Recorded at Valentine Studio, Banff Centre for Arts and Creativity, in Banff, Canada, in July 2022, by Maria Valencia.
"Compendio de Alofonias Abisales" was imagined between the town of Sutatausa (Colombia) and the mountains of Banff (Canada). Intuitively, it was recorded in July 2022 during an artistic residency at the Banff Centre for Arts and Creativity. Inspired by old naturalist manuals, the pieces that make up this recording are fleeting sound taxonomies that ambiguously reveal the movements of the wind, the play of the martens, the dance of the spiders, the hyperactivity of the kestrels, the incredible floating life of the neustonic communities and the random melodies woven by the Toches (icterus chrysater), small dorsidorated birds that inhabit the Colombian Andes."-Relative Pitch
