  1. Always nice to hear this explorations in my neighborhood (I’m Chilean)

    Just a friendly note: The correct translation of “señales” is “signals” which is more pertinent to the subject.

    1. “Signs of Synthesis” is their English title for the album, not something we translated.

      ‘Signs’ is a homophone in English with ‘sines’, so there’s some wordplay in their chosen title.

      1. “Signs” can include the meanings expressed by “signals,” but is considerably broader, especially when used in semiotics (the study of meaning making).
