Gabriel Guerrero is an Italian producer of electronic music.
Born in Belluno in 1973. By the age of 7 he began to listen with interest and pleasure discs and cassette tapes of his older brother Stephen at the time of broadcast in a small local radio station (Radio Belluno Young - year 1980). The 15 year old brother Stephen, with a great passion for radio, he began to buy and play the pop records of the time and record their own radio programs on cassette and then play back your recordings at home, and the child comes in contact with Gabriel's music groups as Yazoo, Falco, Genesis, Alan Parsons Project, Off, Depeche Mode, Righiera, Duran Duran and many other manufacturers dance pop era (1980-1986). Gabriel falls in love right from the start of synthesizers and electronic sounds from the chest in a straight 4 / 4 that begins to emerge more clearly in some products than others (Off - Electrica Salsa).
In 1989 at the age of 16 she began attending the Sunday afternoon with friends, local clubs and remains fascinated by the figure of Disco and DJ. At that time he discovered the first house music, you could hear the small and narrow but they rarely actually Belluno. Pieces like Frankie Knuckles Your Love, Amnesia - Ibiza, Inner City - Good Life marked, even commercially, the beginning of a new era for dance music. He was born and was spreading the Music House (1988-1989). The passion and the pleasure in certain combinations and hypnotic sound more refined and technical curiosity of how these songs were produced in 1990 gives birth to Gabriel's interest in music production. Between 1989 and 1991 the explosion of the new phenomenon of music Techno House and then attracts the attention and interest of the young Gabriel, in his spare time, while continuing their schooling at a profit, specializing in computer and programming languages. In 1992 he joined the faculty of Computer Engineering at the University of Trento and after a year he moved to the University of Padua. It then looks for the approach to music production with science and the tool that best knows: the computer and the computer. In 1992 a friend, also a computer enthusiast, gave him a sound card Sound Blaster 8-bit, and began studying this instrument and how to use it through a software program. He then began to experiment with one of the first MS-DOS computer with a sequencer: the Voyetra sequencer. The result are pieces with synthetic electronic sounds raw and poorly defined 8-bit, then recorded on magnetic tape. The technical and artistic maturation occurs during the period 1993-1997 which represents the most intense phase in the musical journey of Gabriel Guerrero. In this period he built a small home recording studio, purchase and use various synthesizers and drum machines, and hardware of various types, all using the protocol and interface with your PC midi. Use the program at this time Cakewalk Studio. In this intense period of art produces very interesting and unusual material sperimental ranging from from house to techno to trip-hop chill out.
He also performs live in some live shows, with its set-up made of synth sound, effects and drum machines, collecting the consent of the public.
On an artistic level, however, fails to make the qualitative leap in the world of music and to enter the professional sphere, this due to several factors, including the narrow provincial reality where he lives with his family, and the resulting lack of meaningful contact and opportunities in music, in particular in the field of electronic music. In the meantime continues his studies in computer science at the University, however, devoting much energy and passion and listening to electronic music production. In 1998 he finally realizes that the field of professional music is a goal too far away and difficult to reach for a Belluno, and the economic situation of a student, and decides to sell all the equipment built negl'anni previous study and devote himself to a more traditional career path. He began working as a software programmer in the company of a friend. But the passion for house music will leave not ever. In 1999 he discovers the great pleasure of Propellerhead Rebirth revolutionary software program. A true revolution. This software provides a virtual environment in the 3 cornerstones of House and Techno music: Roland 808 & 909 + Roland 303 bassline, reviving the power of these expensive machines in a simple interface on the PC. The sound was great and also how to prepare these tracks reflect the philosophy of work that Gabriel used with synths and drum machines in a few years before his own recording studio. He then began experimenting in 1999 with just the PC in their room, using Rebirth, and produces a dozen tracks of good quality techno. Rebirth The new software can easily produce WAV tracks. In 2000 the Swedish software company produces an evolution of Propellerhead Rebirth, a much more complete production environment: Reason. Gabriel readily buy the new software and start the path of study and production of Reason, a program that to this day. In 2001, Gabriel began to seek a way to use their own digital productions and performance in them public through the use of a notebook, trying to bring a live set and innovative alternative compared to traditional vinyl and CD. He discovered at that time the German software company Native Instruments, which offers a revolutionary program for mixing wav and mp3 tracks: Traktor 1.0. Buy the new software in 2002 and began studying it trying to figure out how to check the program to produce a new live show by playing his own productions. Buy the first midi controller from the German company Doepfer, and then switch to a sophisticated digital mixer Tascam. In April 2002 he was invited to play in a big event in Padua, and offers a live performance, using a laptop and some controllers. Gets in that event a great success. That same year father and marries, continuing his professional career as a software consultant in Belluno.
