Boomkat Product Review:
Mexican sound artist Concepción Huerta looks to the stars on her latest sludgy kosmische set, filtering weightless synth sequences thru fluttering tape processes.
A photographer and video artist as well as a composer, Concepción Huerta is also known locally in Mexico for her work documenting the country's growing experimental scene. "Harmonies from Betelgeuse" follows a run of releases on Static Discos, SA Recordings and Hole Records, and demonstrates the flexibility of her musical knowledge. Her inspiration here is the endless open void of the universe, and she attempts to represent space using analogue synthesizers and effects, keeping an eye on our 1960s/70s ideas of electronic music and science fiction, while simultaneously referencing contemporary tape-obsessed experimental heads like William Basinski and Nikolaienko.
Across eight woozy compositions, Huerta evokes the sensation of space, its constant weightless movement, its expansion and contraction and its ultimate mystery. "Harmonies from Betelgeuse" is almost a soundtrack to a lost sci-fi movie, or at least a documentary filmed using the very finest telescopic imaging equipment.
