With a sensibility for concrète-style sampling and analog sound sculpting techniques, che manipulates recordings of acoustic instruments and synthesizers, traversing melodic ambient and kinetic waves imprinted with unpredictable beat formulas.
A lifelong multi-instrumentalist, che has lived long periods of his life in Ireland and the Bay Area before moving to Philadelphia, his current home. Influenced by his natural and urban environments, his father’s Guatemalan family tradition of composers and professional musicians, and his mother’s Native American culture. Che builds with old, new, and future musical languages informed by a heritage of jazz, latin and classical. The result is lush, layered, and likely to surprise.
