Foxy Digitalis Mix #11: bahía mansa

One of my favorite projects I’ve learned about this year is Chile’s bahía mansa. As I’ve dug deeper into his sound and history, a whole world of experimental music from South America emerged.

Bahía Mansa “botánica del olvido”

Chile’s Bahía Mansa (Iván Aguayo) caught my attention with his meandering environmental journey, La Orilla en la Que Habito, but his newest effort, botánica del olvido, is an even more memorable aural portrait. Aguayo’s music is baked in nature, adorned with pastoral field recordings of the wind blowing through trees, gentle rain, and chipper birds all accompanying layers of emotionally rich ambient tones. In certain passages on botánica … Continue reading Bahía Mansa “botánica del olvido”
