Falling deep in to the sonic matter,
the noise that surrounds us
and the noise that emerges from
within us, I long for the natureâ€˜s lost poetry.

I AM OBSESSED WITH SOUNDING INVISIBLE CREATURES THAT LIVE IN FORGOTTEN â€žWATER FOR FIREâ€œ TANKS IN THE MIDDLE OF THE FOREST. BOWING AN ABANDONED CARDBOARD BOX. LISTENING TO UNDERWATER POLLUTION. BURYING MICS IN THE GRAVEL. RELEASING THE SPIRITS OF A METAL FENCE WITH THE SIMPLE TOUCH OF A CONTACT MIC. EMBRACING NATURE. KNITTING WITH HARMONICS. PLAYING AS IF SOUND WERE CLAY. LISTENING AS THOUGH MY MIND WERE THE CURRENT IN AN OCEAN.

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 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, treesâ€¦).
In Mapudungun, Nag Mapu means the earth on which we stand.
