"Educazione anaffettiva" is the second album by ranter's bay and Pablo Orza and it was entirely improvised.
It develops as an anaffective dialogue between the analog instruments and the electronics.
The intention was to play a slow, introspective music in contrast with the velocity of today's life.
Pablo Orza is a visual artist and self-taught multi-instrumentalist from Galicia, Spain, mainly interested in free improvisation. In 2003 he has collaborated with Parto Duo to create the Centro de Novas Tecnoloxías do Pico Sacro (TPS), an artist collective interested in real time creation. Between 2006 and 2010 the TPS programmed regular events focusing on free improvisation: the Sesións Vibracionais do TPS in collaboration with the NASA venue (Santiago de Compostela). The improvisers from Spain & Europe that took part in this work eventually founded the Orquestra de Música Espontánea de Galicia (OMEGa) in 2007 and the TPS Vibrational Festival in 2009 and 2011.
Pablo has attended several workshops (Eddie Prevost, Seijiro Murayama, Wade Matthews…) and played with many other improvisers in different projects. In 2012 he started to collaborate with 23RedAnts which is, nowadays, his most stable project besides his solo performances. He uses voice, objects & prepared electric guitar to explore an abstract approach into sound production (electroacoustic, drone, minimalism, noise…) through the unpredictable flux of dynamics and events that is free improvisation music.
