Anla Courtis ‎– Antofagasta cd

This is a collection of field recordings made by Anla Courtis during a 1998 trip to the volcanic area of Antofagasta De La Sierra in Argentina, covered with shrubs, as obvious from the pics. The sounds include various percussive-like ones (probably from the bells of sheep herded in the area?), the horns of trucks passing by the highways, and the wind lashing the dry landscape, all edited and reworked by Courtis to make a sonic impression of the ecosystem. It's a mostly loud but hypnotizing affair ideal for isolation in a sparsely-built area as the one that provided the inspiration for this amazing cd. 2016 cd on Beartown.
