Rafael Flores

Profile:
Rafael Flores, spanish composer, sound and video artist active since the early 1980s.
His whole work is milestone of experimental music and sound exploration, he produces audio/videoworks in a very much personal way too hard to define. Rafael Flores build a solid personal universe with an intelligent use of natural recordings and the methods of musique concrete, collages and plenty of other vanguard approaches, mixed with a particular sense of humour next to spirit of dada and surrealism. One of the most active sound artists in the industrial music scene (international cassette network, experimental video, radio and mail art), he influenced new generations of experimental sound artists. His most notorious feature is the intimate poetical touch in the soundworks, quite unusual for the industrial music scene. From 1991 to 2001, Rafael Flores reduced musical activity, and was involved with videoart, releasing just a very limited soundworks as "friends only" private editions. After a long pause, he returns to editorial activity in 2002.
Rafael Flores has published numerous works under his own name and also as Comando Bruno. Was founder member of Diseño Corbusier band and The International Mail Music Group. Many collaboration works followed with like-minded musicians, GX Juppiter-Larsen, Francisco López, Neo Zelanda, Victor Nubla, Francisco Felipe, Esplendor Geométrico, Zan Hoffman, Anton Ignorant, to name a few.
His music was released all over the world by such labels as Monochrome Vision, Banned Production, Discos Esplendor Geometrico, Korm Plastics, Zeromoon, Graf Haufen , Tonspur, and by his own labels Laboratorios No and ECDM.
