Vortex Count is a non-music electronic project from Bilbao [SP] that focuses on an abstract concept where cyclical beat patterns interact. Hypnotic pulsating lines / textures, noises and bleeps, are a fundamental part of the arrangement.
Slowly evolving structures have an important role with very little movement or sometimes even a static sense of pulse, although elements used are always in continuous motion, managed by frequencies in different ways to represent a microscopic perception of sound.
Rhythmically, beat patterns are created using a discrete range of tones and noises, generated by different tools and reconstructed to create a sense that drives tracks close to a mechanical system moved by different particles rotating around an axis line. This is reflected in the project’s name, where “vortex” is a laboratory tool used to accelerate and homogenize reaction particles through the number of velocity cycles / oscillations represented by the word “count”.
Apart from releasing on labels such as Detroit Underground DU ™, Kaer’Uiks, and Labrynth, among others, he also releases on Augsmatic Diaspore ™, his own label created for expanding avant electronic works from diverse composers around the world.
In addition to working as a solo artist, he is involved in other projects such as Add Obscurae, Aural Research, V:room and many unknown akas, which are mainly a mixture of techno, IDM, minimalism, industrial and ambient sounds.
