“This new collaboration between guitarists and composers Álvaro Domene and Dane Johnson aims to explore the possibilities of electric guitar-generated sounds to create a sonic tapestry of granular textures, glitch, drones, and electronic soundscapes influenced by the works of Xenakis, Scelsi, Autechre, and La Monte Young. Their repertoire features a mixture of algorithmic and spontaneous compositions full of nuance, high density, and forward motion, on which they treat sound much like a living organism, rather than simply a means to an end. Their new album will be released early next year by Iluso Records”
