Artist Biographies:

"David Area enters the Spanish underground scene in 2010 with the creation of the portal "Fungus Cerebri", which almost immediately becomes the information referent of the national noise-industrial movement. Following the success of that work creates Mattoid Records, label focused entirely on the most abrupt sides of noise genre.As a musician, he starts with small projects following the noisy line being Catatonic State the most relevant of this slope, in which combines the essence of the Harsh Noise Wall with live performance. In 2014, he began to enter the scene of free improvisation in Madrid and began to forge projects such as Hashigakari (with Tomás Gris, reductionist improvisation) or Nebelmeer (with Marta Sainz, atmospheric and dark electronics).

Since then, he faces his musical activity entirely as an improviser without seeking any stylistic result, covering aesthetics that flow from reductionism to drone environments using various types of electronic elements (sinusoidal waves, noise synthesizers, software ...). He is part of other projects like Nanimo, Opera Im Keller or La Nueva Iglesia.During these years, he has shared stage with artists as diverse as Alfredo Costa Monteiro, Johnny Chang, If Bwana, Antoine Beuger, Rally! (Javier Piñango & Edu Comelles), Pelayo Arrizabalaga, Persona or Guillermo Torres in spaces such as Cruce, Naranjo, Antic Forn de Vallcarca, La Central del Reina Sofía, Medialab Prado, Teatro la Puerta Estrecha or the Creative Fest in Portugal. He is a member of the maDam improvisation group and the Grupo de Resistencia Sonora de Madrid. Coordinates the label Ex-Nihilo with Tomás Gris.nto a Tomás Gris el sello Ex-Nihilo."
