Kristoff K.Roll is not a person, it’s two. A duo. They travelled through Central America and recorded the sounds they met underway. The result was edited and used as a basis for a radioplay. It took some two years to finish. It shows. This is no usual sound collage presented as a composition, the sounds are carefully edited and placed in such a way that the atmosphere can be sensed by the listener. One is present at funny and mesmerizing situations that these two people have met. One feels the situation of a long busride with people crammed in the vehicle, interesting but comfortless. This is one of the best travel-radioplays I have ever heard. Soundrecordings are excellent, editing is mostly very exciting and (where needed) dreamy, laid back. There’s never a dull moment and once it’s finished I want to hear it again.
