eidoscognitio is Alejandro Betancourt, an electroacoustic performer from Venezuela. Alejandro was born in Barquisimeto, Lara and started to compose, play and perform live on his early 30΄s. In his work he tends to explore the richness and the always interesting evolving atmospheres of all soundscapes he can get: Field recordings, sound libraries and synthesizer/sampler generated ones.
His work is heavily influenced by ambient music, he rarely uses rhythm loops, although he creates the sense of a beat using a virtual effect plug-in that allows him to loop a certain fragment of his performance. When he DOES use loops, he relies on Spectrasonics΄ Stylus RMX.
He plays only software synthesizers and ROMplers and he does all his editing and mixing "in the box". "Soon I΄ll be moving to hardware when the time is right, I want to experience the mix process on an analog mixing desk." he says.
