Mateo
Hurtado

Mateo Hurtado creates techno and experimental music with an intuitive and analogue character. Deeply inspired by the surrealist movement, obscure symbolism and ritualistic incantations, his music seeks to invoke hidden, impossible images and bring to light the indecipherable messages buried in the unconscious. A search for the lost soul amidst an oppressive world.

His approach to electronic music seeks to overcome conventional boundaries and handle the musical material akin to the ideas of surrealism. This concept manifests itself through an array of analog, digital, modular and conventional electronic instruments. Mateo has been focusing on live performances, in which shifting polyrhythmic material is fused with otherworldy, strange melodies, ritualistic drumwork and dronelike, shimmering athmospheric soundscapes.
