Interests and Personality

BiographyMel Araneta is a painter, sculptor and sound artist who was born on July 12, 1973 in Binalbagan, Negros Occidental. He finished his studies at TUP-VISAYAS in 1995. He is also the founding member of the Etniktronika, a group that employs circuit-bending procedures and ethnic instruments to produce their distinct sound. Many of their instruments are crafted from discarded objects usually found in nearby junk shops. His self-made instrument baptized as the "Uyabon" ( means "girlfriend” in Ilonggo dialect) appears as a half-body mannequin with built-in toy keyboard and tampered circuitry. He professes his gratitude to Lirio Salavador of Elemento for inspiration in circuit-bending and d.i.y. electronic instruments.
