Jorge Reyes & Francisco Lopez - UAISCM4: Tialoc (tape, Obuh Records, 1991)
Although I usually don't post many things by the same artists in few days apart, I here post another tape by Francisco Lopez, this time in collaboration with Mexican artist Jorge Reyes. The reason for posting is, besides of course it being a lost classic, is the fact that Jorge Reyes died last saturday of heart failure at the age of 56. I met him a couple of times and saw him play his great music, using all sorts of pre columbian musical instruments as well as using his body for percussion purposes. He was a kind and gentle person. Lopez here plays stones, electronic treatments, tape manipulations, recording and mixing. Nice music for this sad day.
