Eosin believes in ANALOG+DIGITAL, rather than ANALOG vs. DIGITAL. Self-Reproduction Loops is a tribute to the grooves of the vinyl record, to its crackles and clicks, skips and pops. Eosin employs pre-recorded vinyl noises and loops to create time sequences for use in live improv situations which she blends with a real-time layer of analog DJing. Combined, both layers weave unforeseeable compositions where each sound surpasses its own state of noise, loop or representation to become part of the overall sonority.

Self-Reproduction Loops is a tribute to the grooves of the vinyl record, to its crackles and clicks, skips and pops. Eosin employs pre-recorded vinyl noises and loops to create time sequences for use in live situations while mixing records with DJ techniques.

This gives way to improvisation, choosing the sounds to mix in the moment of the performance and constructing a real-time layer that blends to the one made of pre-recorded sounds. Since the origin of both is the analog source of the vinyl, there is a strong link between them, although they are processed in the digital domain for the listening experience.

The records she mixes in real-time include lock grooves and drones; they provide a strong body of bass frequencies to the compositions to which she also adds field recordings of various sources.

Combined they create compositions that begin, develop and end, each sound goes further its own state of noise, loop or representation to become part of the overall sonority.

Analog and digital are in constant communication, allowing her to use what she thinks works best in each of these fields: the manual and organic work, and the infinite possibilities of manipulating these sounds and building sequences. She believes in ANALOG+DIGITAL, rather than ANALOG vs. DIGITAL. 

The live performance of the work is where the compositions take form and exist. Of course, each time the live work is different.
