MALALA LEKANDER

CRUCE DEL ESTRECHO DE MAGALLANES
[ACROSS THE STRAIGHT OF MAGELLAN]

A movement between two shores, an approach.

A discovery journey where the horizon captains, and surrendering to the vastness of the landscape is the only alternative.

A strong urge to dissolve time, in a vain attempt to suppress distance.

Leaving once and again.


And persisting, always persisting.



This work developed in the Magellan Strait between Bahía Azul and Punta Delgada (Primera Angostura), on board Transbordadora Austral Broom S.A. vessels Fueguino, Patagonia and Pionero; and thanks to the cooperation of María Chaura, Tabsa´s Operations Chief; and Captains Rigoberto Torres Vargas, Juan Tellez Rojo, Juan Velásquez Barría, Sergio Arteaga, Hernán Rodríguez and Fabián Vera Bórquez.

The sound was conceived and performed by Rodrigo Sánchez Mariño and Tomás Guiñazú, using sailing audios, FM Angostura 104.9 radio recordings, and Morse code messages. At the same time, another layer was designed with hundreds of sounds from several sources, which were mastered and can be heard throughout the work.
