Born in Juchitán de Zaragoza, Oaxaca.
Ollin Vázquez is a composer, multi-instrumentalist and music producer focused on the creation of experimental music, vocal music and the technologies associated with sound. After a long career in the fields of contemporary music and experimental music, Ollin is looking to broaden his horizons by approaching music genres such as hip-hop, trip hop and art-pop.
He is currently finishing his master's degree in music technology at the National Autonomous University of Mexico (UNAM) and his music has been presented at various festivals such as the Aires festival, the Sound + festival, Transversal Festival, the Oaxaca International Book Fair. In the same way, his music has sounded in various musical venues such as the Juan José Arreola Lake House, the Fonoteca Nacional de México and the Alicia Cultural Multiforum, among others.
Ollin Vázquez is currently working on his second full-length album titled FA(U)CES, which can be classified as a mix between experimental hip-hop, lo-fi and vocal music. In it, the composer explores the possibilities of voice processing as a tool to connect with the voices of ancestors and with the voices that remain hidden in memory.
"The sound expresses itself, the listener's job is to distinguish these dissonances that, in a plausible way, generate a discourse, a sound micro-universe designed from the process of converting noise into music"
"The prevailing sound in his compositions could be ascribed to what we call experimental. There is something lo-fi, ambient and a vocal presence that complements the sounds"
