Pablo Hernandez Aracena, a Bayamon native, graduated from the University of Puerto Rico, Rio Piedras Campus, with a Master of Arts degree in History. He began immersing himself in sonorous exploration early in 2017, loosely pursuing it as a hobby that eventually led to broader polyphonic interests involving the defamiliarization of sound by prioritizing machine sensibilities as monitors of the city-dweller's unconscious sensory experience. He has used sonorous cityscapes as experiential vectors in environmental compositions and often draws inspiration from experiences in the city to compose ambient tracks.
