As I was getting ready to write this post, I started thinking about how I could describe the work of Dario Moratilla. Is it possible? Is it even worthwhile to attempt to do so? The bio at Impulsive Habitat says:
He bases all his music in the manipulation of the digital audio and displacement of many field records and the possibilities of chances and error as a factor of the music. His music is organic and develops, it denotes a great use of the new technologies mainly in the experimental software use.
The part of the paragraph above that strikes me is the “displacement of many field records” along with “the possibilities of chance and error as a factor of the music”. In Moratilla’s Trazos (Impulsive Habitat) we are brought into a soundscape the is absolutely manufactured but it’s essence is fundamental and integrated with the world around us. Trazos is a work that composes around the mundane and brings forth strange and rare sounds of our existence.
