about

Alba is the Spanish word for the moment when the first light of day appears, before the sun rises, and all things appear magical. Argentinian Federico Durand returns to 12k with music for dawn listening. His small and humble sounds of everyday life are crafted with simplicity, stillness and repetition - making music how children play.

Alba features a cover illustration by reknown Irish artist
Emer Tumilty.
