about

Composed by Joaquín Gutiérrez Hadid

Every time that I listen carefully, I try to reduce my breathing to its minimum. One night, eyes closed, a vision of something very tiny reached my attention, a part that seemed to be the virtual inside of my body. This image was fast and intense, with a variety of paths, much like a liquid following the nervation in a leaf. Suddenly, I had the impression and possibility of stopping this flow with my will. After a glimpse, this leaf (or muscle) appeared to be dried. This shocked me, and I asked myself if I had killed something inside? But mostly, I asked if I could take my life away with an action related to thought, will or an insight. In trying to calm down, I listened to one of my favorite sound works. This brought me some signs of relaxation, easing the witnessing of something so transcendental. I experienced several phases where I recalled consequently coming back from a state of no perception. I had an extremely pleasant sensation every time when coming back from this deep trance as this total blackout was the quintessence of any pleasure, something diffuse in between perfume or sensation felt within the body that was tempting me to dive in again. It was impossible to remember when I started this suspension of reality, the only lucid moment was coming back to the "reality" without knowing how much time had passed. I wanted to keep trying, but it was really frightening to feel what may happen if I can't ever come back. After opening my eyes, the question arose: did that constitute an ego dissolution, or was it death? I remember this sensation as the most erotic experience I had ever. The next day I recorded the material of this edition. Dedicated to Albert Hofmann / Buenos Aires, Argentina / 2020
