"Using amplified objects and no-input mixers, Barriere and Garcia have put together one of those recordings where my level of enjoyment (high) matches my inability to say much of anything coherent about it. It's generally very quiet although two of the four tracks begin with bursts of harsh noise and there are several lesser eruptions throughout. The sounds are packed with some degree of denseness, busy enough to generate a kind of scurrying quality though not so much as to become gabby. There are a few elements that are long-held, though they tend to be backgrounded, the more percussive or burblingly electronic sounds catching your attention more easily. It's very calm in the sense that you don't feel the pair is hurrying to get anywhere, just carefully ambling about, noticing the odd patch of interest, investigating it for a bit, moving on. They create an active, very alive space, airy but subtly intense. Something clicks really well here, some tensile connections established that vanish when you try to look at them directly. Really fine work, I highly recommended seeking it out."-Brian Olewnick, Just Outside


Artist Biographies:

"Miguel A. García (aka Xedh) from the Basque country, is one of the most dynamic sound artists in the Spanish scene. His work focuses mainly on the composition and electro-acoustic improvisation. He uses sounds taken from electronic devices residues, often interrelated with field recordings or acoustic instruments, in the search of an intimate, intense and immersive experience. A music of adventurous forms, full of contrasts and having nevertheless a sense of humor. His background comprises fine arts and audiovisual technology, having created projects such as Válvula Antirretorno, Baba Llaga or Mubles, questioning the borders between electro-acoustic academic music, industrial music and the so called outsider music.

With his solo project, he has participated in experimental music festivals all over Spain, as Ertz (Navarra), Experimentaclub (Madrid), Lem (Barcelona), Mem (Bilbao) or Sonikas (Vallecas), and he has played in diverse scenarios such as Auditorio Nacional de Música (Madrid), or museums such as Artium (Vitoria), Guggenheim (Bilbao), Macuf (A Coruña) or Vostell Malpartida (Cáceres). Outside Spain, he has played in festivals in Germany, Belgium, USA, France, The Netherlands, Norway, Poland and Portugal. His work has been released worldwide by labels as Copy for your records (USA), Homophoni (USA), Pilgrim Talk (USA), Slaughter Recs (Italy), Trait Central (USA), Triple Bath (Greece), Zeromoon (USA), or White Line (UK).

Still a young member of the international free improvisation scene, he works regularly with Ilia Belorukov, Alfredo Costa Monteiro, Oier Iruretagoiena, Xabier Lopez, Alvaro Matilla, Seijiro Murayama or Hector Rey. He has collaborated with arists such Lali Barriere, Heddy Boubaker, Alexander Bruck, Raul Dominguez, Jean-Luc Guionnet, Richard Kamerman, Kurt Liedwart, Nick Hoffman, Wade Matthews, Jorge Nuñez, Carlos Suarez or Valentina Vuksic, and bands like Cooloola Monster, Gora Japon, maDam or Hamburguesa Vegetal. As a promoter, amongst other projects, is the founder of the Club Le Larraskito and director of the Zarata Fest, both platforms dedicated to the broadcast of challenging art and music."
