Product Description

Introduced to each other by the label, the two artists found common ground with thousands of miles between them, in more ways than one. A desire for each other’s work sparked a productive partnership that quickly found Leandro creating specific sounds based on concrete directives from Rafael.

Leandro Fresco’s signature melodies and warm, colorful textures have adorned the Argentinian’s work ever since his first appearance on Kompakt’s Pop Ambient Series in 2003, right up to his latest artist album El Reino Invisible (2015). This “melodic sensibility” as Rafael likes to say, proved to be the defining undercurrent to Rafael’s signature sound design, a combination that takes each of their distinct sounds into new heartbreaking territory. The emotions heard on Rafael’s previous album, A Fragile Geography (2015), are a welcome prequel to the crushing depths found amongst La Equidistancia – proven by Rafael at some of his recent shows:

I played a few songs from this collaboration on my last tour and I got some incredible feedback. Some people felt it was emotionally cleansing, some had tears in their eyes, it was definitely moving”.

These rough patches, as Leandro details, are “printed and encapsulated in the grooves of the vinyl. And although they can not be seen, they will remain there. I am sure that something Raf and I felt, will reach the listener”.

There’s a lot of sadness and memories in the music. I feel that one most embrace this sadness and share it; make others know we are not so different; not alone in this world”. – RAI

La Equidistancia is an album of two newly formed friends, two minds, and two lives equidistant to each other.
