Origami is me, just me. A part of me. With influences such as Skinny Puppy, FSOL, Depeche Mode, Legendary Pink Dots, Fad Gadget, John Foxx or The Young Gods, I try in my humble way to make the most personal music as an expression of my own self.
As for myself, my name is David Martinez, born in 1976, and I live in Valencia, Spain.
In 1994 I started a band called Our Personal Darkness, convinced by a friend of mine. We wanted to make Depeche Modish music. The truth was my friend never did anything (and I mean, never) so we never did anything as a band, but it was a leitmotiv for my starting writing lyrics. I composed around 10 songs but I just had a casio keyboard and no money and soon changed my musical aim for literary attempts.
After writing a lot of short stories and around 400 lyrics, I resumed in 2003 my passion: music. I bought some software and started one of my most important reasons for living, my music. My life has changed since then, for the better! Since then I've made about 7 albums as a process of learning.
nope for the moment.
Everything: things I see, things I don't see but I'd like to see, things I adore, things I absolutely refuse, everything which is in contact with me may influence me in a way or another.
regarding musical influences, uff lots of. mainly electronic but of many different styles:
the legendary pink dots
the rorschach garden
the young gods
nine inch nails
john foxx (both his metamatic and his Louis Gordon era, not his pop one)
meat beat manifesto
-sequencer: FL Studio.
-synths: soft synths:DUNE, Synth 1, Korg MS-20, Polyiblit, Ugo String Theory, Superwave, among others.
I don't consider myself a musician, just a player. I play with sounds, with everything that comes out of my head, like a child ripping out his toys in order to see what's inside. So I just wish you can enjoy listening to my music as I enjoy "playing" it. Thanks for devoting some of your time with it.
