Mayken Craenen

Mayken Craenen is an artist, florist, and one half of the duo behind Antwerp-based floral and creative studio, Wilder. She crafted special collages to accompany the cassette. When listening through the tracks, a vivid scenery emerged: “I imagined jungles, underwater landscapes, and dripping grottos, with things growing and buzzing with life.” The clay sculptures became living forms within the landscape, interspersed with other creatures and inhabitants. This dreamscape inspired her use of materials, building a world around the sculptures: “I used organic fragments from old books: funghi, flowers, and minerals, combined with the lively, intuitive scribbles of my youngest daughter which also seemed to illustrate the musical movements.”

Cate Kennan

Cate Kennan is a Los Angeles-based sound artist. Drawn to the unfamiliar quality of Camila’s sculptures, “Reflection I” paints a surrealist landscape, a place where one of Camila’s vases might live. With “Reflections II,” Cate expands this beguiling atmosphere by inversely reflecting the first track and recordings made from Camila’s own sculpting process. She says, “the combination of sounds evoke to me the sense of an inner landscape rather than a sound environment that would surround something.”

They sounded like water underneath the whirring of machinery, movement through sand, a landscape of grass, and irregular rhythms of another world.

Cucina Povera

Maria Rossi talks to us about the origins of 'Cucina Povera' and how this Italian cooking style became the inspiration for her music.

It reminds me of the fragility of ceramics as a medium, despite its sturdy appearance or texture.

Baal & Mortimer

Baal & Mortimer is more than just a project by Alexandra Grübler. It’s an unbounded universe. A probe into the concrete possibilities between tone and image, language and body, research and movement.

I wanted the track to have cathedral-type qualities, to emphasize the hall of the sculpture, the echo of the curve.

Morita Vargas

Morita Vargas is an Argentine producer and singer, exploring fantasy soundscapes in languageless lyrics. “Crater” is inspired by her conversations with Camila, where the two explored the idea of roots and lungs. “As Camila's sculpture was taking shape, it evoked for me sounds of wind, cavities, wind instruments, and air circulating through those cavities―sounds entering and leaving.”

Camila Apaez

Camila Apaez is a Guadalajara-based artist and founder of Ila Ceramica studio. The four vessels draw inspiration from her individual dialogue with each sound artist, with nature, amorphous atmospheres, bodily experience, and natural landscapes synthesizing into shape and form.

Nature, amorphous atmospheres, bodily experience, and natural landscapes are all sources of inspiration.

Emotional Rollercoaster

This symbol is fluid, constantly moving and cannot stand still. It understands its own emotions and often changes in different directions in an instant. It is rising both downwards and upwards. Never static and always in flux.

A Sense of Melancholy

This one moves in just one direction but does so with great depth. It's very closed because it has several layers. Like a grating, it pushes us to see beyond or even below our ribs. It exposes itself but with protection.

Ready for Action

A symbol that is both strong and heavy. It is preparing to leave and has a lot of energy in it. That's why it has a viewfinder. A point where it can arrive and explore itself fully. It has a lot of energy and it never gets tired, even as it supports all the others.
