Works 10° 29’ N Adina Izarra

10° 29’ N

In spite of living in South América, Caracas is situated 10° 29’ N of the equator. My home is located at 66° 53’ W. 10° 29’ N is based on Venezuelan birds: Tordos, Guacharacas, Guacamayas. The material also includes the very characteristic Amolador call — an old Spanish tradition from Galicia still present in Caracas. From the northern sounds I chose also birds and especially the sound of stones, trying to construct some kind of maracas.
