12k is happy to present the debut release on the label from Argentinian composer Federico Durand Who has had a series of amazing releases on labels: such as Spekk, Own, and Desire Path. Federico and 12k crossed paths on a tour of Japan together in 2014 where the personal friendships among the artists and the label are such a part of what 12k is about. Sharing music and Ideas Throughout the tour led to an invite to make an album.

It's no accident That Federico's music has a dusty air of nostalgic surrounding it. It has always been a very personal affair. Songs inspired family, local life and the world around him are woven by hand with a selection of very physical instruments. He works like a craftsman, piecing together fragments of sound from cassette recorders, small instruments and loopers and creates music that's the softspoken as he is. No pretenses, no disguises, just the most honest and down-to-earth music that can be made. Broken Melodies spinning from tape reels, the sounds of bells and small found objects being played with care ... The music is as beautiful as it is introspective, like a small window of antique glass looking right into Federico's soul.

In his own words:
"Through the mirror in Spanish means" Through the mirror ". I am fascinated with the experience of putting a mirror in front of another: as a miracle, the image turns in a loop that flows into infinity. Loops in the mirror get less clear with each repetition, the color becomes diffuse and greener. When these loops turn into a lullaby we can enter the other side of the mirror: a place of delight and insight.

Through the Looking Glass is a dream of beauty, A love of handcrafted music.
