ativandal / Bio

The eerie and terrifying beauty of an electrical transformer exploding in a lightning storm was the inspiration for Migi Artugue’s musical alias Ativandal. It is a suitable moniker for a project which builds seductively troubled, ambient pop songs with beautifully discordant guitars and ukuleles, looping layers of live and found sounds, while Artugue's expressive tenor lilts from narcotized falsetto to the occasional unfettered roar. A Portland, Oregon based songwriter who currently lives In Melbourne, Australia, Artugue's inspiration covers a broad spectrum of genres, among them folk, electronic and classical music. A perpetual fan of music's past and what it has yet to become, Artugue's Ativandal weaves you a darkly beautiful score, about the wrenching of guts and the love for the unexpected.
