QiK – Umbral [Aula Magna Records]

Unexpected, confounding events and ruptures on instinct's continuum that grace the domain of the perceived. An Umbral (Doorstep in spanish) is a limit between two states. A single chassis known for the duality of his zealous techno current sets and his thundering-driven exploratory performances such as the ones carried out alongside his audiovisual collective Tekhne A/V. A milestone in Qik's euphonious m, Umbral marks a important cavort first in the artist's melodic dream, one that has evolved over and beyond his 10-year bearing in the electronic music background in Argentina. The umbral is an indefinite, incorporeal wrinkle defined by the impression of a area that hovers on the transit between two antagonistic states. The umbral can be jumped, defied and it's in this on the brink of ludic experimentation that errors are produced. The follow-up is an intime solicitation that explores the limits between dub techno, ambient and characteristic experimentation. It's the bourn between look and qui, interior and case, sunlight and suggestion, delight and pang. Pushed by an experimentalist proposition, the ten tracks on the recount where born from a forceful search and shaping of combined acoustic and electronic sounds, acreage recordings, documents from audiovisual explosive performances and analogue and digital synths. Enrique Casal aka Qik presents Umbral, a nocturnal album that had it's own ripening method, nourished from the tranquillity of the night-time.
