Gonzalo Urtizberea a.k.a. Gurtz. Buenos Aires, Argentina. He approached electonic and digital music towards the end of the 90s through the use of different software of production, edition, and audio sequencing on PC. During his residence in Córdoba (1999 – 2003) he studied Musical Composition at the U.N.C and explored different genres from ambient to minimal, via idm, downtempo, and electroacoustic music. He performs live in various events, and is gradually bringing his sound to the dance floor and to modern electronic music. In 2004 he moved to Buenos Aires and entered the National University of Quilmes to study Electroacoustic Composition.
His current direction is combining micro sounds of glitch and the textures of experimental music with the minimalist techno of the dancefloor.
His work has been released by labels like Telegraph, Alphahouse, Clevermusic, Calima and others.
His live performances are base on the concept of laptop music by means of patches for max/msp or ableton live controlled with external MIDI devices and as a DJ he has performed for the most select dancefloors of world minimal and experimental techno.
