The second solo album by distinguished musician Silvio Paredes is, as the title suggest a mix of electronica and pop. The seven tracks was developed as instrumental songs and feature musical motives and phrases that has the music emerge, develop, flourish and recede.
On a foundation of machine-and-synth rhythms with the slap of a funky, electric bass, the percussive strings of the Chapman Stick and seductive melodies invite us to take some imaginary travels and do some real and solid dancing. In these seven soundtracks for an imaginary film, the highly organic music fuses the digital with the analogue and the electronic with the electrical in a compelling display of funk, rock and hip-hop of the very danceable and most appealing kind: a deliciously meaty robot!
Silvio Paredes studied fine arts in the 80es and was an integral part of the concept art movement in his native Chile. His musical trajectory has to a large degree been shaped by his desire to transfer aspects of this art-form into his musical work, his bands and his releases.
Self-taught, Silvio is a reference point on electric bass and the Chapman Stick not only in his home country, but in all of Latin America. In particular the Stick has been his main instrument since he started playing and he combines it with an array of electronic devices.
Boasting an extensive trajectory, Silvio has been a seminal part of several of the Chilean music scene’s mainstays. His trio Los Mismos was the first electronic group that would mix electronics with electrical instruments in a playing style similar to that of a rock band, and Silvio is co-founder and core member of the still active cult band Electrodomesticos that blends industrial rock with electronica. His fusion of elements from jazz, rock and hip-hop with electronica has been released on four albums, featuring guest performances by outstanding musicians such as DJ Raff, Solo di Medina and DJ Bitman as well as the highly successful indie-pop artist Javiera Mena.
Silvio first released as solo artist was Kau (2010), and now 5 years later followed by the present Poptronics (2015) whose energetic music will accompany Silvio on his re-location to the UK, his next musical endeavour.
