– Argo Vals – electric guitar, drum machines, looper and effects pedals
Argo Vals is a composer and guitarist from Estonia. He has been recording music mainly by himself since 2006, composing for several diverse acts and groups. Argo started experimenting and performing with live-electronics in 2008. His setup consists of electric guitar, drum machines, looper and effects pedals. The emerging architecture of sounds resembles at times post-rock, nordic jazz, math rock, minimal, ambient and IDM.
Argo’s music has been featured on Los Angeles based public radio station KCRW, the European culture channel ARTE and in British national daily newspaper The Guardian.
His debut album “Tsihcier” was released in 2012 and the second album “Nokturn” in 2015. Both records were nominated as the Best Alternative/Indie Albums of the Year at Estonian Music Awards. In 2016, Argo Vals was nominated as the Male Artist of the Year at Estonian Music Awards.
Vals has spoken of prog’s baroque beauty, whilst recognizing the wisdom of staying within minimal forms – Far From Moscow.
