CONCERTS

Circuit bending, glitch, sampling, white noise, hardward hacking, and sound waste which are handled with a methodology of his own; without taking away from the improvisation as a main source, he resorts to the action in order to create sound. Soundscapes overflowing with a dense mass of maniacs, shiny, gaudy, depressive and euphoric sounds; Bucolic, abysmal and mined roads spaces, landscapes create an ominous sound universe that recalls the failure of the future.


Juanjose has collaborated with musicians and sound artists like: Elliott Sharp, Zeena Parkins, Ikue Mori, Joker Nies, Bloodyminded, Angelica Castello, Burkhard Stlang, Dan Deacon, Drew Daniels, Manrico Montero, Rogelio Sosa, Arthur Henry Fork, Mario de Vega, Remi Alvarez, Fernando Vigueras, Tuna Pase, Tiffany Defoe, Andrea Neumann, Wobbly, Shayna Dunkelman, Gary Smith, Billy Roisz, Isabelle duthoit, Chris Cogburn, amog others.
