“I don’t like this whole notion of a ‘persona’, or celebrity-like questions. The music should do all the talking; everyone else can make their own story and put their own value on it. Much like when you see a film or go to the theatre.” That’s how elusive Rafael Anton Irisarri was when answering some of the questions of our colleague Vidal Romero a few months ago. If you want to know more about his personality, influences, dual projects (as you know the man uses both his own name and the moniker The Sight Below) and Irisarri’s future projects, check that interview.
With the introductions done, we now come to tell you that Irisarri has just uploaded a “live album” to his Bandcamp page which includes four long pieces –between abyss-like drone noise, crepuscular ambient and neo-classical exercises- recorded live over the past two years in London, Seattle, Milan and Krakow. The album, one hour long, can be downloaded at a price you see fit (it can be free, although the number of free downloads is limited) here. As a bonus we leave you with a second player after the jump, featuring two improvised pieces by Irisarri and Fennesz, both recorded last year when the two artists played together at Decibel and Interferenze festivals. Time to float.
