Chrs Galarreta (Peru). Very active in the South American experimental scene since 1995. The sublime and the uncertainty are present in his actions, he gets them using broken electrical appliances, homemade audiovisual instruments, field streamings, field recordings, feedback systems, the induction of errors in the software-hardware and in the way to play musical instruments. He transduce imperceptible physical phenomena for humans to an audible dimension (as electromagnetic fields or sub-acuatic sounds). He is mostly interested in the exploration of the aforementioned interfaces and auto-regulated systems to apply them to create inmersive experiences, experimental songs and des-compositions, hacking the human perception of space-time as a form of civil disobedience and social auto-reorganization. He comes from an autodidact formation, today he lives between France and Netherlands and continues developing his independent projects and researches in “Stichting Centrum” at Den Haag. His work has taken him to make concerts, installations, performances, lectures and workshops in Latin America and Europe.
Galarreta was founder member of the independent label and association Aloardi and of bands like Sajjra (current solo experimental-song project), DiosMeHaViolado (soloist project sometimes in collaboration with Claudia Machuca, Fabian Escalante, Yuri Gutierrez and Aldo Castillejos), Evamuss (as soloist), Azucena Kantrix (with Wilder Gonzales), Tica (with Fabiola Vasquez), Garrapata (with Gabriel Castillo and Rolando Apolo), Ninguna Ninfula (with Sabrina Melenotte), Miasma (with Sergio Sanchez), 50 Otages (with Mathiu Finisterre, Bernard Bruit and Julien Otavi) among others.
