Seattle-based Rafael Anton Irisarri (aka The Sight Below and Orcas with Benoît Pioulard) is a multi-instrumentalist, electronic music producer, interdisciplinary artist and curator (Substrata Festival).

In his deeply emotive drone and ambient music, all elements are carefully composed in an almost classical vein. Floating tones, deep pulsing bass and textural electronics never feel forced, creating a spontaneous atmosphere, at once poetic and melancholic.

Being published by numerous labels around the globe and having collaborated with Biosphere, Fennesz, Lillevan, Pantha Du Prince, Echospace, Lawrence English, Loscil to name but a few, Irisarri’s work has been internationally recognised and acclaimed. In his live outfit, Irisarri uses piano, electric guitar and his laptop to achieve the textural density of his recorded work and favors improvisation. After his appearance at the TodaysArt Session at the Dutch Electronic Art Festival in WORM Rotterdam under his pseudonym The Sight Below in 2012, Irisarri returns for an intimate, deep and intense performance at TodaysArt 2014.
