Intense Situations of Peril returns with a new project, Flor de Muerto, inspired by Day of the Dead ("flor de muerto" refers to the marigolds used in traditional Día de los Muertos celebrations). Initiated as a recuperative response to a January 2009 live performance of their project Torreyana, participants used field recordings from the Old Town and Ocean Beach neighborhoods of San Diego, California, as well as highly manipulated samples of foley and sound effects from selected films using the San Diego area as a location.


released October 1, 2009

Track 4 improvised and recorded live by Glenn Bach, Kenilworth Square East, Milwaukee, WI, 30 March 2009.

Intense Situations of Peril is an improvising ensemble of electronic/laptop musicians who perform new, hybridized soundtracks to the cities in which they perform. Source material sampled from the audio track of a mainstream motion picture filmed in a particular city is collaged with raw audiovisual data collected on location. With a fluctuating roster of touring and local musicians and video artists, the ensemble samples and manipulates the City itself, improvising a completely unrehearsed image stream and soundscape, a one-of-a-kind audiovisual remix of place.
