This is a record that Mexican drone artist Concepcion Huerta will release in February 2024 from the experimental label Elevator Bath in Texas, USA.

Contains 7 deeply sinking drone songs. DL code included.

Below is a commentary by the label.

"Elevator Bath is excited to present the first solo LP of Concepcion Huerta, a highly accomplished multidisciplinary artist from Mexico who uses tape to manipulate recordings of everyday objects and electronic instruments. His experimental methods result in intense and profound takes on dark ambient and noise music.

"The Earth Has Memory" was recorded during a stay at EMS (Elektronmusikstudion) in Stockholm, and was later partially fine-tuned at a UNAM seminar with Olivia Block (Block is credited as co-producer on two songs on the album). ing). The instruments used are primarily Buchla and Nord, which are treated with magnetic tape, giving the pieces a tactile, organic texture. A purely abstract sound dominates this chronicle, reflecting the mystery of what lies beneath the surface. The high-pitched tones that appear from time to time are like light glimpsed through the cracks when looking up from inside the earth. Low frequencies indicate core pressure, and the swaying drones are replicating geological movements larger than humans.

The album's cover art is composed of elaborate color photographs taken by Magali Ugarte during a visit with Huerta to the obsidian mines of Hidalgo. The trip was full of discovery for the two women, forming a bond between the artists and the minerals they discovered. This literal excursion served as the perfect counterpoint to the figurative explorations on which this album was created. "

Elevator Bath:

"Elevator Bath is thrilled to present the first solo vinyl LP from Concepción Huerta, accomplished multidisciplinary artist from Mexico who employs tapes to manipulate recordings of everyday objects and electronic instruments. The fruit of these experimental methods is an intense, heavy take on dark ambient and noise music: a densely atmospheric exploration of sound driven by narrative, more akin to storytelling than songwriting.

“The Earth Has Memory” was recorded while in residence at Elektronmusikstudion (EMS), Stockholm and then partially fine tuned at a seminar at UNAM with Olivia Block (Block is credited with co-production on two of the album's pieces). Instruments used were primarily the Buchla and the Nord, which were then processed via magnetic tape, lending a tactile, organic quality to the work — appropriate as “The Earth Has Memory” tells of a descent to the center of the earth. Purely abstract resonances dominate this chronicle , reflecting the mystery of what lies beneath the surface. High-pitched tones occasionally appear, like glimpses of light showing through the cracks while looking up from within the earth. Low frequencies indicate the pressure at the core, while lurching drones replicate geological movements larger than humanity.

The album's cover art consists of exquisite color photography by Magaly Ugarte, taken while on a visit with Huerta to an obsidian mine in Hidalgo. This trip was full of discovery for the two women, forming a bond between the artists and a connection with the minerals they found. This literal excursion served as a perfect counterpoint to the figurative explorations through which the album was created.

Concepción Huerta has a storied background in audiovisual media and a deep focus on the sound spectrum. She is an active solo performer as well as a member of the experimental ensemble Amor Muere with Gibrana Cervantes, Camille Mandoki, and Mabe Fratti, with whom she has collaborated on several releases. She has also worked with a diverse array of artists including Fernado Vigueras, Martin Escalante, CNDSD, Resonancia, Rick Reed, Tommi Keränen, Camilo Angeles, and Daniela Huerta, among others. Her recordings have been issued by labels such as Static Discos, SA Recordings (Scrawl), Aurora Central, and Umor Rex. Huerta has performed at a wide range of festivals and venues in America, Europe, and Asia."
