About me

Mi name is Jordi Baldó aka VesperOn, I'm a graphic designer and sound artist based in Lleida, focused on the field of analog sound synthesis in low resolution, using the sound chip of the 80's videogame systems, especially Nintendo GameBoy (DMG-01). At present, I work and investigate two different lines, a more musical first (with techno and electro influences), in which I collaborate with the Barcelona's netlabel Lowtoy, and a second one that is the sound of the audiovisual performance Hattlerizer 2.0, a liveset based on the projection and real-time creation of a purely synthetic, geometric and abstract animation piece by Max Hattler.

Fest Anca/liveset

Hattlerizer 3.0 at Fest Anča 2018 (Zilina, SK).
"It may seem that time is not an important topic in Max Hattler's work, for space in his work is being manipulated and carefully deconstructed. However, performing with Spanish musician Jordi Baldó, aka VesperOn (Sounds via Nintendo Game Boy), he gave one of the most stress-free and simultaneously complex festival events, where the concrete passing of time is simply not taken into account". (Vassilis Kroustallis, Zippy Frames).

Hattlerizer/VesperOn at AND Festival 2012 (Manchester, UK).
“Hattlerise/VesperOn thrust you into a tunnel of euphoric visual sonicism. Max Hattler’s immersive visuals act as a magnetic anchor of the audience’s gaze, they’re hypnotic, immersive and arresting. Once locked into the central core of the visual the viewer is then propelled into a heady audio abyss via a wave of analogue noise by VesperOn whose reworked Game Boy synthesisers shoot abrupt beats that culminate into a reimagined sense of techno musicality.

"It’s an intense ride that leaves the audience buzzing and yearning for more!”. (Christina Millare, Programme Co-ordinator, Cornerhouse / AND Festival)

Animac/liveset

Hattlerizer/VesperOn at Animac 2012 (Lleida, ES).
“Al igual que otros años, Animac siguió conectando la animación más experimental con la música de vanguardia. Esto se sintetizó a la perfección en la agresiva performance que ofrecieron Max Hattler, el animador alemán residente en Londres, y el leridano VesperOn, basada en una fusión de ritmos 8 bits con estética protoinfográfica”.

"Cyberpunk show a dystopian futuristic setting that tends to focus on a combination of Low-life and High-tech, featuring advanced technological and scientific achievements". Now it's time to write our future, to think in people, to think in feelings... it's time to Low-tech and High-life.
