A 70-min digital release including three reworks and a new presentation of the album

Last year, French/Chilean duo NOVA MATERIA released Xpujil, a unique, experimental ambient album which came out as part of Crammed Discs’ Made To Measure composers series.

A single, 40-minute immersive piece mixed in binaural, Xpujil (pronounced ex-poo-khil) takes the liste- ner on a sonic journey through an organic and shifting world, and blurs the limits between music, field recording and psychoacoustic trance. The album’s material derived from recordings made during a walking trip in the Mexican jungle (* more details below).
Nova Materia have now asked three eminent artists to create tracks based on the rich material contained in the album:

Donato Dozzy: the enigmatic Italian master of experimental ambient creates a magical, trippy 18-min excursion into the supernatural world of the Xpujil jungle.

Lucrecia Dalt: the highly respected Colombian avantgarde musician’s affinities with mystery, storytel- ling, field recordings and poetry is reflected in her lovely, concise take on the piece.

Low Jack: mostly known as an electronic music artist, Honduras-born, Frenchman Philippe Hallais has also worked with ethnographic recordings in his Garifuna Variations (commissioned by the Quai Branly Museum). Asking him to rework Xpujil was therefore a natural choice for Nova Materia.

In addition to these three reworks, the Xpujil Revisited digital release includes a new presentation of the original album, in which the original 40-min piece is segmented into four separate parts, thus enabling a different listening experience.

Nova Materia Paris, France

Nova Materia’s powerful, hypnotic music incorporates eerie sounds generated by raw and mineral materials (metal, rocks etc) to create tracks that are in turn hyper-rhythmic and dreamy, poised between postpunk rock and electronic dance music.
