Dear all,

I’m booking some dates for RAFAEL TORAL end of May early June 2012.

Please find here a biography and also some links:

Rafael Toral plays experimental electronic instruments. Strongly
interested in phrasing, he calls his style « post-free jazz electronic
music », once described as « a brand of electronic music far more visceral
and emotive than that of his cerebral peers ». Toral’s Space Program, while
researching performance possibilities, delivers music that is full of
clarity, articulating silence and sound in a thoughtful, yet physical way.

Formerly known for his drone/ ambient work with guitar and electronics and
acclaimed records such as Wave Field (1994) or Violence of Discovery and
Calm of Acceptance (2000), he has radically renewed his approach to music,
launching the jazz-inspired and alien-sounding Space Program in 2004.

Toral’s long time connection with Sei Miguel is central to the development
of the Space Program. Other collaborations include Jim O’Rourke, Evan
Parker, John Edwards, Joe Morris, Tatsuya Nakatani, Manuel Mota, Roger
Turner, David Toop, Alvin Lucier, John Zorn, Phill Niblock, Christian
Marclay, Sonic Youth, João Paulo Feliciano, Rhys Chatham, Lee Ranaldo, C
Spencer Yeh, Trevor Tremaine, Dean Roberts… In 1998 he became a member
of MIMEO electronic orchestra. Its other members are Keith Rowe, Thomas
Lehn, Kaffe Matthews, Marcus Schmickler, Jérome Noetinger, Christian
Fennesz, Peter Rehberg, Gert-Jan Prins, Cor Fuhler and Phil Durrant. Since
2008 he directs the Space Collective, a slowly developing orchestral

Also active in visual and spatial arts, Toral has produced video and
several installations from 1994 to 2003.

Rafael Toral has performed throughout Europe, Canada, USA, South Korea,
Japan, New Zealand and Australia.

I hope to hear from you soon.
