Llahuar Leh is an electronic experimental music and sound art project that combines organic ambient atmospheres with chaotic rhythms derived from industrial and techno, all composed with soundscapes recordings made by Erick Ruiz Arellano in more than 30 countries since 2002, mainly in Asia and America.
The sounds are catalogued, edited and sampled with a technique inspired by cinematographic montage, creating imaginary scenarios that result from the improvised mix of sounds from different parts of the world.
Llahuar Leh not only contemplates the harmonious side of the planet, its nature, languages and rituals, but it is also an expression of its dark side, its decay, curses and malfunctions, the extinction of calm.
