Whether he is finessing high-profile projects in the studio, or whipping a crowd into a frenzy, Gaudi places all importance on sonic perfection, providing the best aural experience for his fans. He has done so for his entire career, which has seen the release of 18 solo albums, about 300 productions and remixes, plus a number of movie soundtracks. A consummate musician and live performer, in his shows he plays theremin, minimoog, vocoder, tape echoes, percussion, multi-effects, stylophone and dub sirens, mixing his live dub vocals through analogue equipment to maximum effect.
Honouring the traditions of old school dub, on stage he always leaves space for his music improvisation, resulting then with each of his performance been unique and unpredictable.
