about

Being our second album, we wanted to expand our musical horizons. Exploring a new, richer sound, with a wider instrumentation and well thought (fuller) arrangement. The rhythmic and improvised sections were all recorded live. Brass melodies and psychedelic sounds were recorded later using overdubbing. The music reflects such influences as Herbie Hancock (Maiden Voyage, Headhunters, and his Mwandishi era), Miles Davis, Hermeto Pascoal, Cortijo y Su Máquina del Tiempo, Luis Alberto Spinetta, and the funk/jazz sound from the 70s.

The concept regarding the naming of, "El Experimento Caribeño" stems from:

1. The creative process was an experiment in itself for the group in relation to the arrangement of the music, unfamiliar context of instruments, planning the recording sessions, and exploring textures throughout the process of overdubbing.

2. The cover art for the album is based on the history of Puerto Rico and Caribbean countries. There are images of the African, Indigenous, and European heritages. There is a direct reference to American scientist, Dr. Cornelius Rhodes, who performed experiments on the island.
