Modern Classical and Generative Art Shape Lauki’s Antartica Dreamscape

Lauki is a Barcelona-based sound designer with a penchant for modern classical music and generative multimedia art.

The coordinates of 69º54´S-135º12´E point somewhere along the coast of Wilkes Land, Antarctica. Lauki describes  “the polar desert, another frontier of our planetary existence, a territory where only fools and heroes dare to go.” On this recording, Lauki’s digital processing manipulates classical instruments—including Heike Grafe’s guest violin part on “Deconstrucción”—to shape the ambient dreamscape of a frozen world.

Despite the record’s sensation of a glacial stillness, it is a quick 15-minute listen. Such is the nature of every release on Audio Gourmet, a UK-based netlabel cooking up releases “that can be listened to in full during a standard working tea-break.”
