Maker Bio:

Laureano Cantarutti a.k.a. Law Cant is a composer, author, performer, multi-instrumentalist and music producer from Córdoba, Argentina. Since 1994 I’m in continuous education and research. I had knowledge of music theory, musical grammar, harmony, classical guitar playing with extended technique, Middle Eastern percussion, Throat Singing (harmonic singing), audio recording, musical composition and creation of lyrics, learned in differents institutions, such as: National University of Córdoba, cultural centers, conservatories and self-taught.

My solo project stands out for the mixture of conventional instruments and those created by me using the Circuit Bending technique.

In 2020 I compiled and curated the first “Latin American Sound Map of Circuit Bending”, and audiovisual work that includes the participation of 32 artists from 11 countries of Latin America and 1 special guest from Canary Islands. It also includes research works about Circuit Bending for free download, special mentions and the participation of Reed Ghazala who had the opportunity to access to all the material before the publication; also he shared a message to all the artists.

Project Name: Law Cant

Project Introduction:

My solo project it’s a mixure of Circuit Bending devices, classical guitar playing with extended technique, Middle Eastern percussion, Throat Singing (harmonic singing), lo fi, ambient and electronics sounds.

This project is the result of the continuos sound research and about making and using Circuit Bending devices as instruments in conjunction to the other conventional instruments that I use. I believe that this is one way to reuse and resignify that objects that are victims of the program obsolescense in a creative way and can help more people to do it.

I often share the creation process via social media and them I uses the devices in my compositions and performances that I recorder on audio and video format.

Special Thanks
