Joshua Bonnetta might be best described as a sound artist – taking recordings from this world and injecting them with the elements of digital. You can hear children arguing, birds chirping, the daily happenings of people’s lives, in Spanish and English, and the record even starts off with a man who inherited a ranch. You drop in in the middle of it, so you’re exactly sure what brought them to this point or if this was what the entire interview was centered around. He even talks about an arsonist who is seemingly immune to punishment. I think this is in Texas, and I want to say the Spanish spoken is tinged with either a Colombian or Mexican accent – they’re a bit similar to me. This feels like a dream – you’re lost and the interviewee keeps going on with no regard for your situation. The wind howls behind this strange story. This interview goes on for six minutes and a bit beyond. This is a study of the darker elements that underlie the mundane. This is art. Listen toΒ Lago (which is Spanish for lake, in case you didn’t know) below via the SoundCloud stream and see what you think of it. Cheers!
