Cloudwatchers_Unexplained

 

CloudWatchers is an experimental electronic music group, focused on musical improvisation and formed by Andrés Alonso, Iván Cebrián, Coco Moya and Jaime Munárriz.
Their work process consists of improvisation sessions in which they start from a small and completely open idea, from which they navigate through some of the possibilities that open up before their perception.

This albums involves the recovery of human voice, with random poetry, and voice generators.

I used to write the lirycs for my band in the punk/new wave/after punk era.
They were strange lyrics, playing with language, surrealism,
associations, aliterations… I was even presented as a “young poet” at an official venue, around 1983.
I tried to follow different paths, as my father is a well known poet, and I preferred to open my own fields.
I kept writing in my 80s & 90s projects, until I got into electronic music, instrumental electronic music with no voice.
I’ve been working on this abstract electronic music since 1999, and I was missing the voice, words and their complex building of worlds and stories.
I’ve been trying to recover voice and text for my music for 5 years, and it’s been a difficult task.
Voice is so powerful, so vivid and full of content it can shadow any other music material.
Instead of just writing the lyrics and singing, or looking for a good singer, I started research on every language generative
process I could find, writing my own code in Processing and also trying some other tools.
Random text generators, remixing found texts, cutout and collage, all this intertwined with my own writing.
For the voices I tried text to speech software, real voice recordings and an interesting and subtle amount of processing.
I needed evocative voices that could melt with the electronic landscape.
All this journey has produced a varied amount of works, that I couldn’t just fit into an album.
So the project gives birth as the “Voicescapes” project, with Dr. One Voice as my writing alter ego.
This album, “Splendid tales of life and death” is the first in the series.
They will share a different aesthetics from my usual albums, inspired by the first jazz album covers
and the first computer art from the pioneers.

It wasn’t easy to find a place where this material would fit. After a long research, I resorted to
Petroglyph Music, as they had “spoken voice” in their manifesto, and some published albums that I
found could relate to this recordings. The mix of experimental genres, good ideas
and a high musical quality in all it’s releases made it the perfect place to be.
I want to thank Jørgensen & Martinsen for giving shelter to this project.
Voice will return and play inside the electronic landscapes.

Aural Films is happy to present a special birthday tribute to Klaus Schulze who turns 71 today, August 4, 2018. Listen to 20 tracks by various artists from around the world who have been inspired by Klaus’s work since the Mid-1970s.
… Jaime Munarriz – KSchultze70s70

For anyone who wants to understand what the point of synthesizer/electronic music is (it is not about taking Viagra and Ecstasy whilst having your brain mashed by some toneless Thud-Thud shit), I direct you to this track by my friend from Facebook Jaime Munárriz. Note the otherwordly quality of the sound layering and the tones of Moogs, Mellotrons and good Lowpass filtering fed through stereo delay effects. This is music of the cerebral landscape-mindscape-dreamscape tonal variety perfectly encapsulated in just over 4 minutes.
