El sueño de Hyparco (1988-1998) is embebed in the dark electronic
aesthetic mouvement, so called isolationism. Antonio Dyaz, using
the nickname Klaus Böhlmann, was the creator of the band, in 1988,
working since then with musiciens like D'Onork Eimert, Manuel García,
Julián Aragoneses, Doctor Héctor, Dieter Klanze, Fátima Miranda,
Suso Saiz or Luis Delgado. One decade later, Hyparco will sleep
El sueño de Hyparco has made performances in places like Madrid
(Centro Reina Sofía, Círculo de Bellas Artes, Teatro Pradillo, SGAE,
Espacio "P"), Barcelona (SONAR '94), Vigo (Galería Zen& Cia), Santander
(Fundación Caja Cantabria), Sevilla (Universidad Politécnica)...
In 1993 performs in New York, in a special night focused on instrumental
music, during the New Music Seminar.
Antonio Dyaz (Madrid, 1968) is an artist that comes from so different
fields such as Biology or Computer Technology, but who has a strong
vocation for Literature. He has won several Narrative awards (Miguel
Hernandez, Sonata...) and he has published a volume of poetic prose
titled "La clepsidra" (Ed. Libertarias, 1994). He is also
an active contributor to many publications such as Diario El Mundo,
Diario 16 or Generacion XXI, where he writes reviews on cinema,
articles about journeys, the future, ...etc and opinion essays.
He has published, together with Julian Aragoneses, the essay "Arte,
Placer y Tecnología", within the collection Ars Futura (Ed.
Anaya Multimedia), with a lofty musical, aesthetic and literary
content. He has written two novels, "Fabius Dormido",
a cyberpunk fantasy about genetic pornography that got to be the
finalist in Francisco Umbral Awards (1997), and that was the first
novel in Spanish published with commercial purposes in Internet
(Manuscritos.com, 2000), and "En Funchal Perdí Mi Nombre",
a psycho-thriller set in Madeira.
Dyaz, under the name of Klaus Böhlmann, founded El Sueño de Hyparco.
His records and multimedia shows have always been praised by the
critics, who stand out the ambient, dark and high.technological
character of his works. His most famous works are "Ambientes Hormonales",
"If" and "The Gallery", but other works, such as "Música
para Bosques Encantados" or "Pirates" had the approval of the critics
as well. "The Gallery", his last work (whose production's process
costed him more than four years) is impossible to be understood
outside the Internet context. It builds fifteen musical words from
fifteen works of Painting Art. The album has several de luxe contributors:
Suso Saiz, Javier Paxariño, Klaus Böhlmann, Iury Lech or Luis Delgado.
Antonio Dyaz was also the manager, from 1990 to 1995, of the independent
record company Hyades Arts, a pioneer in Spain in the publication
of electronic music and new tendencies.
Besides, he is the author of the controversial science-fictional
book of poems "Sexo Cero en Gravedad Cero" and of "Mundo
Artificial" (Temas de Hoy, 1998), a volume of radical phylosophy
about new technologies (Genetics, Internet, Clonation).
He has written and co-directed the short "Labios", where he recreates,
with the collaboration of Julián Hernández, Ray Loriga,
Juan Manuel de Prada, Lucía Etxebarria, Jesús Palacios,
Marcos Giralt, Pedro Maestre and other writers of the new generation,
a story about virtual reality and Japanese corporations.
He has just finished the novel "Unicornio", where he talks
about the end of the death through technology and religions. Nowadays,
he is getting ready the film "Off", whose shooting, in 2001, will
take him to a dozen of countries.
