Balfa – Fragmentos (BLF Lab / Fallen Metropolis, FAM028)

Our Saturday selection:
Balfa – Fragmentos (BLF Lab / Fallen Metropolis, FAM028)

The Spanish artist Balfa returns with a live album after almost 10 months since the self-release of his debut album Perfecta Analogía de la Decadencia.

BLF Lab collaborates with the Danish label Fallen Metropolis, to release a collection of live soundscapes from his IN_FR project, a concert series exploring the aesthetics and behavior of sound through handmade synthesizers. Fifteen tracks reaching the boundaries of these machines lead on a sonic journey into ‘organic electronics’ with visceral noises and textures that feel restless and unpredictable.

The music is taken from the performances and sessions made during 2019 and 2020 until the start of the pandemic. Recorded in multiple places where Balfa improvised synthesizing the sound only with his own crafted instruments, and edited down from a huge archive of recordings, putting together the most interesting excerpts.

The album is released in a limited cassette edition with unique handmade artwork on each copy.
