audio-MAD Space >> “The Invisibles”
The Invisibles make experimentation and appropriation their field of operations. As their name implies, they enter a state of lucid trance, serving as mediums to communicate us with a spectral world of samplers, field recordings, textual collages and pop references that undergo careful deconstruction. The result jumps without complexes from Ornette Coleman to post punk or minimalism, compiling a catalog of emotions of which we all find ourselves accomplices.
The Invisibles play with listening, with emotional references and contexts. The sound weaves a narrative that more than illustrating a dreamlike story it becomes it, in a constant process of composition and recomposition. It becomes organic matter, in a palpable, unforeseeable and hypnotic multicellular organism.
The Invisibles are Javier Montero and Marcos Monge.
