Wetland AV & album realease

Wetland (Clara Brea & Elena Brea)

“Wetland” started as a site specific audio visual Performance for Eufonic Festival. Most of it was composed in the Ebro Delta (a nature reserve that’s one of the most climate change threatened environments in the Iberian Peninsula) on September 2019.

Since then it’s been performed live in different venues and it has evolved to become an hour long audio visual piece, and an Album.

Source material includes field recordings and video footage captured throughout the Eufònic/LoPati Residency, field recordings from a canal boat in London, modular synthesizer compositions and footage from the Mediterranean Sea (Menorca, Spain).

Released September 15, 2020.

Composed and recorded by Clara Brea.
Photography / Video / Artwork by Elena Brea.
Mastered by Damian Schwartz at Lyrebird sound.

Here is a wide and varied selection of Field recordings, drones, ambient, hauntology, experimental and early electronic music that I’ve either enjoyed listening to, performed, or recorded through 2019.”
