David Velez is a Colombian composer working with field recordings. His work is centred on ontological and acoustic reflections about inanimate objects, and the ways sound contours our relationships within the social, cultural and political spaces of our lives. He has been active within the sound art world for more than a decade, releasing work widely including in the UK, USA, France and Italy. His last two albums have been featured in the Wire which described his collaboration with Bruno Duplant as 'the sound design David Lynch would create for a dank tropical cave'. Velez is also the founder of the Impulsive Habitat label, and runs the online sound studies portal Sonic Field. This will be his first appearance at Cafe Oto.
