MINA LAS PINTADAS

Recorded inside an active copper mine in the Atacama region of Northern Chile, Changing Landscapes (Mina Las Pintadas) is an enthralling record of pulsing and psychologically exploratory soundscapes. Deep grooves tunnel through tones and sonic textures, following subterranean and psychic pathways, alternately narrowing and widening while heavily processed flute treads over aesthetic stepping stones like Jon Hassell and Holger Czukay. The rhythms of “Terra Amarilla” and “La Farola” wouldn’t be out of place on My Life in the Bush of Ghosts. And the overall timbre, the organic-as-synthesized nature will find a welcome home in the hearts of anyone who loves these artists.
