Biography

The Alienaqtor project appeared by the middle of 1999, as a study of sounds, effects and artistic abstraction. This happened with very little resources, a sum of wide open influences; and made the first “sound drafts” incorporate ambient sounds, electro, techno, breakbeat, house – but, beyond it all, uncommon effects, noises and a “rough” touch.

From then on a clear and gradual evolution happened: more complex compositions, where styles were mixed with harmony improvement; the use of melodies derived from Ambient Techno – IDM – Glitch Pop (influence of e-music labels such as Astralwerks , Kompakt, Warp, Novamute, Planet-Mu, R&S Records and Internal).

2001 - The demo CD “O Alienador EP” had a pretty positive review published on brazilian mag DJ World (# 3).
2002 - A second demo EP, “Elektruthfuck>>>Understandit”, brought tracks on a more connected way – going for the dancefloors, while keeping an experimental mood. The track “Elecktruthfuck”, a breakbeat & ambient crossover – certainly the better produced one til then – was a standout. Internet started acting as a valuable channel and it ended up generating essential contacts and contributions for the project.

On december 2002 the american independent label Moron Labs (from Austin,Texas) launches the compilation “Look What I Cooked Vol. 1: Meat & Potatoes”, with 11 experimental tracks - of producers from various contries – amongst them is “Elecktruthfuck”.

On February 2003, another track: “Spread The Spell (Melodik ‘Lektro)”, made its way through the second compilation from Moron Labs “Look What I Cooked Vol. 2: Dinner Party”, as well as two other tracks from parallel project Stumblefather – O Pai do Tropeço.
