"The field recording of street vendors in an outdoor market in the Andean high plains of Chile, one of the driest deserts in the world, fascinated us. You could tell there was so much life in the people buying and selling, despite it being recorded doing the pandemic (much of what is sold or talked about in the recording had to do with Covid). So we wanted the composition (for saxophone and cello) to be as eclectic yet mournful as we imagined the field sounds."
