Ruido abajo

«The purpose of generating this album “Ruido abajo” is, in a certain way, to try to empty the urban noise and raise the noise of nature, which is a permanent task.

This work does not seek to replicate human perception, it aims to bring the listener the sound of places he does not imagine exists in the fifth region of Chile (forests, caves, waterfalls, causes, among others).

What we hear on this album is not just natural noise, since the recording device also adds its own noise, which is what we receive/perceive at the moment of capturing this record. In rural areas we can become more aware of the acoustic environment when those high urban decibels have dropped, when our ears are emptied of those saturations of noise environment of the city, to then hear a "hum", now yes, more attenuated.

At this point we will be able to differentiate beeps and buzzes that are the noise and its various timbres. It is as if things came out of the water and became visible. If the water level of a cause drops, the stones that were covered by the water will be seen. Noise and sounds they're always there, they're just masked by the high urban decibels of traffic, its crowd and many other diverse things of human activity. Not to mention the damage to our auditory apparatus, we live with this constant limitation of the urban, that goes beyond the thresholds of our biological conformation, or, it is something that is out of our reach.

This is how through the days, in rural spaces that saturation (of 'hum' and 'hiss' from urban areas) slowly decreases. The low decibels of the rural environment bring us closer to the noise that is intrinsic in what we call “silence”. This, and if we assume culturally that silence tries to silence the human being, Miles Davis couldn't have said it better: "Silence is noise. Maximum".»
