BIO
Rafael Flores is from Spain, and has recorded a number of albums under his own name and also as Comando Bruno. Rafael Flores was also founder member of Diseño Corbusier band. Many collaboration works followed with like-minded musicians (Francisco Lopez, Zan Hoffman, Avant Dernieres Pensees, Seiei Jack Nakahara, Thomas Park, Lezrod to name a few). His music was released all over the world by such labels as Discos Esplendor Geometrico, Korm Plastics, Zero Cabal, Graf Haufen Tapes, BogArt, Tonspur Tapes, Zeromoon, Monochrome Vision, Turgid Animal, etc. 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 concrte, 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.
