Behrens, Marc & Paulo Raposo – “Hades ” – [and/OAR]
Collaborative field recordings recontextualized into a four part phonography travelogue spanning 2001???2005 realized in Spain and Portugal at the quays of Cais do Sodr?? and aboard ferry boats. Originally intending to record indepdently, but being fascinated with the same environmental and mechanical sounds, the pair redirected their efforts together, conceiving their travels as symbolic of crossing the mythic river Styx to enter Hades. Following several shifts in texture and dimension, this recording joins together delicate, quiet moments and an equally hypnotic stratum of carefully arranged dronechaos.
