Arnau Sala is a sound and visual artist based in Barcelona. As a drummer and percussionist he has been part of projects such as the guitar/drums duoÂ Les Aus, spontaneous composition outfitÂ BĂ¨stia Ferida (joining forces with his long-time collaborator AdriĂˇn de Alfonso and trumpet player Mark Cunningham from New York no-wave band Mars), Homenatges and dark noise duo Veiled (with Rob Francisco /Â M Ax Noi Mach). His first solo release, ASDC (2003), kickstarted his intuitive use of no-input mixer, bent electronics and self-built analog synths which would come to define his later solo work and slowly be incorporated in his improvisational practice. As a soloist, he has collaborated live and in the studio with artists likeÂ Lydia Lunch, Mark Cunningham, Takehisa Kosugi, Mattin, AgustĂ FernĂˇndez, Ferran Fages, Pablo Rega, Eli Keszler, RubĂ©n PatiĂ±o and Macromassa. He has released abundant material on international labels such as Scumbag Relations, Lotus Birth, Senseless Empire and Deep Fried Tapes, among others and including his own,Â Ozonokids. In 2009, he was one of the selected musicians to take part in Merce Cunninghamâ€™s Dance Company event at Mercat de les Flors in Barcelona.
The work ofÂ Claudio Rocchetti is a deep plunge into thick sound, investigating its innermost workings. Using a variety of devices such as turntables, audio cassettes, samplers, radios and microphones, often incorporating other objects and traditional instruments, Berlin-basedÂ Rocchetti builds compelling structures that employ sound as sheer matter, mass, and impact. The tarry, mesmerizing hues that characterize his â€śmusic objectsâ€ť are grounded in layers of sound detritus. From techno rhythms to slow melodies, edgy constructions to samples of choirs and strings, Rocchetti builds layered structures of elusive elements whose sources are often hidden, and enacts a mirror play which may cause dizziness.
