Ralp Studio

Info:

My name is Raül Peix, I live in Barcelona and Ralp is my moniker. I consider myself a technology enthusiast, from retro to modern, I love synthesizers, analog and digital, and I like electronics, glitch, sci-fi, programming, and DIY culture.
In my spare time I make experimental electronic music, produced with hardware and software, I use 8 Bit systems such as the Game Boy and I like to build and modify my own machines. I collect Game Boys and other machines and actually pretty much any device that crosses my path.
I'm currently working as part of a design, motion graphics and sound design studio called Device, and among other projects I'm co-directing an 8 Bit and Circuit Bending Net Label called Lowtoy, and an 8 Bit audiovisual collective called Distortled Box.
