Kiko C. Esseiva (2 Albums, 13 Tracks)
Kiko C. Esseiva is a composer with Swiss and Spanish roots who lived in squats for a big part of his life. He creates electroacoustic sound pieces that are warm, non-academic and colorful, spreading a humanity and richness which is far away from the sterility of a lot of todays electronic compositions. He creates very diversified atmospheres which combine acoustic instruments, noise, human voices, field recordings and static sheets of sound with a stunning freshness and musicality.
According to the title of his first album Musiques pour haut-parleurs (music for loudspeakers) his live shows are adventurous installations of amps in different sizes and qualities, that are all separately controlled by Esseiva at the mixing desk, making his compositions even more transparent, vital and expanded.
