Banda Elástica — Maquizcoatl
(El Paraiso GLDP 073, 1996, CD)
by Alain Lachapelle, Published 1997-02-01
This is not music in the traditional sense. But don't let this refrain you from sampling a collection of sonic atmospheres exclusively made with acoustic instruments and most noticeably, South American percussive instruments, which gives Maquizocoatl a good dose of warm overtones. In fact, the different sonic atmospheres are woven in such a way that only but a little effort on the listener's part is needed to get into them. This is no background material. It stands on its own and the listener can be carried away quite easily by the textures which, perhaps due to the percussiveness of them, are captivating. But be reminded that textures they are: this is definitively no humming material.
