More Info

"NEW SERIES FRAMEWORK: An extension of our CONCRETE ELECTRONICS NOISE, a brand new mix-up of unusual conceptions of sound material by young unknown composers, well known not-so-young composers and old but clever composers.

Israel Martinez (Guadalajara, Mexico 1979) scope of work goes from sound to multidisciplinary art, including experimental and non-academic electroacoustic music, actions, video, installation and site-specific projects, mainly focused on sound as source and theme. He got the Distinction Award at Prix Ars Electronica 2007 in the Digital Musics Category for his sound piece 'Mi Vida'.
Since 2003 he has performed and exhibited in several countries throughout America and Europe. He's co-founder of the Mexican label Abolipop and the mind behind electronica project Nebula 3. He has collaborated with artists from different fields (including his brother's project Lumen lab) and writes about alternative music and culture in several Mexican publications since the middle of 90's. His music often explores and blends field recordings and synthesis, creating a hypnotic sonic environment." [label info]
