Move over, Nirvana — this is the real “In Utero.”
A Brooklyn toddler is releasing her first album — recorded while still in the womb.
Luca Yupanqui’s first release, “Sounds of the Unborn,” is the “first album created by a person while they were still inside the womb,” according to her Brooklyn-based label, Sacred Bones Records.
Her “expression of life in its cosmic state” was recorded with “biosonic MIDI technology” attached to the belly of her then-pregnant mom, Elizabeth Hart, formerly of experimental rock band Psychic Ills.
Dad Iván Diaz Mathé — who has worked with dub legend Lee “Scratch” Perry — then used his synthesizers to “transcribe the vibrations” during “joint meditation” sessions for the Brooklyn-based musicians, Sacred Bones said.
The result is an “expression of a soul that hasn’t yet seen the light of day nor taken a single breath of air.”
“It is a message that comes from a different realm, a sublayer of our existence,” the label said.
Yupanqui, now a toddler, isn’t just getting credited — Sacred Bones insists she was the driving force for releasing the record.
“Her awareness of what was happening was astounding. She would open her eyes wide and stare at her parents, seemingly recognizing her own sounds from the womb, knowing that they were revisiting those rituals that made them come together as one,” the label said, describing the moment Yupanqui first heard her “music.”
“Those mixing sessions were technically the first time Luca had heard her own music, but her reaction made it clear that that wasn’t really the case — she had already lived it.”
“Sounds of the Unborn” is released April 1. Womb rock fans can also buy the MIDI Biodata Sonication Device used to record it for $200.
