Sun Color is the project of Julio César Palacio (Experimental Music Composer, Sound Artist and Architect) founded in 2010.
Born in Venezuela but settled in Barcelona, this artist uses a mixture of analogue sound and digital processing to create abstract, arrhythmic music compositions, exploring oto-acoustics effects and a special use of frequencies, timbres and a dedicated use of sound spatialization.
Moving in the realm of microtonality and reverberation he creates a unique, tenderly orchestrated musical language. Interlarding the mathematical simplicity of sound synthesis with the complex nature of field recordings, he addresses both intellect and emotions. From Microtonality to sustained tones and short-lived consecutive fragments fade in and out of focus in a playful coexistence. Using in his favor the laws of attraction and repulsion and making a structural element out of silence, he creates an organically developing, kaleidoscopic universe.
SUN COLOR has participated in Festivals of international renown like Mutek and realized extensive tours in Europe, USA and Asia, is the Director of the Modular Day Festival (Barcelona), has produced several sound installations and has been invited to Art Residencies as a Guest Composer to the prestigious EMS Electronic Music Studio Of Stockholm in 2015, to the Indigo Foundation in Palermo, Italy in 2017 and to the TEMP-Studio Residency in Lisbon 2018.
