julie rousse, nag mapu (esperando la lluvia suite), framework editions 2018
this is the second of 3 regular editions featuring our new framework:seasonal release, issue #10, autumn 2018. this week we take a listen to julie rousse‘s contribution, nag mapu (esperando la lluvia suite). julie has this to say about he work:
Nag Mapu is the result of a research work around the Mapuche (first nation of Chile) culture. Their music is ritualistic, rhythmic and improvised around the natural sonic elements at play during the ritual. The whole suite of the research is called Esperando la Lluvia (Waiting for the Rain).
I have developed a performance with electromagnetic captors, field recordings and computer. During a residency in Cesare National Centre for Musical Creation (Reims, 2016), i have made several recordings of improvisations, this piece is one of them.
The electromagnetic captors are the main source of sound and represent the link between the body in performing movements and the earth. Other sonic materials come from recordings of the principal elements (wind, rain, sea, trees…).
In Mapudungun, Nag Mapu means the earth on which we stand.
along with this long work we listened to recent releases by kajsa lindgren (lp and dl), chris whitehead & mark browne (dl), nigel baldacchino (unreleased), sounds from the aporee maps, and a framework introduction by dillon vessels.
