This Chilean musician and composer unravels his freeform jazz compositions. Recorded live at Montréal RBMA 2016.

Based in Santiago, multi-instrumentalist/producer Buen Clima studies musical composition at the University of Chile, and his music certainly reflects that pursuit. Yet while the music he makes certainly varies across his solo and band work, there are nonetheless characteristics that run through them all. Most noticeably, there’s an incredible amount of attention to the space between notes – whether within a freeform jazz composition or something more (though never entirely) conventional, the gaps and pauses are just as much a part of his songs as the music itself.
