Born and bred in San Sebastian, and holding a degree in philosophy and masters in science, technology and communication, Casares had a long trajectory in poetry and illustration before turning to synths and sound. Since then, he has tried to learn about the complex world of sound using a media that suits him better to express himself, bringing him closer to creative worlds that he couldn’t reach otherwise.
The artist shares his most immediate challenge to achieve sounds and sound environments so that people can listen to them and use them as a medium for their mind to expand. Nature and its poetic veils seem to be a regular inspiration in Casare’s productions, probably an influence of the Vasque Country’s dramatically beautiful scenery.
The sound and music orbit in the ambient realms, creating dark musical landscapes and abstract industrial atmospheres, which some have defined in a magic suspension dream, where Casares finds his way.
Above all, what I like to achieve is music that accompanies people when they do something at home, in the office, anywhere. A friend of mine told me that my compositions were like soundtracks for movies that don’t exist. I know some tracks are a little strange enough, but I hope they can be listened by someone one morning at work. Like when you’re in the countryside and you hear birds singing or when you cook at home with the window open and you hear the noises of the city… So the same thing. I’d settle for someone to listen to it with no more ambition than that.
