Album Notes
In June of 2007, Radio Free Clear Light showcased their Music Box performance art piece at SomArts in San Francisco, California. With the goal to perform an improvised invocation utilizing all of the elements that entered the space, they paired up with Carlos Cartagena to transform a portion of the gallery into a living music box. Costumed as ballerinas, they invited the audience into the performance, introducing noisemakers constructed by Cartagena. Participants were guided to create sounds with these unorthodox instruments. The sounds were recorded with multiple microphones and integrated with loops and pre-recorded drones which had been prepared especially for the event. In this way, a new and ever evolving piece of music was given life. Frolicking with their audience-turned-accomplice under the eerie glow of video projections, RFCL gave the noise a musical shape. The recordings extracted from this unrepeatable event have been meticulously re-mixed and refined to create a whole new animal, birthed from the ashes of that first live incarnation.
The Heart of The Music Box delivers a dubby experimental atmosphere, where acoustic noise, haunting vocalizations and heavy bass are fused in a web of careful attention.

About The Artists:
Radio Free Clear Light is currently composed of three artists:
Juan Carlos Mendizabal (aka Kyron) - Native to El Salvador, Kyron is a composer and electronic musician willing to explore a wide range of musical genres. His experiments with improvisation and noise influenced electronic compositions have led to the release of many titles over the last 20 years.
Etanna Sack –a Californian original, Etanna is an explorer of ritual activity and noise.
Lydia Harari - is a photographer, dancer and experimental video artist.
All the work done by RFCL is process driven and the end product is given little, if any, consideration during the process itself. In this way, attention can be devoted solely to the act of creating.
