The third part of Francisco López’s already classic “trilogy of the Americas” which started with La Selva,
followed by Buildings [New York].
An immersion into the sonic matter from micro- and macro- environments
dominated by wind in Patagonia. A vast barren space shaped and inhabited
by the ever-changing forces of unmuted plants, rocks, sand, snow, and ice.
An irregular broad-band environment of relentless strength and richness.
And above all, a tour de force of profound listening.
López’s Patagonian winds have a ferocious beauty and immensity. Delicate
whispers combine with wild swarms and eddies undergirded by deep bass
punches. And all of this produced by an invisible force that endlessly sweeps
the surface of the globe. With this, we are no longer in the tidy world of human
music, but have entered the sublime domain of natural sound. (Christoph
