Something that has an appearance resembling a human being


Julian Bonequi

Primigenius intuition as a concept of uniqueness and unity from Spaceship Earth parked on the Devastating Psychological Impact of Reality as Landscape… composing reconstructed face cuts of whom invoke timeless miniatures from the instability of gesture… an humanoid trembling and convulsing mouth noises, kicks and sticking muscles into skin drums from antique nonexistent rites.

This piece is an instant composition during a studio recording in Mexico City. Improvising in one take with amplified toy drums of 10 and 12" – hand cut with a saw / in fact, one of the smallest drum kits in all the world – , plus live mixing, broken cheap mics and vocals.

Recorded at Papagayo Studio by Daniel Goldaracena. Mixed and premastered by Bonequi.

Bonequi (1974, Mexico DF), has been performing widely since 1995. Creator of Audition Records, a transnational documentary platform specialized in experimental and improvised music [].
