Our bike is a black donkey dawning   Through lands of Curiosity. [Roberto Bolaño] The idea behind this work stems from a poem by Roberto Bolaño describing a night motorcycle  journey across the Mexican desert. The piece explores the nocturnal sonic landscape of urban  and rural locations and is structured as a sonic journey exploring real and abstract  soundscapes linked to various stages of an endless imaginary trip. The work was composed  mostly using environmental recordings captured in various urban and rural locations and  synthesized timbral and rhythmic material generated using gamelan sounds.   Felipe Otondo Felipe studied acoustics in Chile where he started composing and performing music for  experimental theatre developing several performance projects with actors and musicians. In  1999 he moved to Denmark to do post‐graduate studies in sound perception at Aalborg  University focusing on spatial sound and timbre perception. In 2005 he pursued his  composition studies at the University of York in England with Ambrose Field and Roger Marsh  focusing in electroacoustic composition and music theatre. His music has been widely played  in festivals across Europe, North and South America, as well as in Australia. He composed the  music for the BAFTA‐award winning radio drama The glassman in collaboration with Neil  Sorrell and has received awards in Brazil, Bulgaria, France and Italy. Felipe is currently a  lecturer at the Lancaster Institute for the Contemporary Arts at Lancaster University and his  music is released by the British label Sargasso.
