Made with AI 2o24


In a world where brushstrokes mimic silicon whispers, Made with AI dares you to see beyond digital dreams. Every hyperreal line of code composting automated work blurs the boundary between the human hand and the algorithmic soul. Perception is the canvas, and beauty lies in the space between what is seen and believed.

Made with AI (2o24)




Rally 2o24


In a uphill curve, embraced by lush greenery, a building roar breaks the silence. A rally car, speeding beyond limits, bursts into view. The noise crescendos, then fades as the car vanishes.

Calm disrupted by brief chaos, silence returning just as swiftly. Each roar is a momentary blaze of intensity within the enduring stillness, like life's intermittent bursts of excitement amidts routine.

A rhythmic dance of sound and silence, the essence of existence, the constancy of the everyday punctuated by thrilling, unpredictable moments. The poetry of time itself; the serene, the chaotic, the beautiful and the interplay in between.

Cachopou 2o14-24


A random misuse of electronica, noise, off-key post-jazz and sound art. Sonic metamodernist pirouettes recorded during live studio improvisations with guests and machines, sounding like AI music long before AI music is even a thing.

"The idea of expressing emotion using synthetic music is such a basic one but still so few bands do it as well as Cachopou. It is just the right balance of chaos and order. Lovely.” - Isan.

"An unnerving deconstruction of punk-jazz-minimal-glitch music that seems to be infinitely played by a musical AI set free to explore the realm and boundaries of music: rhythms, melodies, sounds." - Antoine Schmitt.



Bio


Juanma LoDo and David Quiles Guilló crossed paths for a second time in September 2o14 in Asturias. Over a delightful local dish, they birthed Cachopou.

By June 2o15, Cachopou entered Drax Studios in Madrid, led by J.M. Rosillo, joined by talents like Bosques de mi mente, Cristian, and Meterla, for their first album, "Creating Standards," released in October 2015.

Their unique recording approach involved free, unbounded improvisations, later stitched into songs, embracing chance and chaos. This ethos persisted through all subsequent albums.

In 2o16, "The Weird World Tour" took Cachopou to Barcelona, São Paulo, San Francisco, and Hasselt, each show unique and sustainable with local bands presenting themselves as Cachopou, and freely reinterpreting the audio works.

"Creating Remixes" followed in June 2o16, featuring reimagined versions of their songs by fellow artists and friends, foreseeing somehow the band’s sound evolution.

After 4 long years of many recording sets, hundreds of improv tracks and collabs, May 2o2o marked the release of their second album, "Tropicalismo Neo", an unexpected set of song celebrating life amid a pandemic.

"Stakes Are High" in August 2o21 showcased a new sound, blending organic electronics, tropic dreams and randomness. A powerful set of songs to undance the fears away.

In April 2o22, an extended selection of Cachopou’s videos created in collaboration with artists were exhibited at Centre Pompidou Paris, as part of “Réseaux Mondes”, later named a top ten exhibition by Artforum.

Recording sessions between October 2o23 and March 2o24 culminated in their final album. April 2o24 saw the release of "Encore Unmastered," a farewell album featuring ten new tracks, a culmination of their mesmerizing journey since 2o15.

Cachopou's legacy lies in pushing musical boundaries, crafting emotive compositions transcending time.

While 2o24 marks their sunset, their music's resonance will endure, birthing a legend.

Tropicalismo neo surfs the unconscious subtropical universe, recreating the naive sound and feel of early improvised rehearsal moments, rejoicing in the involuntary post-adolescent bursts and voluntary asynchronicity. Imperfect songs that randomly unravel into raw slices of chaotic beauty and magic.

“Wild digi jazz. Keeps squirming away from comfort and expectation. Humorous too! How often does music make u laugh out loud? Some hilarious little bleeps and chimes. Energetic and invigorating like only the best records are.” - Sam Machell.
