Mico Rex is a Mexican experimental electro-pop duo formed in 2010 by Ernesto Romero and Jorge Ramirez, pioneers of live programming in México. After performing in cheesy and gritty joints, they reached international festivals in México and went all the way to a successful European tour across Zürich, Nantes, Barcelona, and closing the 2012 SuperCollider Symposium in London also releasing out their first E.P “Rico Mex” on the ChordPunch label.
And now, after a pre-heat streaming concert to Birmingham’s Network Music Festival they are back in Europe for the live.code.festival as part of their Algorave tour!!
It is a meal of unjustifiably harsh electronics, seasoned with catchy, melodic, schizophrenic and danceable ingredients. Exploring styles including bolero, 8bit, glitch, old school electro, old romantic, punk, geek, breakz, fresh, vocal, finura and the future, they will take care of you (if you let them) with smooth waves of deep wild-eyed braids. With a mix of deterministic algorithms and joystick-in-card-board controlled expressiveness, concatenated within a master two-synched-laptop-brain, Mico Rex play with the precise and the indeterminate.
