Wilder Gonzales Agreda (native from Los Olivos, North Lima, Peru) begun his music career in 1995 with his first band Avalonia (with Fernando Ponce, Fabián Escalante and Óscar Pita) and, after the brokenhearted split of this early avatar, with Fractal (alongside Wilmer Ruiz and Hugo Medina). Both groups were part of the new peruvian avantgarde history born with the post-rocker and ethereal scene known as Crisálida Sónica.
In 2003 Gonzales Agreda started the independent neo-psychedelic label Superspace Records and since the 00's has taken part on projects like El Conejo de Gaia, Azucena Kántrix (with Christian Galarreta), The Electric Butterflies (with Roger W. Terrones), The Peruvian Red Rockets (with Luis Durand), Martelenor (with Juan Roldán and Hugo Medina) amongst others.
He has been pursuing a musical ethos that makes him one of the most interesting sound artists from Peru today. Gonzales Agreda has released more than 60 discs by now, on his own label and on other ones across the world like Clinical Archives (Russia), Ruidemos (Spain), TibProd (Poland), Limitada (Argentina), Tape Safe (Belgium), Aloardí (Peru), etc. His music work has received outstanding reviews by such cool magazines like The Wire (U.K.), Rock de Lux (Spain), Decoder (U.S.A.), Vital Weekly (Netherlands), Go-Mag (Spain), Loop.cl (Chile), Losing Today (Italy), etc.
In 2014 he put out the album "Lima Norte Metamúsica" (Superspace Records, 2014) with the artwork done by the inimitable neo-psychedelic painter Anthony Ausgang that has received great critics from the press and begun 2015 with the release of a free download computer music single entitled "Música Anticorrupción". 2016 saw the release of "Scala Mega Hertz" and "Polykroma EP". Recently he has put a new album entitled "Paraísos, Revoluciones y Tú" (2017).

Crafting a concept album is an incredibly difficult task. Tying together a cohesive narrative across a record’s worth of songs isn’t just daunting, it’s an endeavour that even some of the industry’s finest have failed to do memorably. This task, however, becomes notably more difficult when you’re dealing in the abstract via instrumental soundscapes. That is what Chronotope Project, the moniker of composer Jeffrey Ericson Allen, attempts to do with his latest project, ‘Ovum.’
NAAL is an eclectic music project led by Chicago composer Dave Mantel. This talented musician has a true passion for great melodies and haunting musical textures. His blend of ambient, shoegaze and experimental drone music feels personal and unique, echoing the work of artists such as Slowdive, Boards of Canada or Sigur Ros, just to mention a few.
