Links

Based on the beating heart that Dr. Iriarte recorded in the 30s, Germán creates a unique sonic universe with mechanical instruments.
The playasax, chromatic rolmonica, barrel organ and the music box is attached to the handle of the hurdy-gurdy, and recording live loops to walk between improvisation and stiffness of punched cards.
