The sound of Washe is based on the origin of the ancestral instruments acquired through travels, proximity to anthropologists and researchers,
purchases of books and sound: experimenting
with design inspired by the original
instruments and replicating its sound,
but adapting them to contemporary
scales with traditional elements
in the musical genre
or everyday implements.
After more than 10 years
of experimental work
it has generated a series
of acoustic and electro-acoustic sounds in
the families of ideophones, membranophones, string instruments and wind instruments in ancient and contemporary instruments.
These instruments have been worked segmented,
while respecting the sound, ideology and technique
of execution of each indigenous people.
Through experience and knowledge of ancestral traditions performances with live electronics, musical passages that represent these sounds
and feel of the indigenous community
in Venezuela is completed.
