In the summer of 2011, I wrote to Francisco López to ask him whether he would be interested in working together on a project. He agreed but on condition that we worked on two separate tracks but using the same sound sources. These sound sources could be processed any way we liked, or even used in their original form, so as to highlight the aural roots of the tracks while at the same time exposing our different sonic approach. LUCA SIGURTÀ The end result is a split album comprised of two very different tracks, which are nonetheless built around the same original material. The tracks could be described as a suite, divided in movements, of around 20 minutes each, which allow for the specific characteristics of the two musicians to emerge. Sigurtà delves primarily into drone-based territories drawing sonic landscapes oscillating between the ethereal and the concrete, often harboring a beat whereas López works with and within the minutiae of sound, penetrating into the most intricate textures and creating rhythmic patterns with glitches and fragments of sound, while keeping to a well defined and steady musical path. The Sigurtà / López split sees two generations, two worlds and two different approaches to music coming together on one single album. one single album.
