About

Occulmente is an invented word that comes from the Latin verb 'occulo' (cover, conceal, hide) and the Spanish noun 'mente' meaning mind. It refers to the subconscious mind, from where the musical content of this composition emerged. It is commonly understood that we hardly know of what we have hidden away in our minds, however, whatever we have lurking in there actively influences our lives every moment. Our preferences and biases live there, the running record of all our experiences, way more information than we can remember, much more than we think we notice day to day. Occulmente is a composition of sounds from my subconscious, guided by a desire to experience chaotic individual musical fragments simultaneously within a whole musical sound.
