EL SUEÑO DE HYPARCO (from 1987)
El Sueño de Hyparco is a duo formed in Madrid during the 80's by the iconic musician, writer and filmmaker, Antonio Dyaz (Klau Bohlmann) and Julián Aragoneses. Pioneers of dark electronic in Spain, they released music on Hyades Arts and ROTOR on CD but their first and only vinyl release was Ambientes Hormonales. Heavily influenced by Tangerine Dream and the Berlin School, the piece wasn't conceived as an album but rather a multimedia performance of live electronic instrumentation, slide projections, sculptures and actors. The project emerged as an important one in the history of forward-thinking music in Spain and consequently led El Sueño de Hyparco to play at the 1994 debut of what has now become Barcelona's Sónar Festival.
Starting with the 10 original tracks, they offer a new show in which each concert incorporates new layers of images and sounds from the one before. This very special deconstruction kicked off their tour which began in MIRA Festival 2018 and will soon be gracing the castle walls at ITHAKA Series#01 2019.
El sueño de Hyparco has made performances in places like Madrid (Centro Reina Sofía, Círculo de Bellas Artes, Teatro Pradillo, SGAE, Espacio "P"), Barcelona (SONAR '94), Vigo (Galería Zen& Cia), Santander (Fundación Caja Cantabria), Sevilla (Universidad Politécnica)... In 1993 performs in New York, in a special night focused on instrumental music, during the New Music Seminar.
