Deriva with El Camino de los Caminos - An Interview

Nicolás Garimano e Nicolás Castello já estão se tornando habitues aqui nas páginas do TBTCI, depois de conversamos com eles acerca do Nax, leia aqui, os caras retornam novamente por conta do projeto paralelo dos dois, o El Camino de Los Caminos.

Ao contrário das pérolas sonhadoras do Nax, o El Camino de Los Caminos é estritamente experimental, tortuoso e denso. Conexões com Windy & Carl, Flying Saucer Attack, E.A.R. podem ser perceptíveis na construção das anti canções dos caras.

Para melhor exemplificar a desconstrução da canção, transformando-as em viagens de drones, repetições ou quebra total da forma tradicional, sugiro a audição do novo single "Deriva", "Huit Nuit Huit" e "Transfigurar" certamente te levarão a outras dimensões sem você perceber.

Tranque-se sozinho e experimente o El Camino de los Caminos, a viagem é certeira.

***** Interview with El Camino de los Caminos *****

Q. When did El camino de los caminos start? Tell us about the history...
El camino de los caminos started on late 2015, recording the first material on early 2016, and it was meant to be an expression of my own concepts of sound beyond the other projects I was involved at that time. It started (and continued) as a lo-fi , home recording intended sound, focused on concepts and textures.

Q: Who are your influences?
I would say I grabbed, in the good sense, the musical concepts from both Flying saucer attack and His name is alive as my main influences, though I enjoy the landscape and textures from shoegaze, drone and ambient music in general.

Q. Make a list of 5 albuns of all time…
1- My bloody valentine – Loveless.
2- His name is alive – Home is in your head:
3- Radiohead – Amnesiac
4- Cocteau twins – Treasure
5- : Bjork - Homogenic

Q. How do you feel playing live?
It’s a great experience, I tend to prefer darker and ambient-oriented places, and not to be seen by public if possible, as it enhances the musical experience.

Q. How do you describe El camino de los caminos sounds?
I would say I create 2 kinds of music;, textural ones and conceptual ones. Within every release resides a concept, being duality, cycles, nature or whichever every one could interpret. There´s also a per se appreciation of texture itself, isolated from any concept that I would like to communicate in some of the tracks.

Q: Tell us about the process of recording the songs ?
Composition often start spontaneously, exploring harmonic progressions I enjoy ot simply textural effects combination I feel comfortable with. Later on, I would develop the concept of the track, what would I like the music to communicate and find the means for it (instrumentation, sound effects, noise). Later on, and not every time, I work towards cohesion of the full album, though I don´t find this step a must.

Q. Which new bands do you recommend?
I´m currently enjoying Mac Demarco quite a bit, also Tame Impala, Pond, The War on Drugs, Tweens and probably many more I am surely missing. From the local scene, I enjoy Dietrich, Entidad Animada, Nax and Bertier y la maquina.

Q: Which band would you love to made a cover version of?
I would love to make an Animal Collective cover!

Q: What are your plans for the future?
I intend to keep on making music, following whichever direction it may take, and sharing the wonderful experience with everyone.

Q: Any parting words?
I´d like to thank the blog for this opportunity to be interviewed, and all of my friends support on this project.
