Lamellar corpuscles are nerve endings in the skin responsible for sensitivity to vibration and pressure. They respond only to sudden disturbances and are especially sensitive to vibration.
“I think it started out as an effort to translate emotional states to sound pieces and melodic arrangements, which would attribute a sense of beginning and end to events that otherwise lack it. It was also a way to commemorate a moment, a soundscape or a particular day or place as a musical snapshot and to create a space where one can relive it, make it linger, re-appropriate the experience and keep it accessible in the form of a song-memory capsule. It was always about the moments of isolation when time stretches and silence takes over. Spontaneous acts of resistance against inertia and a self-invitation to explore. Also the most affordable way to travel when you’re stuck in a room.”
Laura Rubiales lives in a messy flat in Barcelona between Gothic and Raval Quarters, with a fish called Sushi and an anorexic Japanese roommate. She enjoys the sound of eggs, flies, hair growing and car windows breaking in rewind. She works as a headless living statue and will give all the money she makes from this album to sew hats for her performance. In her free time she takes old people for wheelchair strolls around the fruit market. She ́s never been to Chicago, but she’s heard that Graham Nash song. She was born in southern Greece the day of the Fall of the Berlin Wall and no one has ever noticed that she’s slightly crosseyed. Please don’t repeat this to anyone.
