Album highlight : Rogelio Sosa / Eclíptica (Volume 1)
Rogelio Sosa - guitar, feedback and electronics
The pieces in Ecliptica were produced from explorations made with a modular array of guitar pedals - connected in a closed circuit - that generates and processes feedback signals.
The sounds resulting from this feedback system are rooted in complex signals of chaotic behavior. The improvisational and compositional mediation with this instrument consists in executing small parametric variations that trigger new arborescences of a continuous energy flow that seems to have an organic, autonomous and everchanging life.
