First release in 1981. Another essential reissue documenting the history of experimental music in Peru. Omar Aramayo (Punol' s wind instruments), Manongo Mujica (percussion) and Arturo Ruiz del Pozo (keyboard), they shaped this magnificent album, where the early Andean music in Peru is assembled with the electronics, opening up to the pure sound experimentation. These composers explored serial, electronic, electroacoustic, and aleatoric music during a time of tension between politics and the avant-garde in academic music in Latin America. The 1960s and 1970s were particularly difficult years for Latin American social movements, and a time when the concepts of vanguard, revolution and universalism enter into complex interactions.
You can' t talk about peruvian experimental music without mentioning Nocturno, an absolutely fundamental album.
