After many years releasing online music under Creative Commons Licenses we finally decided to go physical. This happens after being so confident that Audiotalaia has become much more than a netlabel and we still have a lot to offer.

We start this new adventure with the outstanding quality of the artists delivering the first physical edition in Audiotalaia: L’Eix’s “Empra Mots”.

L’Eix (“The Axis” in Catalan language) is a Barcelona based ensemble founded by internationally acclaimed improv & experimental guitarist and sound artist Ferran Fages and electronic music producer and critic Oriol Rosell.

L’Eix’s third member, although not a “sounding” one, is Julià Carboneras, who is in charge of developing specific interactive devices for the trio live concerts.

But beyond the different and well known characters forming it, L’Eix is not a joint venture, nor a “project”. L’Eix is a band in its most traditional sense. A group unit producing songs from an experimental point of view.

Far from experimental music’s usual gimmicks, L’Eix seeks to establish a work flow mixing its members’ background on experimental philosophy and practice and their love and open ears towards other kinds of music. In that sense, L’Eix is a constant dialogue between disciplines, languages and ways to understand sound and music under the song-composing condition.

The very structure of the tracklist on “Empra Mots”, the addition of a Re-do album as a download gift — involving a long array of friends and collaborators, from classical players to poets to pop musicians and IDM producers— and even some not-so-inside jokes... all of these help show that L’Eix is looking forward to generating both discussion and complicities within the sonic arts. But, above all that, they want to make great, memorable songs.

“Empra Mots” is a listening experience that drifts between pop, folk and experimental minimalism flirting with various genres and styles, wrapped in a subjacent, extremely ironic sense of humour based on the trio members’ condition as Catalan speakers. A very unique record brought to you by a no less unique label.
