A SECRET SYSTEM OF CAVES AND CONDUITS -
A BACKWARDS AND DILAPIDATED PROVINCE
THUNDER BLUE SERIES
CD • 2015 • ATR002

A SECRET SYSTEM OF CAVES AND CONDUITS IS:
CAMILLE MANDOKI (VOCALS, PIANO, SYNTHESIZERS, LOOPS AND SAMPLERS) AND ROD ESQUIVEL (GUITAR).

A BACKWARDS AND DILAPIDATED PROVINCE IS A LONG-FORM NEW COMPOSITION BY A TALENTED YOUNG PAIR OF MUSICIANS FROM MEXICO CITY: CAMILLE MANDOKI AND ROD ESQUIVEL. A SECRET SYSTEM OF CAVES AND CONDUITS SETS THE SHORT POEM OF W.H. AUDREN, ‘IN PRAISE OF LIMESTONE’, INTO A DARK SHIMMERING SOUND THAT SLOWLY TURNS INTO COMPELLING, MAGICAL AND RITUALISTIC STATE WHERE HAUNTING VOCALS-LOOPS OF CAMILLE MANDOKI AND DYNAMIC THICK-ETHEREAL GUITAR RIFFS BY ROD ESQUIVEL BUILDS UP AN EVOCATIVE TONE OF SHADES AND SHADOWS THAT ARE HAPPENING ALONG AN ONGOING SHIFTS OF ATMOSPHERES. TWO TRACKS SUBMERGING THE LISTENER TO AN ENGAGING UNDERGROUND PATH. A BACKWARDS AND DILAPIDATED PROVINCE OPENS YOUR EARS TO A STRIKING AND FRESH DRONE-BASED MUSIC.
