Comment: in the second half of the 00s and the first half of the 10s a major experimental music platform was a prolific Moscow, Russia-based Clinical Archives, since then fecund France-based Sirona-Records, and after it ceased to exist fertile Chicago, US-based Pan Y Rosas Discos is up there to provide us sounds mostly from improvised, free jazz, sound art, and at times from experimental/avant-rock world. Fortunately there is also up Portuguese imprint Enoughrecords having already been active since 2001. This 9-track album is created from recordings of sound environments and free improvisations. She sought to recreate situations and sound environments of imaginary places, proposed new ways of listening and re-value the everyday soundscape. Musically it is intriguing as if consisting of elongated sonic snippets and warped ambiences which in turn seem to be created from concrete sounds, indecipherable voices and vowel and electronic effects. By the way, I can hear mutant cicadas and stoned cats to be singing. Now and then, for instance, at Pacto Roto one can partake in an enchanting rhythmic pattern which seems to come from nowhere and last for a while. She was backed up by such artists as Jimena Arruti, Lucía Campugiani, Nicolàs Gonzàlez, Ingrid Palacios, Laura Rodríguez, Elena Solis and Agustín Texeira. Indeed, very pro by any means and full of pleasure to be discovered.
