alteraOrbe - Artists

Mindglide is the electronic musical project behind Rafael De Julián, an independent artist born in Valencia, Spain, with a deep influence from  electronic music, progressive rock and jazz. He started studying and creating music in the early 90’s attracted by synthesis and sequencing as a way of composing and developing his ideas with the main objective of evoking rich and deep feelings onto listeners.

Mindglide's music is aimed to transmit evocative atmospheres and portraits of a free form universe, allowing the listener to expand his mind and  his  imagination beyond musical boundaries. According to this, his music is presented full of dense timbrical structures, rich soundworlds and progressive composition schemes.

His main tools include analogue and digital synthesizers and sequencers, software synths and his recently adquired eurorack modular system. Here, his preferences go towards FM synthesis and wavetables with synths like the Yamaha SY99 and the Korg Wavestation to mention some. While his music shows evident influences by ambient pioneers like Brian Eno and Steve Roach, krautrock and the Berlin school are also present in his compositions thru artists such as Tangerine Dream or Klaus Schulze, as well as several bands going from symphonic rock to jazz styles.
