Cat.#: LONTANO-S-CD15
Release date: 10/09/2020
Format: CD, Digital

La Linea Negra is an independent project exposing through a sonic journey the encounter with a native Aruachos family in the area of Santa Marta, in the Sierra Nevada.
Routine days spent surrounded by the mountains of the Colombian Department of Magdalena as special guests of a warm and friendly family who decided to share their customs, culture and ancestral knowledge with us, their "younger brothers" ...

This project aims to present a personal vision of the natural soundscape of this place and of those living there.
A place that today, along with the Amazon forest, constitutes one of the most complex and important ecosystems on a global scale in terms of biodiversity and natural resources.
Field-recording and sound design can be regarded, in this case, as a personal contribution to a wider socio-cultural action.

The echo of the forest, birds’ chirping, the spring of water with its branching courses, the systematic and punctual insects’ conversations, the tribal rhythms of the drums, the fuss in the hut along with the dark and lilting voice of the Mamo, these are all fleeting impulses of a landscape which has no accurate spatiotemporal connotation but that constantly refers to our primordial origins.
On the one hand, the aim is to create a deep immersion in these territories through a real practice of deep listening implying a high level of attention to the innermost details of sound. On the other hand, this is the call for an unconditional act of listening that can somehow induce the listener through subtle reminiscences to a more personal interpretation of the landscape.
Ab Uno shapes sonic material through recording, editing, and recombination of sound objects and acoustic elements carved into physical and cultural landscapes, in the voices of the wind or the unheard tales of tribal communities.

Recorded in the sacred territory of Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta, Colombia.
Dedicated to the native tribe of Arhuaco.

Part of the proceeds from this release will be devolved to support the family that hosted us making it possible to realize this work.
