Happy/Pretty/Healthy/Rich y Huldra _ Música por Pia Achternkamp y Susan Drone _ Diseño gráfico por Susan Drone_ Grabado por Crystal Mine . Burgos - Berlín - Murcia , 2020 . Puedes comprarlo aquí: crystalmine@disroot.org . C60 #anticopyright


This split is the consequence of the multiple affinities sonorous and artistic of Pia Achternkamp and Susana López (Susan Drone). Due to their common influences such as Pauline Oliveros, Terry Riley or Charlemagne Palestine and their love for strange sounds, experimentation, drones, ... these two sound explorers have met several times at national festival events. This tape reveals that common affinity for creating dark music, but not depressing, for building their own sonic instruments and for performing live shows that invite them to escape to other worlds of fantasy and reflection.

Pia Achternkamp (l o h) is a composer, multi-instrumentalist and performance artist who is researching on the borderlands of music, dance and fine arts. She is glad to release her latest work at CRYSTAL MINE.
Pia is interested in the phenomenon of endless repetition and minimal variation: her album happy/healthy/pretty/rich is an odd mantra.
It might trigger tender anger, sweet numbness, calming confusion or just a promising sensation that something tremendous is gonna happen in any moment.
This is her third solo album after "Raw Rhapsody" (2018) and "the distance /// side a" (2019).

Susana López aka Susan Drone. Experimental composer, visual artist and performer.
I work with sound and light exploring how these intangible materials can act as catalysts focusing our consciousness and alter our perception.
My works embrace the hybridization of sound creation with other disciplines such as concerts, installations, performances or videoart.

With four releases: Looms (2019), Four Sinusoids to Eliane (2019), Megalitomanía (2014) and Vortex (2011),. I have participated in more than 13 international and national compilations.

The compositions of Huldra, have been created with field recordings, electronics and layers of vocal harmonics, creating dense clouds of hypnotic sound. Hidden sounds behind light and darkness.
