[CP 000.04 CD] Oscar Vargas Leal, David Espejo Aviles, Juan Carrillo; Cromo Metrofonia No. 1, Cometa 1973
This was the fourth of the ca. 2003 "Proto Creel Pone" titles made for the "Extremely Frustrating" installation (something of a Reckankomplex-centric "NWW List" in & of itself) featuring both variants/pressings of this gorgeous 1973 Mexican Discos Pax LP suite of music made on Oscar Vargas Leal & David Espejo Aviles' Quarter-Tone instruments, created with the aid/guidance of Composer Juan Carrillo.
It may surprise you to learn that the focus this early on was not solely on Early Electronic Music as it later became; in fact, a fair majority of these early attempts came from more of a Sound Art / Experimental Instrument / Private Minimalism bent, as witnessed by the swarm of detuned acoustic harmonics across both pieces herein, the result of Leal & Aviles' experiments in building a pair of gigantic microtonal, essentially, Cimbaloms/Harps...
Incredible music, clearly in the canon of "Holy Minimalism" and/or "String Drone," and other than Aki Onda's efforts as of recent, Carillo is an oft-neglected figure that deserves wider respect; hence the resuscitation of this "Proto" Creel Pone.
