Two contrasting other-music masters offer alternative sounds for the soul, for the spirit and for sheer sonic splendor. Mexico City multi-instrumentalist Luis Pérez Ixoneztli and partner Christopher Garcia offer extended pieces that re-create the music the Aztecs were making before the European conquest. Ritual chants sung in various native Mexican languages are performed to the accompaniment of percussion and wind instruments from Mesoamerica such as clay flutes, ocarinas, whistles made from bee’s wings and butterfly chrysalises, instruments of bone and feathers, gongs and suspended metal objects. Highly regarded Brooklyn acoustic guitarist Mike Wexler earned his props back in the mid-2000s with three albums of medieval folk–derived songs featuring his heavy-plucking solo stringwork and inventive, freeform song structures, culminating in 2012’s Dispossession (Mexican Summer), recorded with members of White Magic, The Occasion and several NYC improvisers.
