about

Tracks recorded live from the Infinite Spaces live performance.

All tracks were created with the Wall of Sound recording technique. Wall of Sound is a production technique created in the 60’s by Phil Spector to make pop songs stand out in mono AM radio by playing many instruments together in the same room to create music that was carried by sound. In Infinite Spaces, this technique is used to design sounds, and create space and enlarge the sense of depth in the listener.

The author spent a whole year recollecting, selecting and classifying sounds that are harmonically compatible and provide the right texture to be played together. You may hear field recordings, samples from other pieces from the author, samples from synthesizers or real instruments, conversations with friends and found sounds.

During the performance, this sounds are played together, part of this selection is based on the previous classification of sounds, the interaction with the artist, and the rest is selected by a pseudo random algorithm based on Markov Chains. This creates live interaction between the performer and the machine. What you hear is a combination of sounds that generates unheard sounds and textures. The performance of this piece cannot be repeated, given the random nature of the of sounds.

Infinite Spaces makes a huge collection of sounds sound bigger and richer than its parts, via a well balanced dose of harmony, human interaction and technology that creates and expressive cloud of lush, melancolic and drone musical pieces.
