PAULO CASIO / MÍNIMO / HR-61 / DIGITAL EP / 2020
MINIMO was established in the early 1990’s, in a post-war Chile that saw the beginnings of a political process of transition which left a country and a whole generation full of broken promises and no access to tranquility or love.
Using borrowed instruments and very basic equipment, these musical compositions, tinged with nostalgia and hopelessness, took shape among the streets of neighborhoods- among slums and clubs that had used to be movie theaters.
In the process of digitally mastering the original magnetic tape recordings, the compositions in this release stay true to their original medium. As an act of spiritism, the music again appears driven by the dark tape that slides over the heads of the player, wrapping itself over and over again in the plastic reels of the cassette
