos, beauty and ugliness, demonstrating a thrilling display of human and technological interplay."-Mikroton

"Angélica Castelló Recorder player, composer, improviser, sound artist, curator, teacher.
Born in Mexico City in 1972, Castelló studied music in her native town at the Conservatorio Nacional de México, at the Université de Montréal, at the Conservatorium van Amsterdam, at the Konservatorium der Stadt Wien and at the Department of Composition and Electroacoustics at the University of Music and Performing Arts Vienna. Since 1999, she has lived in Vienna, where she is a teacher. In the year 2004, she founded the concert series "Neue Musik in St. Ruprecht", and has organised hundreds of concerts and events.
Even though she remains devoted to old music, new and electroacoustic music take center stage in her work. She co-founded the ensembles Low Frequency Orchestra, frufru (with Maja Osojnik), cilantro (with Billy Roisz), subshrubs (with Katharina Klement, Tamara Wilhelm and Maja Osojnik) and Chesterfield (with Burkhard Stangl) Plenum, Zimt (with Gunter Schneider, Barbara Romen and Burkhard Stangl) a.o.. She has performed in Europe and America with these ensembles and with other musicians such as, Martin Siewert, John Butcher, Dafne Vicente-Sandoval, Urkuma, Franz Hautzinger, Isabelle Duthoit, dieb13, Jerome Noetinger, Mario de Vega, Attila Faraveli, Kazu Uchihashi, Bonnie Jones, Juanjose Rivas, Steve Bates, Olga Neuwirth, Wolfgang Mitterer and others.
As a composer, she writes for her own instruments (mainly the Paetzold sub great bass recorder, with and without electronics) and for ensembles (amongst them the Danubia Saxophonquartett, Reconsil Ensemble Vienna and the Haydn Piano Trio) as well as Electroacustic Works. Her music has been published by the labels Mosz, Instertellar Records, Orlando Records, einklang_records, Mandorla Label, Mikroton Recordings, Monotype Records and chmafu nocords. Numerous composers, including Hilda Paredes, Daniel de la Cuesta, Katharina Klement, Burkhard Stangl, Jorge Sánchez-Chiong, and Mario Lavista, have worked with Angélica Castelló or dedicated pieces to her. In recent years, Castelló's work has included installations that operate at the interface of music, performance and visual arts (Electroaltar, Electroaltar for J.C., Electroaltar für C.N., Margarita' Stillleben Theater).
Her debut album, "Bestario", unites the multifaceted nature of Angélica Castelló's work: Recordings of her own instruments serve as the raw material for pieces in which she edits the sounds of her flutes, sometimes beyond recognition, and combines them with frequently deformed fragments of other elements - be they electronically produced or found elsewhere - to a musical entity in which multiple layers overlap. She weaves existing pieces of other composers, such as Bach, into these contemporary forms of electronic processing, thereby referencing her work as an interpreter of old music. Even though her other sources of inspiration, such as from literature or visual arts, often have specific roots, they lead Castelló to an abstract engagement with such topics as death, and dealing with traumatic encounters. Wide-ranging combinations of sounds that are constantly and sometimes simultaneously moving in different directions provide continuity as well as surprises, and when listened to repeatedly, they shed new light on the beasts from literature, the animal kingdom, and daily life that have been set to music."-Angelica Castello Website (http://castello.klingt.org/wp-content/uploads//2016/02/castello-bio-eng-2016.pdf)
