Carlos Suárez Sánchez es un compositor gallego-venezolano con trayectoria asimismo como etnomusicólogo y percusionista. En Transit Mundi utiliza el lenguaje de la electroacústica, resaltando, por un lado, la importancia de los sonidos de la naturaleza como inmensa y rica biblioteca llena de sentido, y por el otro, el trabajo de estudio, más formal, sobre frecuencias, intensidades y estructuras, en un conjunto de diez piezas que nos incita a una inmersión en la densidad y equilibrio sonoros así como en el núcleo de nuestro presente, sin obviar la poesía. El uso del latín en los títulos, y en el marco de esta propuesta, conlleva una reflexión sobre el hecho de que un idioma imperial y continental en su momento, paradójicamente, pereció, metáfora de la vanidad del poder y que apoya la idea de que el movimiento, el cambio y la evolución son parte de la realidad, como la vida y la muerte. La asamblea de animales del Popol Vuh que ilustra el disco está llena de un barroquismo y de esos significados simbólicos de los que también rebosa la música. Todo muy telúrico e intenso, dialéctico y articulado, brillante y profundo, sólido y sutil: Atravesamos el mundo, recóndito y sublime, con sus placeres y su dolor.

"Con Carlos Suárez"

         Críticas

 

" Now here's an interesting piece of dark and desolate ambience.

Suarez is a Spanish composer with an impressive pedigree that I have singularly managed to miss. If this album is evidence of what has gone before then that's a shame.

The music on 'Transit Mundi' is a cascading torrent of abrasive and elemental noise. It's by turns pithy and vehement and also unassuming and introspective. I'm much more interested in noise music when, like this, it's produced with thought and an accuracy of touch rather than just with a distortion pedal fuelled by piss and vinegar. As such I enjoyed this very much. It conjures up all manner of disconcerting atmospheres and makes for an entertaining journey. " (Ian Holloway, Wonderful Wooden Reasons, 8/7/2013)

" De l’électroacoustique ambiante espagnole. Transit Mundi propose des textures enveloppantes, souvent angoissantes, ponctuées d’imprécations qui n’ont rien pour rassurer, nommément les voix de Borges et d’Antonin Artaud (un soliloque sur la médecine et la magie). Souvent drone, parfois doom, on frôle à l’occasion l’univers de KTL. Linéaire mais intéressant.

Spanish ambient electroacoustics. Transit Mundi consists of immersive textures, often disquieting, anguish-ready, punctuated by imprecations that will do nothing to reassure you, especially the voices of Borges and Artaud. Often drone-line, at times doom-like, the music occasionally drifts close to KTL’s soundworld. A bit one-track-minded but interesting. " (François Couture, Monsieur Délire, 9/4/2013)

" El resultado finalmente no queda lejos de clásicos de la electrónica oscura de la "escuela" de Lustmord " (Andrés Noarbe, Rotor, 5/1/2013)

" One of the more exciting new labels of last year is Luscinia Discos from Spain. Pretty much all of their releases I thought were great and none of the names of the musicians and composers mean a lot to me. That means the world is infinitely bigger than a few handshakes. Here we have Carlos Suarez Sanchez, who was born in Spain but lived in Venezuela where he works as a composer, percussion player and ethnomusicologist. He has composed over fifty works for acoustic and electro-acoustic works. I guess this new one is among the latter. The cover doesn't give much away as to the nature of these pieces, but I think it's safe to assume it has to do with field recordings, but also voices, and perhaps processed percussion sounds (but that might because Sanchez is a percussion player). All of this is committed to the computer and transformed into a very nice work of electro-acoustic music, which only partly nods towards the world of serious electro-acoustic music, which to my ears is great as the official world is always a bit stale. But here Sanchez composes ten great pieces, in which the insect sounds of the jungle are used in all sorts of configurations, high pitched but always changing and gliding. The percussive sounds are spooky and intense; almost like a scary movie. The latin texts may not always be my cup of tea, because it sounds a bit 'gothic', but since they are only sparsely used, I may not care that much about it. Indeed, another excellent release on this label. Totally professional package too actually! " (Frans de Waard, Vital Weekly #863, 1/1/2013)

" A few examples of [2012] works based on field recordings that had surprised me quite a lot:

Transit Mundi – Carlos Suárez

Because Carlos Suárez has been able to create a very personal, rich and complex world made of soundscapes, a thrilling album full of tension, emotion, beauty and horror. A field recordings roller-coaster. " (Edu Comelles, The Field Reporter, 30/12/2012)
