A bit more than a year have passed since Bonequi and Ambriz joined forces in one of the most insane projects of the History of Experimental Music in Mexico [ (SIC) born: August 30, 2013 ].
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... while trembling and convulsing mouth noises from antique nonexistent rites.

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
