Originally released in 2004. A travelogue from the Andean landscapes through an electronic lens. Tintin features in this first stage in an ancient/new adventure of spirituality and technology. Iguazú is the first part of a new CD books project which follows Tintin across the world, mixing music with his adventures in one electronic vision. In this case, it's a "Magical Mystery Tour" over hundreds of years of Andean music. Classic songs like "Carnavalito" and "El condor pasa" get a treatment never heard before. You can close your eyes and see Machu Picchu, hear the wind through the ruins, and smell the old carpets of Tiahuanaco. The acoustic instruments have been interpreted by the best Spanish specialists, some were even recorded in a museum dedicated to ethnic instruments. Inside the CD book there is an illustrated history of this culture, filled with interesting pictures about the instruments, clothing, enamelware, and iconography, all of which had a strong impact on the conceptual art of the 20th century, and provided inspiration to many artists, like Mondrian. The leitmotifs of these songs were written in the 17th and 18th centuries and were the fruit of a cultural interaction: the Spanish conquest sent its soldiers, who brought with them the popular songs of the Spanish golden century. These two styles were subsequently mixed together with other melodies of this rare culture. Welcome to the magical world of the Incas, a culture at the source of hundreds of stories about aliens and UFOs: spirit and technology. CD-ROM includes Mac and PC-compatible content.
