Biography

Rafael Flores is from Andujar (Spain), and has recorded a number of albums since 1981, under his own name and also as Comando Bruno. Many collaboration works followed with like-minded musicians (Francisco Lpez, Zan Hoffman, Avant Dernires Penses, Seiei Jack Nakahara and Thomas Park, to name a few). His music was released all over the world by such labels as Discos Esplendor Geomtrico, Korm Plastics, Zero Cabal, Graf Haufen Tapes, BogArt, Tonspur Tapes etc. His whole work is milestone of experimental music and sound exploration, he produces audio/videoworks in a very much personal way too hard to define. Rafael Flores build a solid personal universe with an intelligent use of natural recordings and the methods of musique concrte, collages and plenty of other vanguard approaches, mixed with a particular sense of humour next to spirit of dada and surrealism. One of the most active sound artists in the 80’s industrial music scene (international cassette network, experimental video, radio and mail art), he influenced new generations of experimental sound artists. His most notorious feature is the intimate poetical touch in the soundworks, quite unusual for the industrial music scene. From 1991 to 2001, Rafael Flores reduced musical activity, and was involved with videoart, releasing just a very limited soundworks as “friends only” private editions. After a long pause, he returns to editorial activity in 2002.
