Secret Compound's work is characterised by a recontextualization of organic sounds, field recordings and instrumental elements, analysed 'under the microscope' in search of textures, melodic and rhythmic patterns as well as timbral structures within the original sound material, which is then transformed with various editing, sampling and synthesis techniques. The compositions alternate between rhythmic and harmonic structures and soundscapes that mix abstraction and realism. Secret Compound is a project by sound and multimedia artist Andrea Santini. The first release (March 2022) is Kitch'n Patterns, an album constructed from sounds of kitchen utensils and actions related to cooking. The BitGarden live set, selected by the Zeguma collective for circulation in the 2022-23 initiatives, is based on the sounds of insects and toads.
