Tirana Square

by Kirki Project

Pilgrimage 05:20
Farewell 03:33


Kirki Project 'Tirana Square’ is inspired by Fiesta de la Tirana, a religious festival to honour Virgen del Carmen that takes place over ten days in La Tirana village in the Atacama Desert, Northern Chile. Created music puts it in a different context aiming to create new sonorities and aesthetics. The developed pieces were based on the interaction between field recordings acquired by Ricardo Alvarez during the festival visit in 2012 and the electro-acoustic improvisation process developed by the duo at the University of York, UK in 2014.

The pieces were created through experimentation using contemporary music methods such as live processing, deconstruction of rhythms recorded with acoustic instruments in Chile, sound synthesis, controlled improvisation, interaction with and alteration of field recordings. The resulting material comprises six pieces that function as a suite recreating the storyline and structure of the Feast of La Tirana celebration. The improvisation used in the process of creating the album was shaped by the intercultural and interdisciplinary relationships of the artists involved in the project.
Album was mixed and mastered in 2020 by Radek Rudnicki.
