About Rafael Anton Irisarri

Originally based in Seattle, Rafael Anton Irisarri is an American artist who composes ambient, drone, and post-minimalist music. His recordings heavily utilize field recordings, bowed guitars, strings, and electronics, creating dense clouds of blurry, hypnotic sound that often have a mournful, elegiac quality. He has performed concerts in collaboration with numerous experimental, electronic, and indie musicians, and has co-curated numerous experimental music festivals and concerts. He also records shoegaze-influenced ambient techno as the Sight Below, and collaborates with dream pop singer/songwriter Benoît Pioulard under the name Orcas. ~ Paul Simpson
