Invoking imagery of a narrow, perhaps perilous passage, or its dual meaning, the back of the throat, musicians Amanda Irarrázabal and Miriam Ben Boer Salmón named their collaborative 10-track album, Fauces. In this recording, the duo plays with both concepts in a process of improvisation, creating fiercely lush landscapes, layered with texture, ragged hazy wood against strings. The soundscapes are sometimes imperceptible, shadowy horizons emerging from dim light, and rising, something threatening, sonic tensions cutting through the haze. Chilean double bassist Amanda Irarrázabal and Mexican-Dutch violinist Miriam den Boer Salmón recorded this project on a rainy day in Amsterdam, after meeting through Mexico City’s rich improvised music scene. Their shared love for the vast world of sounds, for adventure and traveling allowed them a creative partnership. Fauces is a debut on the label for both Amanda Irarrázabal and Miriam Den Boer Salmón, and will be available in both CD and digital format in July 2022.
An intruiguing mix of Jazz and Ambiant, of organic instruments and electronic sounds. It wanders a little, let's itself be influenced. It's not an easy listen, but it is very interesting. Thibaut Devigne
This album is absolutely on the mark! The best of what modular synth is capable of, plus a true spiritual feeling of the "griot" heritage, without aping anything. I'm more than impressed. So beautiful. wilsonnovitzki
A fantastic recording that documents the joy of two musicians I love for their unassuming way of playing together... Daniel Carter is one of the most underrated contemporary woodwind players, and Jessica Ackerley has brought back my enthusiasm for listening to guitar in recent time. jiristepan
