Ricardo Alvarez - sax; Radek Rudnicki - electronics
Collaboration between Radek Rudnicki and Ricardo Alvarez. Music is inspired by South Andean folk featuring field recordings from Tirana celebrations at Atacama desert, where Ricardo Alvarez travelled, and gathered source material for the compositions.
Kirki Project is exploring new sonorities for sax and electronics through improvisation inspired by this aesthetic. Heavy beat-based electronica fused with improvised sax melodies draw from this festival full of life, joy and intensity. The album and live set structure is based on the festival with four main movements. The arrival (Ya vamos llegando), square, pilgrimage and farewell.
