about

The music of Alejandro Morse is undeniably focused on beauty and harmonic perfection, even if Morse intentionally tries to hide his innate melodic talents behind layers of vaporous textures. His sound world is obsessively detailed and stretches between nervousness and melancholy. Alejandro Morse’s 444 offers a collection of electroacoustic compositions materialized with digital production protocols, evoking a vernacular, Mexican ambiance. Its tracks are based in the manipulation of actual string instruments using DSP tools; its sound palette features harp, bass and acoustic guitar recorded in naturally echoing and reverberating spaces, and then subjected to various sound processing techniques, microphone feedback, radio frequencies, static/noise, synthetic sounds and tape loops taken from random field recordings. The ambience created by these methods aims to reflect on the emotional imbalance of the human condition. In this album, his third on Umor Rex, you’ll find nostalgic soundscapes of comfort and pain. 444 is a synchronicity symbol, a repeating motif in Alejandro Morse’s life, a random number eternally returning to remind you who you are.
