Adormidera

released November 22, 2014

Adormidera” is the Spanish word for poppy flower. This tape, originally released as a very limited tour souvenir, has two long pieces crafted with circular melodies. 70’s and 80’s cassette tapes were used during the recordings.

The first piece “Niebla, montaña, pinos” is a transcription of a dream where a choir of girls sung to celebrate the harvest. I made it with very lo-fi recordings from Youtube.

The second piece is “Adormidera” in which I also used layers of voices, acoustic guitar and piano.
