Land in the Sky is an album by architect ALFREDO THIERMANN (formerly of FOLLAKZOID) and musician TRES WARREN of PSYCHIC ILLS. It is the result of an extended sonic conversation between them that developed over the course of two years while both resided in different parts of the world. It is a friendship with a strong emphasis on sonic exchanges rather than other forms of communication. It was recorded in each of their domestic spaces and studios in Santiago de Chile and New York City—separate from one another and sent via email. The music came together without prior discussion of direction. The four 10-minute long tracks are the traces of their exchange of various emotional and mental states. They are prolonged and repetitive meditations composed by simple shapes and forms that almost act as a primitive language. Land in the Sky is a sonic correspondence, an experiment bridging continental distances, an intangible and immaterial space, the space of music. Similarly intangible, the cover of the album is a contribution by the photographer JAMES WELLING, known for his photo on the cover of Sonic Youth’s Bad Moon Rising. Edition of 400 copies on black vinyl.
