(SIC)

August 30, 2013: Bonequi and Ambriz joined forces in one of the most insane projects of the History of Experimental Music in Mexico.

How many duos of extreme vocalists we know from all over the world, who are composing as profound savages, possessed by rituals from the cave, but with the conscious of silence and meditation?

In this sense, Ambriz and Bonequi merge primigenius intuition as a concept of uniqueness and unity from spaceship earth parked on the Devastating Psychological Impact of amoral landscapes... composing reconstructed face cuts of whom invoke timeless miniatures from the instability of gesture... (SIC) aren't mad humanists, they love the world as primitive beings... and as primitive humanoids they shout freedom in no-language and should dream dialects for us while trembling and convulsing mouth noises from antique nonexistent rites.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Rodrigo Ambriz (1983, vocal improviser & electronics)

Without doubt, one of the most talented vocal performers in Mexico. He has collaborated deeply in the experimental scene in Mexico City with noisers and improvisers from different stylistic contexts includig .RR, Los Heraldos Negros, Juanjose Rivas, Germán Bringas, Fernando Vigueras, Angélica Castelló, Arthur Henry Fork, Eduardo Meléndez, Felix Blume, Alejandro Tux, among others. He has published in labels such as Ruido Horrible, Noxa Recs and Suplex, all in Mexico.

"My way to approach sound is this phonic-waste voragine; grunts, suffocated exhalations, shriekings, whispers, squawks and screams. I'm focused on deconstructing, alter and multiply the phonic material. The first thing that interests me about the voice are the physical sensations that come from manipulating the vocal apparatus, air travel in internal cavities, tremors in different parts of the body, the stresses and strains. All this brings me to a primary state. The voice that exists previous to language. I'm interested in the voice as generator of a constant flow of dizzying associations, the voice that enters in a channel of automatism and glossolalia."
