Two long improv tracks by two veterans of the avant-garde world Benjamin Vergara: (trumpet) and Fred Frith (electric guitar). These tracks were recorded at in Chile at the University Austral in 2018, trumpeter Benjamin Vergara and guitarist Fred Frith take us on two extended journeys through free electroacoustic improvisation, Frith's providing diverse and intense sonic environments over which Vergara's virtuosic and intuitive approach to the trumpet soars; impressive, creative, cathartic.
