Bio

GAF, the band, began in 1999 in the island of Tenerife as a personal project of Kurajica Mladen, member of other bands such as Tupperwear (Klitekture Records), Emeth-HNM, (Drone) and Afg-an (Antenna Records), member co-founder of Colectivo Drone, a cultural association dedicated to the spreading of experimental music and multimedia arts over the last eight years in Canary Islands, and co-organizer of CROMA and Próximos en Santa Cruz, two international cutting-edge music festivals both held in Tenerife.

What began as a solo studio project it turned nevertheless into a trio along the last years but occasionally experimenting with other formats like quartet, quintet and even sextet. In 2007 GAF has worked mainly as quartet, joining with Kurajica other active members from Canarian experimental scene Felipe González, César Chinarro and the French saxophonist Olivier Dubois. GAF has even had a chance to collaborate with the Chicago artist and cornet player Rob Mazurek (Chicago Underground, Exploding Star Orchestra, Isotope 217, Mandarin Movie, Sao Paulo Underground and so on) for the recordings of their debut album for the Gran Canarian label Ruin Records.

In basic lines GAF could be defined as a cross-over music which aims to trascend all genres and styles of contemporary music, and, thus, experiment with all possibilities of textures, acoustic sounds, composition structures and ambiences. From John Cage to the Gamelan music and Steve Reich, from minimalistic electronics to the no-wave and art-rock with oriental flavour, from folk and indietronics to free jazz, from ambient and field recordings to the experimental literature and visual poetry, GAF thoroughly moves on the borderlines of the established, seeking style, cultural and philosophic encounters that would give birth to the strange and unpredictable. An internal difference seems to be the main characteristic of GAF's music which makes it never fix on one concept or style but always dynamic, nomad and continuously immerged into sonic explorations linked not only to the technological advances but to the cultural interchange of its musicians. This is one of the reasons GAF never presents a fix format but always changes its horizons by including musicians with different stylistic, cultural and philosophical backgrounds.
