Rafael Anton Irisarri is an American composer, multi-instrumentalist, electronic music producer, interdisciplinary artist and curator. Predominantly associated with ambient, drone, post-minimalist, and modern classical music, Irisarri recorded output captures an essential vision of floating tones, deep pulsing bass and textural electronics. His use of ostinato phrases taps into minimalist ideals while atmospheric layers of effects suggests a more cinematic quality in his productions. In all, Irisarri compositions are deeply emotive and epic to the point of being symphonic.

"Irisarri uses his guitar as a strings-like symphonic element to generate atmospheric masses‚ like an ambient symphony recording that been rescued from attic entombment after half a century." Textura (CA)

RAFAEL ANTON IRISARRI is available for fly-ins, festivals and other proposals.
Ready to perform solo or together w/LEANDRO FRESCO (South American requests are more than welcome!)
