Vortex Count is an electronic music 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, Kaer’Uiks, Diffuse Reality among others, he also releases on Polygon Network, his own label created for expanding abstract 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, Vroom and many unknown akas, which are mainly a mixture of techno, IDM, minimalism and ambient sounds.
