Rafaël puts together his videos in the same way he creates a visual counterpart for musical expressions in real-time during his VJ performances: by tying together an amalgam of drawn, photographic and video images from his intimate surroundings, layered with a sense of humour and then edited according to rhythmical variations, from kinetic to almost static and back again. A visual idiom unequalled in the nether regions of the electronic music world: looking for beauty and recognition between all that’s drab, dingy and wayward, looking for an identity and personality among a stream of clawing and rending impulses. In ’El hijo & el libro’ Rafaël tangles an openly associative web of visual and musical references around two of the things he loves most: his son and the work of Korean artist Milk Pack, best known for his ingenuous, almost childlike illustrations.
