Vigliensoni is a Montréal-based musician and producer from Valparaiso, Chile. His work is informed by formal musical training and extensive studies in the design of new musical interfaces and music recommendation algorithms. He recently completed a PhD in music technology at McGill University. In his work, Vigliensoni transforms the process of making a record into a playground for learning and experimentation. Vigliensoni was a founding member of the seminal post-punk band Lucybell and the electro-acoustic band Los Mismos, among many other collaborations. His solo career Vigliensoni began with the release Nata, where he experimented with techno and breakbeat. He has also explored vocal-driven songs about animal polygamy and migratory birds Le Règne Animal, that eschew the standard pop format, and overlapped krautrock and electronica references with Jaguar.
Shimmering, circular synth lines; a series of intuitive and ever-evolving Latin-ized drum machine investigations.

Lucybell is widely hailed as one of the most important Chilean rock bands of the 1990s. Thankfully, there’s a forthcoming documentary that revisits the group’s legacy.
