About “Doble E”
Edgar Mondragón & Erik López/IMGN, collectively known as “Doble E“, form a dynamic artistic duo hailing from Mexico, blending the realms of electronic music and mesmerizing visual landscapes. With over a decade of creative synergy, Doble E has garnered international attention for their innovative approach to storytelling through the fusion of sound and visuals, having performed live for the first time in Barcelona, Spain, on September 2023.
Edgar Mondragón, the electronic maestro, boasts a prolific career with more than 20 releases and two acclaimed film soundtracks under his belt. Renowned as “one of the brightest lights in the Mexican electronic vanguard” by Marcos Hassan, a music critic, and writer at Remezcla, Mondragón’s music defies ambient clichés, going deeper into contemporary themes and translating them into albums, EP’s and tracks. Creating a unique sonic identity, fusing ambient, drone, noise, dream pop, lo-fi beats, and techno, has propelled him to international acclaim, gracing stages from Mexico to Japan, with notable appearances at festivals like MUTEK, NRMAL, SXSW, and Hipnosis. As Pitchfork aptly observes, “Edgar Mondragón’s music is often jet-black, more attuned to the tensions of psychic turmoil than carefree bliss.”
Erik López, the visual jockey behind IMGN, steers the ship into the uncharted waters of Digital Expressionism. His work, an experimental fusion of photography, video, and 3D modeling, creates live-processed landscapes that explore themes of the internet, cities, and architecture. Embracing a philosophy of excluding technical processes to focus on improvisation and intuition, IMGN’s visual art mirrors the emotional and unconscious gestures of Abstract Expressionism from the 20th century.
Together, “Doble E” have forged an unparalleled audiovisual symbiosis that comes to life in live performances at esteemed cultural venues such as Centro Cultural España, Laboratorio Arte Alameda, and Instituto de Investigaciones Culturales, as well as globally recognized music festivals like MUTEK México+Japón, MUTEK Montreal, SXSW, NRMAL, and Hipnosis. IMGN’s work has not only graced these stages but has also been featured on prestigious digital platforms such as Archdaily, KoozArch, and Homeostasis Lab.
As their creative journey unfolds, “Doble E” invites you to experience the convergence of sound and visuals, transcending the boundaries of artistic expression and leaving an indelible mark on the intersection of electronic music and digital art.
