“Bahía Mansa is the sound project of musician Iván Aguayo. He has released a series of albums emphasizing the textural exploration of ambient minimalism from an ecological perspective, using electronic instruments and field recordings.
At the beginning of 2022, Colony Collapse contacted Bahía Mansa and, given their mutual interest in each other’s art, the idea of collaborating from their respective disciplines was born. Thus, “costa documental”, a collaborative piece of music-sculpture created by the musician Iván Aguayo and the sculptor Justin Pape, was born from their interest in exploring ecology in a sustainable way.
“This album was born in order to document my conversations with the sea and thus reconfigure a narrative towards a more oceanic perspective. It was inspired by photographs, memories, travels, and faces found on the Pacific Ocean coast during these last two years.””
