David Jornet (born 1971) is an artist from Barcelona (Spain) who started his musical career in the middle of the 80s. His passion for electronics has brought him to play in a wide range of bands like Frame, Klockwork, Asphalt!, Tannhauser, Anorak, The Suicide Of Western Culture (this two last at the present time), until he decided to found his personal solo project six years ago. Strange2 is a compilation of the musical snippets that made David’s memory up; his view and particular summary of the music he has been listening to for years and has deeply touched his most intimate feelings –from Tangerine Dream, Kraftwerk or Vangelis to technopop and the most experimental electronica-, updated to our time but keeping an obvious vintage taste. Strange2 wants to show an universal world of sounds in which are mixed the creative intensity of the IDM and the ambient-electronica music with complex atmospheres and cyclical piano sequences that give to this project a particular feeling of dark soundtrack. This is a feature that David tries to show in his flexible and intense live sets –sometimes just pure electronica sounds (with some industrial touch), some others sounding much more acoustic (drummer playing live)- surrounded by an atmosphere and progressive tempo that easily catches the audience. Strange2 produces an old-to-present-times images evoking music of subjective situations and circumstances, of blue hypnotic melodies that melt into worrying even unpleasant landscapes. more .........
