CRAFTING THE FIELD
A XAPIRI GROUND SERIES
FEATURING PAUCARMAYTA ANTHONY
Crafting the Field by Xapiri Ground is a creative series of musical compositions that express upon the natural and social environments surrounding Indigenous culture and their contemporaries.
Through collaborations with Indigenous artists, sound designers, and music producers we hope to encourage a diffusion between cultures through creative research and mutual respect.
For this series, we introduce the Peruvian artist Anthony Paucarmayta. Paucarmayta explores and collaborates; as a source of inspiration, with original field recordings taken by Xapiri Ground during our expeditions to the Matsés community, expanding his vision to a futuristic ancestral world using sound coexistence combining the sacred chants of the Matsés with textures between the organic and the electronic that stimulate and connect the emotions with the senses, taking us on a sensorial sonic journey into the deep jungle of the Matsés.
