Ogive, Folds. A collaborative project between Chris Herbert (UK) and Elías
Merino (ES), Ogive is an exploration of intermeshing and contrasting approaches to sound. These works have
slowly crystallized through organic collage combined with computer music methodologies such as generative and
algorithmic processes, and sound synthesis. Driven by a shared aesthetic and a desire to work beyond the bounds
of their individual approaches, Ogive focuses on the beauty of imperfections and gestural sound accidents.
Ogive's complex sound world synthesizes reduced sound particles, which create complex behaviours, while
constructing both active and static microstructures culminating in an endlessly shifting correspondence between
laminar plateaus and surface details. The tracks are the product of an extended period of experimentation,
investigation, and refinement, finally fixed during winter, 2017.
