THN083 >> ALTA INFIDELIDAD - CACTUS Y VOLCANES
      [18.01.2006 | TRIPPY CHILEAN MINIMALISM]

Mediterranean climate occurs on the western coasts of 
continental landmasses, roughly between the latitudes of 30° 
and 45° north and south of the equator. Examples include much 
of California and certain parts of southwestern Oregon, 
Western Australia, Cape Province in South Africa, the 
Mediterranean Basin itself and of course Chile. The country 
occupies a long coastal strip between the Andes mountains and 
the Pacific Ocean. When it is Winter in Europe, it is hot 
summer in Chile.

The northern Atacama desert contains great mineral wealth, 
primarily copper and nitrates. The relatively small Central 
Valley, which includes Santiago, dominates the country in terms 
of population and agricultural resources. This area also is 
the historical center from which Chile expanded in the late 
19th century, when it integrated the northern and southern 
regions. Southern Chile is rich in forests and grazing lands 
and features a string of volcanoes and lakes. The southern 
coast is a labyrinth of fjords, inlets, canals, twisting 
peninsulas, and islands. The Andes Mountains are located on 
the eastern border.

Yes, Chile definately is a beautiful and exciting spot on earth 
that today is more vibrant than ever - for electronic minimalism 
it goes, at least. The electronic music scene in Chile has 
developed - and expanded - quickly in the past years and a 
couple of artists have taken the leap and get released on 
international labels. No, we're not talking about the merits of 
the exile-Chileans Ricardo or Luciano, what we have here are 
two of the most ambitious artists of that country gathering on 
this special cooperation release: Alta Infidelidad, a 
cooperation between Receptor (Jorge Cortes) and Christian Dittmann.

Receptor lives and works in Santiago de Chile, where he has 
founded the local Ojo de Apolo Label in 1997. They did 
several releases and events with that label and its members 
(Bios, Danieto, Spin). Nowadays Receptor represents his music 
outside Chile by playing live in Argentina and also in Europe. 
His sound recently received attention by several vinyllabels - 
in 2005 the label Plong! from Cologne released a 12? called 
“Countdown for Eliza” and the italian label Citymorb released 
another 12? called ”Moving Head". For 2006 more Receptor vinyl 
releases are coming in on a diversity of labels, for example 
the Sushitech label from Israel (on which he will appear as 
“Autómata”); Mule Musiq (Japan) and the recent EP for Winsome 
Music, another german label. Not to forget about his releases 
on the RealAudio and Comatronic netlabels!

His partner in crime for this release, Christian Dittmann, is 
an active dj and regularly spins records across various 
chilean clubs. He has had a first release on Pheek's excellent 
Archipel label (archipel.cc) in autumn 2005 and surely will 
have a string of new stuff out in 2006. Compared to Receptors 
music, his stuff is much more an eccentric carpet of sequenced 
sound snippets, framed in 4/4 patterns.

For this release, Alta Infidelidad team up to compress their 
associative, trippy sound on and on, with continously compact 
melody fragments over soundeffects. At times they let 
soundeffects run against each other and have the sample elements 
communicating with each other in a virtuose way. 

While the tracks of Receptor are clean and sparse they appear 
as almost static motions inside wooden, yet driving minimalist 
patterns. By times his clinic scapes might awake reminiscences 
to Sahkö and Raster Noton aethetics but, of course, they are 
much more techno than that. 

On the other side we have the antagonist tracks by Christian 
Dittmann, which are full with minimal percussive spinneries in 
a rich versatile mix that make you wonder how he manages to 
develop a track out of the pumping seizing intro huddles. An 
endless stream, apparently not vehemently aligned on purpose, slowly develops frequent dreaming undertones, that absorb 
oneself within the strangest area, where tension won't reduce 
to a lesser extent, no matter if the end is a wafted pad or 
simply the most reduced grooves. Start and finish are hardly 
recognizeable and the dancefloor barely is in sight, but 
apparently the intoxicated drifting thereafter becomes visible. 

The arrangements are fragile, volatile and less than ever appear 
to obey linearity as a flux of jammed ideas, shortly shifted 
soundexplosions and rhythmic displacements. The tracks pulsate 
like in an endless flush aimlessly through the rooms in the 
broadest sense. Worlds and intensities, at times they are 
textures and again, haunting. The peculiar attention roams 
above the tracks and gets stuck here and there, takes an 
immersion bath and engrosses from the popping sounds. You 
might think: Odd descriptions. But this is how these tracks 
interact - A bipolar team play, an allegory similar as the 
reach from north and south of the chilean country. Although it 
feels dry and dusty by times, the soul within is deep and emotional.
