Sajjra - The Sun Remains the Same
Sajjra is the song project of Chris Galarreta (guitar, effects, voice, sampler and sequences). The 4 tracks of this release go from apocalyptic noise-songs with drops of tropical rhythms to ethereal, oceanic and industrial sounds.
The last track ‘The Sound Remains The Same’ is an extreme trip into resonances and atmospheres of live processed guitar. Through the extreme use of an apparent monotony, Sajjra generates a continuous sound-space with a timeless effect. The record is inspired by behaviors of the North Sea along the Dutch coast: an intense landscape of slow monotonous changes or constantly moving storms. Produced in The Hague (The Netherlands) in 2014, after long beach-walks.
But there is also the atmosphere of the slow and heavy Andean processions, keeping the spirit of their traditional music ensembles. Galarreta was born in Lima, Peru.
