CLARO DE LUNA - "La Voz Quebrada"
La Voz Quebrada is the second album by Claro de Luna, the post / progressive rock project by Jose Acuña, released after more than two years since the debut album, Lo Que Ha Sido Y Lo Que Será. It is a conceptual album, inspired by the gaps and voids in the communication process that we experiment every day. Although it's an instrumental album, the vocals in some songs serves as an extra instrument, along with invited musicians, playing cello, sax and flute. The gaps and voids in the communication process affect our daily lives, either talking with friends and strangers, or via the role of mass communication such as the press. We are surrounded by errors in language, used to express what we really want to say. The slightest misinterpretations can deform and mutate the message, beyond it's original meaning. When the words we say can't be expressed as truth, and the message can't be delivered to where or whom it is intended, the fragile chain in communication breaks, and our interpretation refracts the original message and its primary intention. The interpretation, the intention, the approach, the context… are some of the factors present in the communication process that could transform an original message into something completely different, leading to missinformation, ill-founded opinions, personal conflicts and many other social and individual problems.
