Back in May, he has released a new album called Carpintero which is out via Belgian label Fuego en Casa. 5 cuts of synth music, sound design and dark ambient mastered by Rafael Anton Irisarri at Black Knoll Studio (New York).
Today we have the pleasure to share the official video for the track “C_2“.It responds to music and has been created using Max4live plugins with ableton live and max / msp Jitter. He explains: “C_2 is one of the tracks of the first release under my own name (“Carpintero” released in Brussels label Fuego en Casa).
This audiovisual project started to be developed as a special live performance at the Sonar Festival in Barcelona. Everything (music and the visuals responding to it) is developed in a custom ensemble within an ableton live set. The ensemble contains custom max4live audio and video plugins communicating with each other. The visuals respond in real time to the music. Carpintero is released both in vinyl and digital.”
