Lauki is a Barcelona-based sound designer with a penchant for modern classical music and generative multimedia art. The coordiantes of 69º54´S-135º12´E point somewhere along the coast of Wilkes Land, Antarctica, to what Lauki describes as "the polar desert, another frontier of our planetary existence, a territory where only fools and heroes dare to go." The music on this recording manipulates classical instruments, including Heike Grafe's guest violin part on "Deconstrucción," through digital processing.
Despite the record's sensation of a glacial stillness, it is a quick listen. Such is the nature of every release on Audio Gourmet, a UK-based netlabel specializing in records "that can be listened to in full during a standard working tea-break."
From Lauki's Bandcamp: 69º54´S-135º12´E - Coordinates scribbled on a map, lost, then recovered in the world of dreams. In the coldest region, the promise of breaking through the inner ice. The polar desert, another frontier of our planetary existence, a territory where only fools and heroes dare to go.
