out now! edu comelles & rafa ramos sania – de camp

Here’s our second of two new releases for April. For this one, we welcome Valencia, Spain based artists Edu Comelles and Rafa Ramos Sania. In this album ‘de camp‘ which means from the field in Catalan, the many instrument sounds of Rafa Ramos Sania are arranged by Edu Comelles, and adapted into a form of contemporary chamber music, with sensitively added electronics.

The album download includes a bonus track, a 32 minute live performance at the VolumensFest in November 2021. There are also music videos for the tracks Argilaga, Heura and Lantana, created by Jorge Dabaliña.

De Camp I is out now in a run of 100 copies! The best way to keep informed about our low-run releases, is to join our mailing list, and we’ll make sure you’re the first to hear!

press release
“de camp is the second album by the Spanish duo formed by sound artist Edu Comelles and multi-instrumentalist Rafa Ramos Sania. After their debut on Archives label with Botánica de Balcón, the two artists expand their sonic universe by refining their own style, aesthetics and sound design. The outcome is ‘de camp’, an album featuring five new compositions and Bleda, a piece originally released on El Muelle Records as part of a charity compilation album.

de camp encompasses a widening of the musical horizons of this duo, stretching the colour palette of their timbres and shedding some light to their darker first album on Archives. Botánica de Balcón revolved around setting up a dialogue between austere electronics and the sombre strength of the double bass. On de camp the composition process has been a back and forth exercise of recording and re-recording, dissolving the lines between instrumentation, electronics and field recordings and striving for a unity in language and aesthetics.

de camp means ‘from the field’ or ‘from land’ in Catalan. All track titles refer to Catalan names of plants found in the outskirts of Valencia, the city where both artists live.
