about

Released on UK based label Bunkland Records 'Plaza de Armas' is the latest outing for Antony Miltons PoW project. As with the previous works in this series, works from India, Pakistan and NZ, the album is based upon field recordings that have been subtly layered or treated so as to draw out the mood of pieces and to enhance the natural narrative flow of the album as a whole. Most times these treatments are imperceptible to the listener.
Recorded in Peru Chile, Ecuador, Bolivia and Argentina much of the album favours distant sounds more reminiscent of day dreams over strident documentary recordings. The sounds of a vibrant but distant fiesta band drifts up a mountain valley on the wind, a childrens pipe band rehearse in a broken down church, frogs chirrup in a palpably warm dusk, an 80 year old woman sings a lullaby on a jungle boat.

CD version available from www.pseudoarcana.com

Packaged in a gatefold recycled card sleeve the package includes a booklet of photos and writings as well as a 3" cdr containing a 20min video file (.wmv) of a film that Milton made about his journey.
