Product Description

Gastón Arévalo is releasing his debut album Rollin Ballads on Oktaf Records. Growing up close to the harbour of Montevideo, Uruguay´s capital, being surrounded by old architecture, fishermen, boats and the sea on the one hand and subtropical nature on the other, his fascination with his natural and urban surroundings seems to have developed only naturally.

His latest recordings are intensely inspired by natural and organic sounds. The result is a synaesthetic impression of foggy, far away landscapes; yet still flooded with light. This is what Arévalo intends with his aurally and visually stunning tracks. Classically trained, Arévalo intersperses analogue sounds into his tracks as he incorporates modulated and modified fragments and passages played by instruments. This evokes the musical influence of music pioneers such as Brian Eno, Terry Riley, Arvo Pärt or Erik Satie. As a multidisciplinary artist with a focus on experimental ambient music, this record based on neo-classical sound collages and modulated and synthesized field recordings rife with hidden melodies and abstract sound structures. His tracks are and should be mirror images of life – Rollin Ballads – which, as life is, always moving and constantly changing..
