CICADA's eponymous debut album, mixed by legendary techno producer and DJ Oscar Mulero, offers a dreamlike journey in which electronic and acoustic instruments act as vehicles used to traverse a path full of crossroads and ever changing slopes.
Bridging gaps between media, disciplines, techniques and technologies, their carefully devised sound offers a mapless exploration through elements and milestones that bolster our most hermetic past with our most cryptic present.
Picture Steve Hauschildt’s flotation ambient. Picture the post-techno school of Dominic Fernow. And above all, picture the nuances of minimal techno and a a splash of sheer analog sound.
Engrossing drones, winding viola loops and tight polyrhythms form an invitation to transit between different states of consciousness, in an intense itinerary that ranges from abstraction and introspection to ecstatic, atavic dance.
Sara Muñiz: viola, piano, vocals
Jose A. Rilla: synths, piano, vocals.
