Ricardo Donoso is a composer, percussionist and electronic musician from Rio de Janeiro, Brazil who currently resides in Boston. After having studied composition at Berklee College of Music and New England Conservatory he has participated in a slew of projects over the years, most notably playing drums for avant-death metal unit Ehnahre and being one half of the ever morphing electronic duo Perispirit.
Ricardo’s musical vocabulary draws as much from contemporary composition, drone, to techno and noise.A year before exploding onto the electronic music scene in 2011with the critically acclaimed Progress Chance, Ricardo Donoso‘s debut release Deterrence was issued as an extremely limited cassette edition – a through-composed ambient piece, Deterrence is stripped of all the rhythmic flux which he has become known for.
Considered by many in underground circles to be a true masterwork of the Dark Ambient genre, Deterrence is often times compared to works by artists such as Lustmord, Biosphere & Deathprod. Denovali is pleased to finally present this much needed reissue, five years from its inception.
