about

This new duo release “Index of Refraction” was recorded at Harvestworks in NY. An Index of Refraction of a material is a dimensionless number that describes how light propagates through that medium. Inspired by this definition, and translated/transposed to musical vocabulary– an index of refraction could be an analogy to the way in which acoustical instruments and the human voice behave when they are sound processed through electronic devices.

This concept in mind, Tabuenca/Naphtali improvised music while processing and manipulating their sounds, both electronically and acoustically, in order to create new sonic landscapes, each track is based on the refractive index of a different medium.
