    ________________________________________________________
    Duermo despedazado por digitos. Me despierto en el no se donde con los cables cruzados, trenzados en un huango de cobre y caucho. Se me cruza el circuito corto, y el largo. me conecto, al vacio ese. pero la lluvia me erosiona el wifi y quedo aislado en mi binaria de ceros a la izquierda con solo un dedo indice para contar mi historia a dos lenguas.
    no hay nada mas anacrónico que el futuro, pero ahi viene.
    ___________________________________________________________
    de fiúcher es un album construido a base de síntesis análoga: La idea fue separar las sensaciones de la música andina de sus instrumentaciones tradicionales; a su vez apropiando instrumentaciones foráneas, para expresar la experiencia de vivir aqui. De ser este Yo. De existir en al menos dos mundos incomunicados. de esa melancolia sublime.
    experimentar a partir de lo que significa el futuro para un ciudadano latinoamericano en el siglo 21.
    un nuevo mestizaje, de tecnologias, ajenas como alguna vez fue la guitarra, que entran y se inmiscuyen en nuestros tejidos.
    Esta es una exploracion intuitiva del tapiz de mi propia identidad.
    __________________________________________________________
    I wake up in the binary and my eyes are tied. Wires crossed, woven into a braid of copper and rubber. short and long circuits cross. So I connect, to that emptiness, but the rain has eroded my wifi and im left isolated in my binary of zero sum games and two tongued histories, with only my index finger to do the telling.
    there's nothing more backward than the future. but here it comes.
    ________________________________________________________
    De fiúcher is 95% analog synthesis. The idea was to separate the sensations and experiences of living in the andes from its traditional instrumentations and aesthetics, and replacing these with appropriated instruments and language. I wanted to express the experience of living here for me as a latin american citizen in the 21st century. To think what "the future" really means to us, those who due to their place of birth, or their ethnic origins, don't really seem to have a choice in the matter. For a lot of us, technology just lands upon us and society sort of funnels us into using it, relentlessly. We lose our language, culture and music as we are flooded by foreign information that satisfies our data lust. We are subtly being colonized every day and this album is an abstract exploration of a dystopian future where somehow the spirit of culture manages to survive, albeit with radically different aesthetics and new and almost irecognizable mestizations. This is the beginning of an intuitive exploration of my own identity.

about

De fiúcher is iesterdei’s verllon ov tumorrou. Wen iu bicom baund bai stereotaips, wen de nois iu meik is controld bai de wei pipol si yu, yu ar lost. Auer culchur is a culchur of mestizayshon, of culchur clash, of culchur chock. ui jav everiting, yet ui uant uat dey jav, ui let let dem put os ol in wan Pandora steyshon. Dat is not Okey. Ui ar de infinit blend, ui ar di inconformist iuniti. Auer culcher is infecshos. Ui most expres wat it is to be as. to be multi tongd crichers in spectrum from ever berning fayers, tu reilling rivers ov rok. Dey never ask os wat we want de fiúcher tu luk laik. dey jos tel us come dis wei. or els. We jav no chois abaut de fiucher dey criayted. It was disayded bay oder pipol, and we ar expected to cowapereit. Ui liv on an imposibli gorllos strip of land, a continent rideld wid wayold mallic, exuberant llangols, and eynshent mauntens, pashon, pein, an vayolens. Auer culture is rich and dayvers, and wi refius to fit in yor box.

about

Quixosis Quito, Ecuador

Quixosis is lunar caustic for the third ear. A state in which one can only settle for the unattainable.
cinematic music, ecuadorian sound magic, sleep and dream lube, love and noise. a delicate edge.
