I. A. Bericochea


Ignacio Aguilera Bericochea (I.A.Bericochea) is a producer who, in the spirit of Persona Records, comes not from the DJ scene but from an eclectic background. In Bericochea's case, lots of bands and the study of physics. A bass player and electronic music producer who is inspired by the concrete world of materials, his haunting music explores the way sounds are transformed from substance to wave and back again, mutating the noises of wood, metal and everyday detrius into otherworldy atmospheres.

Ignacio Aguilera Bericochea (I.A.Bericochea) is a producer who, in the spirit of Persona Records, comes not from the DJ scene but from an eclectic background. In Bericochea's case, lots of bands and the study of physics. A bass player and electronic music producer who is inspired by the concrete world of materials, his haunting music explores the way sounds are transformed from substance to wave and back again, mutating the noises of wood, metal and everyday detrius into otherworldy atmospheres. Beat driven, dusky and textured, Bericochea’s tracks haunt dark rooms and twilit spaces with their shadows, but the unfurling melodies are nontheless playful. Bericochea debuted on Hawtin’s M_nus in 2003 with the EP ‘A’, and released his debut full length, ‘Rojo’, the same year.

Here’s what xlr8r said about Rojo: “It's only coincidence that Ignacio Aguilera Bericochea's name is so reminiscent of the cochlea, that bony, shell-shaped part of the inner ear that's the heart of our hearing, but how fitting it is. I.A. Bericochea's music, a profoundly thinned-out minimal techno that's more absent than present, offers the profoundest kind of intense listening, grounded with bass that reverberates deep in the body and graced with white noise that seems to graze the very surface of the ear drum, like summer grasses brushing against weathered cement. "Rojo-like red eye," which reflects blood vessels in the eye of a photographed subject-is a journey into the pulsing heart of sound." And The Wire: “Bericochea brings just enough emotional edge and sonic vibrancy to his dry minimalist beats and deep quavering bass patterns to give them a stealthy, unsettling life of their own.

His compositions seem to come out of nowhere, accumulating an undeniable presence that lingers on long after the final shudder” I.A. Bericochea’s next album, Sueño (2006), was mastered by Stefen Betke (aka Pole) and released on a label created for the purpose called Rojo.it. Textura said: “There's no question the Basic Channel-Chain Reaction spirit is alive and well on I.A. Bericochea's forty-minute Sueño ... 'Sueño' means 'dream' in Spanish and there's certainly a spectral quality to the material ...

Often sounding as if it was recorded in a hollow chamber, Bericochea's minimal techno manages to sound both skeletal and full, as showers of cymbal patterns, groaning bass lines, echoing reverberations, and skipping pulses come to the fore and then recede.” The evasive and mysterious qualities of Beriochea’s sound arise from his broad exploration of sound in diverse contexts. In 1995 started playing bass in bands: metal, punk and instrumental. The best known was Actitud de Rechazo, a metal band that played in Spain, the most curious was Carosi, an emo-hardcore band which did an aventure to tour the west coast of the USA and Mexico. In the early 00s following a stint studying physics at the University of Madrid, Ignacio Aguilera started to record found sounds, experimenting with beats and transformations, finding imediate success with his solo projects for with M_nus. Bericochea’s tracks have graced several minus compilations and mixes in the last few year, including DE9 Transitions and Magda’s ‘She’s a dancing machine’.

He has toured solo throughout Spain and Mexico. Read more on Last.fm. User-contributed text is available under the Creative Commons By-SA License; additional terms may apply..
