Boomkat Product Review:
Séance Centre, the new label manned by Invisible City Editions’ Brandon Hocura, dust down Eblen Macari’s obscure Mexican space synth suite Música Para Planetarios for its first (remastered) vinyl reissue. Any cadets into László Hortobágyi, Steve Hauschildt, K. Leimer or Rex Ilusivii/Suba need to give this a whirl!
“Mexican guitarist and ambient artist Eblen Macari’s Música Para Planetarios (Music for Planetariums) was originally composed for weekly performances in the Luis Enrique Erro Planetarium in Mexico City to accompany a voyage through the galaxy. The album, released in 1987 was based around Macari’s solo performances using Ensoniq ESQ-1, a Korg Poly 800, two guitars and pre-hispanic Ocarinas. The expanded arrangements recorded for the album include a full stable of pre-hispanic percussion and beautiful baroque harpsichord played by Macari’s wife. This expansive interplanetary soliloquy is undoubtedly Macari’s masterpiece.
