Fernando Perales/Viva La Muerte

“the Andrei Rublev experience” tour/Europe/2012

Fernando Perales, musician, performer, cinema critic and box trainer,
he was born in Buenos Aires, Argentina, in 1971. He is one of the most
important figures of the experimental music and avant garde scene of
Buenos Aires, in Argentina.

Since 1995, for almost 10 years, Fernando Perales was part of Reynols,
the surrealist and experimental Argentinian cult band. With them he
released more than 30 records and tracks on dozens of compilations for
experimental and noise albums from USA, Europe and Japan.

Viva La Muerte is Fernando Perales´s solo project, based on free
improvisation and on the non-semantic difference between noise and
traditional musical sounds, using composition and execution
techniques, working without a harmonic and melodic structure,
focusing on exploring the timbric and material aspect of sound and
noise. Viva La Muerte is a unipersonal orchestra, composed of guitars,
tapes, contact mics, pieces of metal, garage tools, metal sheets and
industrial matrix fallen into disuse, creating a mix of noise, drone
and post-industrial minimalism.

Viva La Muerte has three records: “Necrofolia y tradición” (2009,
Facón Records, Argentina), “Punshiment and expiation” released through
Electronik Music, London, and “Cuartos azules” in collaboration with
the musician and producer from New Zealand, Antony Milton. And a
track, in the compilation “Klingt.org: 10 Jahre Bessere Farben”
(Mikroton Recordings, MIKROTON CD 5/6) (Russia).

Among other projects, and after the end of Reynols, he formed ÜL, a
guitar trio, with another former member of the band, Anla Courtis.
With ÜL, he had released 3 records since 2007, through Pjorn Records
(Scotland), Zhelezobeton from Russia and Facón Records, from
Argentina.

Since 2004, Fernando Perales shared stages with Sabu Toyozumi (Japan),
Damo Suzuki (ex Can), Christof Kurzmann, (Austria), Theo Nabicht
(Germany), Marcelo Armani (Brasil), Ramiro Molina, Luis Toto Alvarez
(Chile), Lasse Marhaug, John Hegre, Sir Dupermann, The Golden
Serenades, Tore Honore BOE (Norway), James Plotkin (USA), Antony
Milton, Phil Dadson (New Zealand),….

In Buenos Aires, beside Viva La Muerte, Fernando Perales has several
collective works: the Doble Cuarteto, ( 4 saxs + 4 prepared guitars),
a duet Des-Tructura, and b[RAZA]r with the brasilian drummer Marcelo
Armani.

This is his second tour in Europe, playing in the UK, Austria,
Germany, Russia, France, Greece, Italy, Portugal, and Spain.
