Chris Alvarado returns to Aural Films with a wonderful collaboration project with Jamsa, Finland artist Ari Porki. The meeting of two craftsmen has resulted in some exquisite sounds that explore ambient, exotic and orchestral landscapes. Listen and be transported to their Menagerie of Clouds.


released August 5, 2013

Ari Porki's music is inspired by northern nature and four extreme seasons. This closeness of the nature obligatory comes through Ari's music even it’s only through simple synthesizer sound, field-recording or sample. As music has been part of Ari Porki's life for decades, there would be some kind of highlights of Ari's past, evolving from his sub-consciousness.

Christopher Alvarado is inspired by the people he works with. A collaboration with Ari Porki brought new ideas and a new thought process to executing the right sound to match Ari's dark calmness. Being a veteran of music since 1985(Twilight Transmissions, Harsh Reality,23 Extacy), it is a nice change to start working with Ari Porki in the realm of beauty in creating clouds(the ambient body).
