Hydrorion Remnants (2018)
as Embassador Dulgoon
Hydrorion Remnants is the articulation of a set of compositions and improvisations recorded between 2014 and 2016. With minuscule and ambiguous samples and melodic and ethereal keyboards, Embassador Dulgoon sets a humid progression of nine tracks that hatch in a chain to form a constellation of audioworlds. It is all knitted in a timeless carpet of folklore, ambient, science fiction and delirium. Recomposing an accident of impulses as rhythmic as melodic, breathes an atmosphere as close as anachronistic, constructing something like a futurism of prehistoric reminiscence. Dinosaurs and extinct trees, buildings and historical sites, the ruin of the tabernacle and the reconstruction of an ethereal ceremony, corridors and spacrafts, are translated into a sonorous plasma of concentric pulsations. A whirlpool that leads us towards a bottom populated with extinct species and gentle humming. Percutaneous vertebrae and expansive bellows gently filter a recurrent and distant whistle. Towards the end it is evident the intrauterine bubbling that breeds a kind of consanguineous chimera, the call to resurrect a musical spawn called "Hydrorion."

The Ichthyocentaur's Leap
as Rennek (2020)
Rennek "The Antediluvian Soldier" reveals his creed’s deepest heirloom. Initially hazed out, this wide-screen environment plays out like a dark micro science-fantasy audiomovie assembled through lulling horns, wandering electronic pulses, machine clatter and decontextualized dialogue snippets. This all forms a vague impression of some kind of free-falling paleo-industrial collapse loosely bound together for the listener through ‘The Antediluvian Soldier’s’ salvaged black box of a previous civilization. Water churning, shifting walls of muddy sounds, and a mysterious synthesizer melody leads us to gaze into ‘The Moon Pool’ and look at the reflection of it all. What’s left of a succession of human kind’s poor choices? We are only offered a small glimpse into this world slowly crumbling into a thousand pieces before taking the ‘The Ichthyocentaur’s Leap’ into a primitive rhythmic return to where it all started.

with Nonlocal Society (2017)
“Plural Singularity” surged from a collection of microscopic footage filmed by Siet Rae, where organic and artificial found elements of everyday character were elevated altogether with music to create environments and creatures of an abstract science fiction multiverse.
All sounds and arrangements were composed and layered up in distance simultaneously at the outskirts of Valdivia by Rev. 33 and in Santiago de Chile by Embassador Dulgoon, working with the images as a score taking in consideration such aspects like movement, material, texture, space, color and shape.
50 copies cassette edition for the Nonlocal Society’s 2017 European Tour.
A second unlimited edition was released on CD in 2018.

as False Sir Nicholas (2013)
'Myriad Tongues' certainly taps into a dense imaginary world of mythical beasts and previously uncharted landscapes that only the most adventuresome dare to explore. Burrowed systems of organ tones, colossal reptile grunts, washes of native twang, shapeshifting effects, reversed sliding tendril of dangerous fauna, rowdy bird calls, heroic guitar trod, and interconnected tunnels of feedback are all mapped out for you to seek by the mysterious False Sir Nicholas.
Recorded at the temple of many faces

as Archimboldos (2020)
In 2017, producer and musician Nicolas Carcavilla AKA Embassador Dulgoon, teamed up with Felipe Crocco M.D., synth player and soundscapist in Martes Muerto, to bear the duo Archimboldos. Their sound is a chimera of cinematic drills, exotic fantasies and sci-fi delusions assembled through heavily loaded synth and sampling layers. Sometimes ludicrous and whimsical, astounding and mysterious, or even fabled and nostalgic, their music is always painstakingly crafted and technically evocative. Archimboldos works through a strange alteration in the notions of invention and reference, unraveling a narrative musical journey of unpredictable melodic routes and subtly articulated sonic deviation and discovery. An inventive serenity wanders and flirts among motifs and topics related to generic soundtracks, obscure library music and new age psychedelia, as a curiosity rover fluently reviewing a forgotten, timeless archive. Armed with sharp and uncanny determination, the duo shapes their tracks as soundscapes that disguise and mutate, creating and mocking motifs still yet to be. Guessing, for example, an alien's lonely hoot or whoop, the viscous crawl of a post-apocalyptic creature, or the old hymns of a nation not yet founded. Exactomondo works with the same strata of their debut LP, Starcave Mèmoires, digging further in the veins of the duo's soundmine, expanding their sonic spectrum by organizing new data, enhancing their equipment's capacities and deepening their imagery. They have perfected their sonic spacecraft. If their first release found an orbit, Exactomondo could be their first landing.

A Morphology of Wonders
as Timelash (2020)
Timelash is the evolution of Embassador Dulgoon’s cryptozoological sci-fi opus ‘Hydrorion Remnants’ converging with Corum’s surreal sonic mapping as ‘Beguiling Isles’. The combined cinematic vision jettisons listeners through a psychedelic wormhole far beyond the usual perception of known audio latitude.
Aguirre has gone all out to inject this tribal dino DNA double slab of wax presented as twelve expansive and mesmerizing tracks of historical mutations linking early communication developments with speculative astrobiological impressions heard as mysterious & riveting melodies that wash over dizzying percussive styles and suspenseful ambience. A variety of unexampled sounds take shape throughout as tectonic tablature, reptilian choral movements, bubbling bioluminescence, tube calls, orogenic bells, crustacean chatter, lost continent scales, high plains drifting riffs, and primordial soup lapping splashes revealing to listeners a living mural that is ’A Morphology of Wonders'. The conjuring of cratonic creature harmonics resonate wildly from this interdimensional duet, emerging as Neopangaea music of now.
2xLP Edition of 300 copies, comes with a giant poster...

as Embassador Dulgoon (2021)
A continuation of the visions released on "Hydrorion Remnants" ––— this time 10 musicians from the Chilean experimental circuit were challenged to incursionate together, as a sort of impossible superband, into a cartography of 5 scenarios that were presented at first as temporary structural boards for the guests to interact with soundscapes and motifs. The musicians were locked at Mauve Zone Magick ( Dulgoon's former studio in Santiago) and compelled to jam hundreds of times while the scenes/tracks were playing. Some brainwash work was done in between jams too, and pictures and movies were projected at the laboratory in order to trigger certain ideas and abilities on the gifted musicians. After all the jam sessions were chewed and processed, all the material was re arranged, re composed on the strangest ways and mixed by the embassador. The results are 5 very eclectic and capricious scenes that suggests cosmic tales on a wetland planet, its mysteries and the fables of some of its denizens.
