Etched Traumas is more than happy to welcome Jimmy Watt from Chile. Watt’s work methodology focuses mainly on the capture, extraction, editing and storage of audio samples from different sources.
He transforms, relentlessly, curtails, beheads and sews sound works from different backgrounds and authors, providing the glue that comes from analog-digital instruments and audio processors and resulting in a “sound narration” split into parts.
His sound works do not drop below 20 minutes for just such narrative, where there is a development from defined introduction to epilogue. He detests the “digital finishing” of sound with a computer. For that reason dirty, gnawing and saturated sounds prevail (but without spoiling the record), thus achieving kind of a sound archeology. His creative concepts pursues mysticism, the occult, time, religions, the process that leads to contemplation, the silence, the pause, the suspension, death and upstarts.
