Given a chance, most sounds---from the clatter of children playing in the streets of Indonesia to the rev of an old Chevy truck and the thunderous bellow of ice cracking below a frozen lake---are subject to sparking musical inspiration for Enstéreo. Jaime Holguin, who plays the role of producer, composer and arranger in this project, stirs up a mixture of noodlings that meander through pop, folk, Latin and electronic distortion. The debut EP "Escuchenos ... En Serio!", a low-fi collection of compositions crudely recorded and mixed on a laptop computer, is a venture into "found sound" technology--organic sound of cross-cultural origins gathered and electronically manipulated to create a juxtaposition of traditional and cutting-edge. Each song feels distinctly warm, infectious and sincere. His latest single, "¿Que tal si tu y yo?", is every bit as charming.
The exact date of this concert is not known, but it occurred in the marked year around this time.
