Other spaces between utopian and real landscapes.
"We do not live in a white and neutral space ; we do not live, we do not die and we do not love inside the rectangle of a piece of paper. We live, we die and we love in a space which is divided up, cut up,  coloured in, which has its light and dark zones, its different levels, its steps, its hollows, its bumps, its hard areas and other friable, penetrable and porous areas. There are the transit zones, the streets, the trains and the subways; there are the open zones of the temporary stop, the cafés, the cinemas, the beaches and the hotels, and then there are the closed zones of rest and home. Yet, there are other places which are absolutely different among all these places which differ from one another : places which are opposed to all the others and which are meant to erase them in a way, to neutralize and purify them. These are a kind of counter-space.  Children know these counter-spaces and these local utopias very well. Of course they are the bottom of the garden; of course, the attic; or better still the Indian tent set up in the middle of the attic; or again the parents’ double bed on a Thursday afternoon. It’s on that double bed that they discover the oceans because they can swim amidst the blankets; that bed is also the sky because they can jump on the springs; it is the forest for them to hide in; it is the night for them to become a ghost between the sheets; finally it is pleasure for they will be punished when their parents get back home. (...) So be it ! I dream of a science – I mean it, a science – which would study these different  spaces, these other places, these mythical and real questionings of the space we live in. This science would not study utopias for this term has to be kept for that which does not really exist, but heterotopias, these other absolute spaces. The science in question would therefore logically be called and is already called “heterotopology”. "
Michel Foucault Translated from the French by Isabelle Maubian.
"Bachelard's monumental work and the descriptions of phenomenologists have taught us that we do not live in a homogeneous and empty space, but on the contrary in a space thoroughly imbued with quantities and perhaps thoroughly fantasmatic as well. The space of our primary perception, the space of our dreams and that of our passions hold within themselves qualities that seem intrinsic: there is a light, ethereal, transparent space, or again a dark, rough, encumbered space; a space from above, of summits, or on the contrary a space from below of mud; or again a space that can be flowing like sparkling water, or space that is fixed, congealed, like stone or crystal." Translated from the French by Jay Miskowiec.

Airports & Hotels


Juan Antonio Nieto (2017): Airports & Hotels [IHab131]
Free download Impulsive Habitat

Airports & Hotels es una recopilación de los sonidos que he encontrado en los viajes que he realizado en los últimos años.

Las fuentes de estos sonidos son grabaciones de campo realizadas en diferentes aeropuertos, dentro de los aviones y en hoteles. En estos ultimos las grabaciones son improvisaciones con los elementos que encontre en ellos y sus distintas estancias. Estas grabaciones se realizaron con las ventanas abiertas para captar los sonidos del exterior, lluvia, trafico, gente hablando etc.

Estos sonidos fueron mezclados, intentando mantener, en lo posible, el espíritu que tenian en origen, y que más que identificar los sonidos, buscaba que estos se intuyeran.

Los distintos títulos de los temas hacen referencia a los lugares en los que se grabaron. La mayoria fueron masterizados y completados en Madrid.

Juan Antonio Nieto


Airports & hotels is a compilation of the sounds I have found in the trips I have made in recent years.

The sources of these sounds are field recordings made at different airports, on airplanes and in hotels. In these last ones the recordings are improvisations with the elements that I found in them and their different stays. These recordings were made with the windows open to capture the sounds of the outside, rain, traffic, people talking, etc.

These sounds were mixed, trying to maintain, as much as possible, the spirit they had at their origin, and rather than identifying the sounds, I wanted them to be intuited.

The different titles of the tracks refer to the places where they were recorded. The majority were mastered and completed in Madrid.

MIKA MARTINI + JAVIER PIÑANGO + JUAN ANTONIO NIETO EN LA TORTUGA

El músico experimental chileno Mika Martini, director del sello Pueblo Nuevo, visita Madrid en el marco de su gira europea. En esta ocasión le acompañan dos veteranos de la experimentación musical madrileña, Juan Antonio Nieto y Javier Piñango, ambos con largas trayectorias que comenzaron en los años 80. Nieto y Piñango son además noticia por la reciente publicación de su disco en colaboración "Two unfocused cardinal points" editado en el sello barcelonés Marbre Negre.

Los tres, por separado y juntos y revueltos, ofrecerán una noche de intricados laberintos sonoros llenos de recovecos e intensidad, con tiempo también para la improvisación y la complicidad sónica a caballo siempre entre lo digital y lo analógico (y viceversa).

En definitiva: un evento imperdible…
