In anticipation of his debut full-length on Astro Nautico in 2017, we are thrilled to announce a series of releases this fall introducing the artist che.
che (Che Ramirez) has lived long periods of his life in Ireland, the Bay Area, and Philadelphia, his current home. A lifelong multi-instrumentalist with roots in a musical Guatemalan family, he combines experimental tape manipulations and sound synthesis techniques with chordal and rhythmic inventions informed by a heritage of jazz, classical, and latin musics. The result is lush and layered, urbane and unpredictable.
che’s Astrocast, like his original music, is a colorful, organic assemblage of radical soundworlds: This mix is like a journey that weaves in and out of my influences, childhood, and into the present where my compositions and experimentation take place.”
