Artist performance: Juan Hansen
Juan Hansen is a composer and recording artist from Buenos Aires who expresses himself through Live Sets. His search is real, and certainly visceral; a search for the different, mixing genres without prejudice, with a seriously playful attitude, and the profound intention of transforming a set into an experience that crosses climates through image and sound. His live set flows through Ableton Live, to which are added guitars, vocals and synthesizers performed live. Throughout loopers everything becomes a unique musical journey. Juan Hansen studied academic music in the Conservatorio Juan José Castro, and contemporary music in EMC (Escuela de Música Contemporánea) in Buenos Aires.
Juan has shared stage with djs like Dixon, Hernán Cattáneo, Patrice Bäumel, Adriatique, and live artists as Paul Kalkbrenner, Jan Blomqvist, Johannes Brecht and Giorgia Angiuli. Having already gone through various music festivals and clubs such as Mutek, Crobar, The Bow, Niceto, Macarena Club & La Terraza (Barcelona), and artistic events at Malba Museum, Centro Cultural Recoleta and Ruth Benzacar Art Gallery. Juan Hansen is positioned within a new group of musicians dedicated to improvise on stage fusing the world of electronic sounds with analog instruments and organic soundscapes.
Currently Juan is playing with a new side-project band called FORMA, with a first EP coming out in Edu Imbernon’s Fayer label.
