Short film (7'51") . An Archeological expedition in the underground music scene, looking to unearth the lost gems of the movement. We meet an investigator that is obsessed with demos, obscure recordings and bands, who wants to resurrect this rare catalog and put it out to the masses.
TIERRA FéRTIL: THE QUEST FOR THE LOST HIT
In the music scene there’s a layer known as the underground. That’s where the projects are born, record demos, self-release records, shoot videos, play live, print t-shirts and flyers, and so on. It encompasses most genres and it works more or less like an ecosystem, in a delicate balance always on the verge of extinction.
Some artists find a niche where they can thrive in order to make their career sustainable over time, but… what happens to the projects that never reach those numbers? The truth of the matter is that most bands eventually split up, and the members embark on new projects or change course completely.
BUT WHAT ABOUT THE SONGS…?
Those of us who are part of the music industry, whether it be as musicians, managers, producers, studio engineers, journalists, fans, etc, we all have our own catalog of amazing records and songs by up-and-coming bands and artists that we keep humming—even years after they’ve broken up. Infectious tunes that you just can’t stop listening to, those that made you and a few dozen misfits go to every show back then.
Tierra Fértil is born as an archaeological expedition in search for those lost treasures. The explorer is mixed with the bottle collector, the recycler and the melomaniac. Our mission? To separate the outdated from the useful, and give it a new life: maybe it needs a restoration, a remaster, or maybe the fate of that deserted song is to reincarnate in the voice of a new artist.
