CHRISTIAN GALARRETA´S SUPERMUSIC



Some years ago, the distinguished Peruvian experimental musician Christian Galarreta left our country to search new horizons coming just with his outstanding talent as a  support. After making  a stop in Mexico, Galarreta  now lives between France and Holland, he´s resident of  one of the most prestigious centers of the old continent  focalized on sound/art/ experimental music/computer music, the Institute of Sonology, he performed concerts, workshops, he makes installations and several investigations and performances in Madrid, Barcelona, Berlin, Viena , Varsovia, Paris, etc. He has shared scenery and experiences in Festivals and small concerts with diverse people such as Ilpo Väisänen of the wonderful PAN SONIC or Damo Susuki of the well known  krautrockers CAN to quote just a couple of names. In addition his discography must have reached a hundred devices under his name or the multifaceted projects done with his diverse friends, among whom I have the honor to be accompanied  with diverse Peruvian , Latin American , and European transgressors:  Miasma, Tica, Evamuss, Diosmehaviolado, Garrapata, Azucena Kántrix, Ninguna Ninfula, 50 Otages, etc. These  CD´s were published in underground or independents Peruvian and Latin labels as well as European net labels and record companies such as : Sub Rosa, Clinical Archives, Autres Directions in Music, etc. None of these has never been distinguished by the local mass media, which wants to harass the masses and the local music lovers, with old cultured people  of outstanding  speech – simply  ordinary rockers- or  the exponent of the last arty fashion  foolery on the international circuit.




Galarreta have just launched some days ago a compilation disc which joins together some of his work dated between 2004-2011 and you could download it here:

Best reason to upload in the peruavantgarde  blog , the review I made for my final exam of the Cultural Journalism curse in the University of Lima back in the year 2009.


Enjoy!



EAT A FLOWER



Christian Galarreta is the best secret kept of the Peruvian music for decades. In spite of his youth he possess a name and prestige that has given him a seat of honor among the selected  avant-garde circles of the planet,  do you want  to know why?

Arriving to Galarreta`s (33) house located in the dangerous district  called Rimac in Lima, where one could feel in the skin that real will of power of some of our compatriots which have achieved laughing at the adversity, I can`t avoid relate it  to all what he represents: in the 90´s he conformed  the ethereal and post-rocker collective from Lima: Crisálida Sonica, with his rock and noise band Diosmehaviolado. “At that time -he tells us- I used to wear different colors of shoes, the walls of my place were all written with phrases, and the drummer which I used to play with, Aldo Castillejos, saw what I wrote on the wall, a kind of poem, and chose that phrase for the name of the band , that’s how  the name was taken”. In 1997 he already has a new project called Evamuss, which is considered  by many of the avant-garde Peruvian youngsters as a pioneer in this latitude of the electronic experimental non-academic music.



By those days,  few people could bet that this artist, who at the beginning flirted with the  National Conservatory from where he leaved disappointed by the backwardness of the institution  and the  teachers; would be considered, years later, one of the most regarded Latin American experimental musician.

Galarreta has just arrived after a 12 months stay in Aztec lands where he travelled after being one of the winners of the award in 2008 hold by the CENART to his inventive sonic installation called AMARUS, in the frame of the first exhibition of Ibero American art. In 2007 he was in Europe and visited many locations from Spain, Germany, and France besides getting along with some of the members of the cream in contemporaneous experimental music, such as: Francisco López, Zbigniew Karkowski –both had visited Perú courtesy of  Fundación Telefónica-, Julien Ottavi, et. alii.

But for Christian these accumulation of distinctions are careless. While we chat in Christian´s  small kitchen inside its apartment accompanied by the Argentinian duo Termotank, who have come  to Peru for the ASIMTRIA festival in Arequipa, Cuzco and Lima, he explains: “as they said the other day -he speaks of a work shop done in ASIMTRIA- this is for brave men, at the end you stay alone even though people get close because of fashion, before it was post rock, then electronic music and nowadays its fashion because of  sonic art.




Peru is a paradox and contradictory land, there`s no doubt. Today   the most inquiring youngsters of Huancayo, La Oroya and Arequipa are giving their soul with passion to a new way to make art with sound without regarding the parameters conceived by the  old European aristocracy centuries ago; however the majority of the young rock music critics seem to consider, in a obscenely  dumb way, experimental music just as a  sickness.

That perception is more likely to be detected in Peru, while in other places such as Argentina, Spain, Russia or Mexico, the work of artists like Galarreta are widely accepted and appreciated in its fair measure. Not long ago Christian realized that one of his musical pieces had been included in an anthology published by the renowned Belgian label Sub Rosa, focalized  in electronic music and noise, together with luminaries as the American Charlemagne Palestine and the Japanese noise performer Massimo. To all of this Galarreta just adds : “I`ve always been related with sound and music  because that’s the way I can be, I can`t find another way… if I don’t do this, I die, I could not  breath or I will leave to make shit this fucked up world….”




Behind have remained  his flirts with shoegaze, ambient, IDM and more avant-garde`s trends, or his admiration for artists like John Cage, Karlheinz Stockhausen, or the impressive Italian futurist Luigi  Russolo; far behind lie the long seasons in hell surrounded by  his class mates at Salesianos, San Marco´s poets or his neighbors friends for example the omnipresent “negro Walter”. Even genius like Nietzche, Novalis and Eielson have left trace in a soul sculpted by the Markahuasi´s winds and the ethereal visions caused by the sunsets in Lima, the sublime.

Maybe in this moment Christian Galarreta is preparing  his baggage to return to Mexico, where new and profitable artistic proposals, that by coincidence or disgrace, the institutions of his own country are unable to formulate, or maybe he is just locked up in his room listening carefully  to some outstanding  noisy CD, or just he may be walking through the Rimac district captivated by the chaotic atmosphere which absorbs at every step in a city where, already in the 21century is able to produce those natures without asking permission to no one. Kind reader, let it happen to you!

The beautiful people of Canadian-Ukranian alternative dreamy pop act UMMAGMA have been very active over the past few weeks and now they have revealed a remix created for their hit "Lama" by San Francisco dark wave musician Jane Woodman.

10 PERUVIAN SONGS TO HAVE SEX WITH THE SUN

image

….OR TO BE WITH YOUR BEST LIBATION OR THE MOST OBSCENE OF THE BUTTERFLIES

In   this list, the most visionary and psycotropical musics, are represented;  created by Peruvians  who  used the better part of  themselves:  their mind, their being,  their soul, to give to  our  country the following  gems which  worth, in my opinion, as much as  the gold taken by Spaniards- and that they seem to take  away again , hello?. Nevertheless, almost everyone in the scene   is not known by the great public, maybe focalized on puppets and the way the poorness of the mass media entertains them, a bunch of bands who don’t  contribute anything.

However, as Novalis use to say, one of the 90´s avant-garde scene model around these latitude, Crisálida Sonica: EVERYTHING SEEMS TO DESCEND BECAUSE WE DON’T RISE.

1. EVAMUSS: Xul (1998) This beautiful   Evamuss piece, done by a young  Christian Galarreta is at the same  time the more  sacred, saint and  contemporary, that  has been ever composed in our lands. Disagree? Listen to this gem and tell me if you don’t feel millenarian vibrations in your soul.



2. SILVANIA: Niño Unicornio (1994) Pure peak and sonic ecstasies by the hand of Mario and Coco, Silvania. One piece of   its amazing  “Paisaje III “ (Elefant 1994)- it should be reedited- done  for a captivating listening. Beautiful coloristic   video courtesy of Mario.


3. WILDER GONZALES AGREDA: Los Olivos 3 a.m. An astral and hypnotic   piece  of my authorship . All treat which doesn’t elevate, falls down.


4. LECHE PLUS: Two Blue Horses 666 . Simple awesome. One of the  better songs  of Leche Plus. Really we,  the Peruvians are privileged people by  having bands of this type and height, within us. We expect  with enthusiasm more  from Leche Plus, Jonathan!


5. XTREDAN: Norte (2012) Home town in la Oroya,  the advanced electronic project Xtredan gave us one of the best Peruvian music production of the last decade, the Martian and great “Fly ep”. The sounds in which, even today, Dante Izaguirre oscilates stay the same as cosmic, something that surely do make us feel thrill. Continue flying!!!



6. DREAMWORKS: Lost track (2012) One  of the last projects which have better embody the alchemy of the guitar noise and melodies in our country is  Dreamworks, they’ve just got this track to show but it is so majestic and sublime that it leaves you  with honey in  your mind and the heart risen to everyone who listens this. In its sound I can listen genial influences such as Astrobite, Orange Cake Mix, Durrutti Column. Let´s go Dreamworks  for more  heaven and more flourish!!

Dreamworks - Lost track from Siam Liam J. I. on Vimeo.

7. SALOMON JEDIDIAS: Rebel On You/Keep Up – Mantente Firme . (2009)… From now on a classic in Peruvian neo-psychedelics. “Rebel on  you” is the track which initiate  the opera prima from the genial Rafael Diaz- factotum of Salomón Jedidias- where Suicide´s Alan Vega and Liam Maher from Flowered up   unite to give birth to a superb creation where madness and sound will intend to chase you and make  disappear your boring  job  routine and pseudo  western embourgeoisement  through ecstasies and (non) sense of a  beautiful music  as  few as  they are in  this country. Long life to Salomon  Jedidias & Space rock!


8. ESPIRA: Cielo de Azul Y Ensueño (1996) Divine gem of the  preciosity   period  of Espira, formed by  Miguel Angel “chino “ Burga (today  in  “La  Ira de Dios”)   and  Aldo Castillejos (today in Serpentina Satélite) and Renzo Lari who will later form “Las Vacas de Wisconsin”, those the Cure brand guitars, those sound signed by a Flock of Seagulls, those shoegazer voices very representative of the age, showing us that we are in the presence of a formation  called to  make history in this country plenty of  garbage rock stars. Great  Espira!


9. GIRÁLEA: Prisión (1999). Ah Giralea….. Carlos Mariño lead Giralea when  he  was under 18 and  with his Crisalida Sonica´s  colleagues drafted some of the most beautiful  and ethereal songs of the age in South America. However, in 1998 Giralea was a Carlo´s individual project  and  that’s how the demo tape was done, from where we get this genial piece which is a  reliable reflex where almost everyone  in Crisalida Sónica feeled in  that time. Taking too much Loop, too much Forever Alien, too much Suicide, very much Fixing to die…. In one word :REVOLUTION!!!!!!!


 


10: HIPNOASCENSIÓN: Piedra Flotante (2005) This list ends with one of the biggest compositions of  Peruvian music history, the author prefers to keep anonymous  because he repulses society and its comedy and its farce but his music speaks for  him and this is really a music worthy of millenarian gods. Words are only words, so   listen and be more real than real. Thanks Chuko Peñaloza. Hahahha!!!

Reseña: MY BLOODY VALENTINE - mbv (2013)



Tras 22 años después de "Loveless" (1991) los comandados por Kevin Shields finalmente publicaron su esperado "tercer" disco. En "mbv" vemos a un Shields que no ha perdido mucho de su talento para componer sublimes melodías y hermosas paredes de guitarras y efectos. Hay varios efectos y artilugios que resultan bellos de escuchar en el álbum. Pero, por desgracia, el discurso musical de Shields hoy parece venido de una época entre el "Isn't Anything" y el "Loveless": la mayoría de sus canciones son una puesta al día de los logros de su viejo disco "Ecstasy" (1986), la alucinante parafernalia avantgarde de "Loveless" luce no solo no ha sido incrementada e innovada sino que está ausente en "mbv" y ese detalle después de 22 años es casi un delito para un genio como él.



Algunos en las redes han dicho que, atento a la moda actual por el shoegaze o nu-gaze, Shields optó por lo seguro e hizo un calco de sí mismo. Ya saben, billete manda. Otros han señalado que "mbv" contiene material circa 1994 y que lo realmente actual de My Bloody Valentine recién lo escucharemos cuando Kevin Shields continúe publicando.



My Bloody Valentine suena ahora a Astrobrite, podría ser una sentencia entre los círculos avantgarde más enterados. Y vaya que las invenciones de Scott Cortez (Lovesliescrushing/Astrobrite) son realmente alucinantes y no se restringen al formato shoegaze harto trillado. Personalmente prefiero las creaciones del peruano SAJJRA a este nuevo "mbv", están más a la avanzada e incluso son más brillantemente etéreas. Esperemos a que el buen Kevin surja con algo innovador soon. Ojalá no más no se tome otros 22 años.

A.M.P. Interviú - AÑO 2006


Los fabulosos avant rockers ingleses de A.M.P. estuvieron en la agenda de la prensa especializada en vanguardia musical desde la segunda mitad de los años 90's hasta incluso la década pasada. Su sonido, una etérea amalgama sónica de proporciones voluptuosas, recogía influencias de gente tan dispar como Amon Düül, Spacemen 3, Cocteau Twins o Silver Apples. A propósito de la edición de su disco del año 2005, el hermoso "US", tuve la oportunidad de entrevistarlos vía e-mail, charla que comparto hoy con los lectores del blog PerúAvantgarde.


Responden Karine Charff & Richard Walker.

Ustedes empezaron tocando en bandas tan memorables como Flying Saucer Attack o Third Eye Foundation, ¿Podrían contarnos algunas historias de aquella época? ¿Cómo se hicieron amigos de Dave Pearce o Matt Elliot por ejemplo?

KARINE: Richard asistía al colegio con Dave Pearce, Dave nos presentó a Matt Elliot. Es un hecho que Matt formó Third Eye Foundation después de grabar con AMP, y Flying Saucer Attack se formó después de que Dave escuchó “Green Sky Blue Tree” de AMP allá por 1992.

Su disco de 2005, “Us”, suena como una versión moderna de los sonidos del krautrock. La música de “Us” aparece como un Ash Ra Tempel más avanzado mezclado con voces a lo Amon Düül II. Es bien evidente que ustedes aman esas atmósferas krautrockers, ¿podrían decirnos cuáles son sus bandas de krautrock favoritas? ¿Cuánto tiempo les llevó crear y grabar este álbum? ¿Todos en AMP participan en la composición? ¿Cómo sucede la misma?

K: La mayor parte de la composición está hecha por Richard, con los otros miembros contribuyendo aquí y allá. “US” nos tomo dos años en hacerse y grabarse, nuestras bandas krautrock favoritas: Popol Vuh, Can, Faust, Amon Düül II son todas geniales.

Desde su ultimo disco (L’Amour Invisible, 2002) hasta Us, ha pasado algún tiempo. ¿Qué le pasó a Amp entre estos años?

RICHARD & KARINE: Verás, hicimos un par de tours por Europa y escribimos y grabamos “US” y Richard visitó América un tiempo, para inspirarse y volcarlo en el álbum “US”. Puede llevar un largo período hacer un disco, especialmente si estás tratando de ser diferente cada vez.

¿Qué nuevas bandas de la escena recomiendan?

R & K : No nos gustaría decirlo realmente, las recomendaciones son un poco sin sentido porque todo es relativo, especialmente en campos subjetivos. Pero, a Karine y Richard realmente le gustan Hanging Freud un banda anglo-brasileña que nos encontró en MySpace... otros grupos son nuestros actuales colaboradores Kiosk y The Summer Sang, también dignos de ver en MySpace. 

Sabemos que ustedes han hecho colaboraciones con ambos, Sonic Boom (de Spacemen 3, Spectrum y E.A.R.) and Robert Hampson (de Loop y Main). Es un secreto a voces que estos hombres no se pueden ver debido a una vieja rencilla. Son grandes artistas ellos. ¿Pudieron saber que pasó entre esta gente? 

R & K: No, no realmente. Ninguno de ellos gusta de hablar del otro. A Robert se le ven puñales en sus ojos cuando Sonic Boom es mencionado. Y Pete Kember parece tener más antipatía por Jason Spaceman (a.k.a. Spiritualized) que por Robert Hampson. Creemos que es una rivalidad que se ha ido fermentando, y no estamos interesados en tales historias.



¿Cuál es su opinión en el tópico de las drogas? ¿Emplean drogas?

R & K: Las drogas son útiles algunas veces, la mayoría de la gente consume drogas de una clase u otra desde el café hasta la coca. En realidad todos los alimentos actúan como una droga en tu cuerpo pues se dividen en varios componentes químicos.

¿Cuál es su opinión de la escena actual?

R & K: La escena musical es refrescantemente diversa en el terreno underground, pero depresivamente aburrida en el campo del mainstream.


Ustedes participaron in tan memorables discos tributo como el de Silvel Apples, “Electronic Evocations”, o el tributo a Spacemen 3. ¿Hay más de esta clase de proyectos en el futuro cercano de Amp? ¿Cómo fueron contactados por la gente que hizo estos discos tributo?

R & K: No hay nada como ello en nuestro horizonte, pero habrá una compilación en Mind Expansion Records de los Estados Unidos, la cual saldrá a mas tardar este año y estaremos junto a bandas como Bardo Pond entre otras.

Bien, ha sido un placer contactarnos con ustedes. ¿Tienen algo que les gustaría decir a sus fans de Perú?

R & K: Perú es un hermoso país en todos los sentidos, adoraríamos tocar allá alguna vez un día. One Love.



Fabulous English avant rockers A.M.P. were in the agenda of the press specialized in the avantgarde from the second half of the 90's up to even last decade. Their sound, an ethereal sonic amalgam of voluptuous proportions, gathered influences from people as unlike as Amon Düül, Spacemen 3, Cocteau Twins or Silver Apples. About the edition of their disc of the year 2005, the beautiful "US", I had the opportunity to interview them via e-mail, chat that I share today with the readers of the PerúAvantgarde blog.

Answers by Karine Charff & Richard Walker.

You started playing in such memorable bands as Flying Saucer Attack or Third Eye Foundation, could you tell us some stories of that epoch? How did you become friends of Dave Pearce or Matt Elliot for example?

KARINE: Richard was at college with Dave Pearce, Dave introduced us to Matt Elliot. It is a fact that Matt formed Third Eye Foundation after recording with AMP. and Flying Saucer Attack was formed after Dave heard AMP's Green Sky Blue Tree back in 1992. 

Your disc of 2005, "Us", sounds as a modern version of the sounds of the krautrock. The music of "Us" appears as a more advanced Ash Ra Tempel mixed with voices ala Amon Düül II. It is well evident that you love these krautrock atmosphere, could you say which are krautrock favorites? How many time took you to create and to record this album? Did they all in AMP take part in the composition? How does it happen?

K: Most of the writing is by Richard, with the other members contributing here and there. "US" took two years to make and record, our favorite Krautrock... well, Popul Vuh, Can, Faust, Amon Dull II are all cool. 

From your last disc (L'Amour Invisible, 2002) to Us, some time has happened. What did happen to Amp between these years?

RICHARD & KARINE: Well, we did a couple of tours in Europe and wrote and recorded "US" and Richard visited America for a bit, for inspiration that went into the "US" album.It can take a long time to make a record, especially if you are trying to be different everytime. 

What new bands of the scene do you reccomend?

R & K:  we would not like to say really, recommendations are a bit meanningless because everything is relative, especially subjective fields. But, Karine and Richard really like "Hanging Freud" a Anglo/Brazilian band who found us on MySpace...and our current collaborators bands "Kiosk" and "The Summer Sang". Also on myspace worth checking out. 



We know you have done collaborations with both, Sonic Boom (of Spacemen 3, Spectrum and E.A.R.) and Robert Hampson (of Loop and Main). It is a secret to voices that these men cannot see each other due to an old discord. They are big artists. Could you know what happened between them?

R & K: No, not really. Neither of these guys like to talk about each others.
Robert draws daggers with his eyes when Sonic Boom is mentioned. And Pete Kember seems to have more vitriol for Jason Spaceman than for Robert Hampson.We guess it is all rivalry gone sour. And we are not interested in such stories

What is your opinion on the drugs topic? Do you do drugs?

R & K: They are useful sometimes, most people consume drugs of one kind or another from coffee to coke. In fact all food acts like a drug in your body as it breaks downs into the various chemicals. 

What is your opinion on nowadays music scene?

R& K : The music scene is refreshingly diverse in the undergrowth, but depressingly dull in the mainstream. 



You took part in such memorable tribute discs as that of Silver Apples, "Electronic Evocations", or the Tribute to Spacemen 3. Is there more of this kind of projects in the nearby future for Amp? How were you  contacted by the people who did these discs?

R & K: There is nothing like these on the horizon for us, but there is a compilation on Mind Expansion Records of the USA which is coming out later this year and we will be on along with the likes of Bardo Pond et al. 

It has been our pleasure. Do you have some words for your fans in Perú?

R & K:  Peru is a beautiful country by all account, we would love to play some day one day. One Love.
