Occulmente is an invented word that comes from the Latin verb 'occulo' - to cover, conceal, hide and the Spanish noun 'mente' meaning mind. It refers to the subconscious mind.
It is commonly understood that we hardly know what is hidden away in our minds, however, whatever it is 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 can possibly notice day to day. Things we didn't know we knew. The material in Occulmente comes from this space, emerging to be woven into this weird, beautiful, chaotic and disconcerting web of a string quartet.
