SYMBOLISM OF SOUND
Munda is an experimental sound research and production project by Selu Herraiz that reflects on the contemporary relationships between daily life and ritual. The thin boundaries between science and magic are questioned through sound, investigating new symbologies in the way they affect the human subconscious and determine our possible paths for transformation.
The sound of Munda travels from the primitive and raw to psychedelic electronica, clearly permeated by rhythms and harmonies of traditional Mediterranean cultures and captivated by the Sufi heritage that flourished in the valleys of southern Spain during the Al-Andalus era. Selu works with DIY instruments, field recordings, analog synthesizers and digital software to give rise to compositions in which dark environments and noisy cinematic scenes emerge, sometimes accompanied by slow and mantric polyrhythms that are an invitation to trance.
