[Review] Santiago Fradejas – 16 Pieces for Electric Guitar & Electroacoustic Ensemble

16 Pieces for Electric Guitar & Electroacoustic Ensemble by Santiago Fradejas

Because there is so much incredible music coming out all the time, documenting it is becoming a bit of a nightmare. Thankfully, I’m subscribed to enough Facebook music groups to keep me abreast as to what new sounds are popping up.

One of the best new artists I’ve come across is a Chilean composer called Santiago Fradejas. He works comfortably in the fields of electroacoustic music, post-industrial soundscapes, drone, improv and contemporary classical. This particular album really highlights the wide range of genres he’s able to tackle.

Santiago’s work is worth seeking out. It’s my hope that he gets signed to a label who can properly promote him, and soon.

El Club de Jazz is the finest podcast I’ve run across in terms of new jazz and improvisational music. The show is broadcast in Spanish, but you need not understand the language fluently to indulge in all the fine music they offer. ECdJ also offers other podcasts, so consider subscribing to them via RSS feel.
