‘Night Studies’ is Chilean composer Felipe Otondo’s new release with Sargasso (follow-up to 2013’s ‘Tutuguri’). The three pieces were composed between 2013 and 2017 using sound samples of percussion instruments and field recordings carried out in Chile, England, Kenya and Mexico. The album was constructed as an aural journey through real and imaginary nocturnal soundscapes using as a timbral framework the wide palette of tonal and percussive sounds of the Javanese gamelan orchestra.
