Mineral Abstraction by Zreen Toyz
Original net-releases by AMP Records (Mexico) & Buddhist On Fire (USA).
"I am not particularly an amateur of speleology, but I like the big natural caves for their beauty and their huge acoustics. Between 2001 and 2008, I made a series of recordings in these subterranean spaces, choosing places with rivers.
I constituted a sound library of natural atmospheres and I also used electronic and electroacoustic sounds spread by speakers, then recorded by microphones placed in various galleries and under the vaults of the big caves.
In 2010, I used this sound collection to make a gigantic collage which will become, after numerous edits, the album Mineral Abstraction"
