Dos Cuacochis

In stock


 Cuacochi in Nahuatl language means “to sleep in a tree”. As a wind player myself I have always been particularly fascinated by the sound of the air through my instruments. As a performer and improviser I have developed a big palette of wind sounds, mixing them with related sounds such as static radio noise and white noise. The „cuachochi“ series are pieces about air and noise.... and sleeping

 The wind weights the tree
 and fate the rest
