Der deutsch-chilenische Techno-Produzent und Live-Musiker Matias Aguuayo war einer der ersten, der auf dem Kölner Label Kompakt verlegt wurde. Damals noch gemeinsam mit seinem Kumpan Dirk Leyers als Duo Closer. Seither ist der gebürtige Kölner solo unterwegs. Sein Sound ist deutlich beeinflusst von den Orten, die er kennengelernt hat und dazu zählen eben auch exotische Plätze wie Buenos Aires, Chile und Peru, die nicht gerade zu den Techno-Hochburgen der Welt gehören. Diese Tatsache macht seine Musik noch reicher. Das hört man an der rauen, recht kämpferisch daherkommenden Soundästhetik, zu der Matias Aguayo stets auch selbst singt. Derzeit ist Aguayo mit einer neuen Support-Band unterwegs, die sich The Desdemonas nennt. Drummer Matteo Scimali, Keyboarder Henning Specht und Gitarrist Gregorio Gomez geben den elektronischen Klängen etwas zutiefst Organisches.


When Matias Aguayo comes into town with a new project, he always brings surprises. From his beginnings with Closer Musik in the late 90's in Cologne and his solo releases on Kompakt and Souljazz, to his legendary street parties in Latin America which were the founding element of the label Cómeme (a place for the most subversive dancefloor sounds from Santiago, via Johannesburg, to Moscow); he has never rested on one genre. From the collaborations with Michael Mayer, Discodeine, Chris Baio (Vampire Weekend) or Battles, to his takes on modern tropicalia on his albums Ay Ay Ay and The Visitor he always chose new ways of work, and always took avenues into unexplored territories.

MatiasAguayo & The Desdemonas is his band, alongside drummer Matteo Scrimali, keyboarder Henning Specht, and guitarist Gregorio Gomez. With this band, Aguayo creates yet unheard moods and colours.

Scrimali gives his deep, uniquely bouncing swing; Specht unravels leftfield spaced-out melodies alongside elegantly distorted bass sounds, and Gomez travels from an airy slide guitar, down to a tight bell-like sounding low bass. Aguayo sings and dances and plays several instruments, mainly and namely “The Mona” which is a custom made kind of a keyboard version of the Bo Diddley guitar.

Matias Aguayo & The Desdemonas is an intense band gig, but also a story that will be told in different formats. These work independently from each other but stand in close relationship: an album, a comic, and extensive touring with refined and expanding performances will about:

- Teenagers who developing superpowers linked to a mysterious encounter by a lake...
- The seemingly inevitable collapse of an estranged world...
- A singer who is followed by his doppelgänger...
- A girl who keeps having visions of a car accident...
- A crooked businessman who is running for mayor...
- And more adventures full of heartbreak, sex, daydreaming, nightmares, music, & peculiar dances.

Everything you’re going to see and hear is unreleased, the audience will be present at the beginning of a story that you can’t experience unless you’re at the gig.

Matias Aguayo & The Desdemonas will be touring Europe and present their cinematographic music full of dark humour and mysterious atmospheres, and their sound - at the same time tropical, psychedelic, exotic and erotic – to the audience.
