Alejandro Bernal is a composer, sound designer and Latinx multi instrumentalist that has drifted through styles and oscillated between textures. He is also the founder of several important projects in his native Colombia. In recent times, he has toured the world with his music and developed a dialogue between the accessible, the dance floor, experimental, and extensions both between and beyond them.
His solo debut, ‘Detrás de la montaña’, reflects his more abstract side. Its sound encompasses both the ethereal and concrete through subtle detail. Abstract music in its full expression, like an aural and geographic navigation through silver lineages; the metaphor of the natural form and the concise exploration of mental rhythms: this album explores profound sonorities and psychoacoustic oceans, giving birth to amplified forms that blur horizons.
This is Alejandro Bernal's international debut for OTONO and was composed in his home of Medellín. It includes a track recorded in Mexico in collaboration with German producer Raz Ohara which adds a dash of substantial dynamism, taking the listener to some of the most advanced terrains of the avant garde with hints of noise, dark ambient and IDM sequences that defy the conventions of electronic music and its contemporary seas.

Detrás de la montaña hay más montañas
Ondas para una escucha honda
Luz de la hondonada
Frecuencias que resuenan bajo los pies
Sonidos que trajo el azar
