Underground musician Rosa Arruti has worked for many years under the anonymous alias NAD SPIRO, a solo venture where complex processed guitars are built into a world of spectral textures and sound fictions.

Her recordings have been released on the prestigious Spanish experimental label GEOMETRIK RECORDS and other imprints like Farpoint Recordings (IE) or Sloow Tapes (BE), with contributions to compilations like “The Laptop and Electronic Music” (Contemporary Music Review, Edinburgh) or Silent Records label relaunch cd (San Francisco).

Member of some of Barcelona’s cult underground bands (MohoChemie, Tendre Tembles, Psicópatas del Norte…) she has collaborated with other experimentalists like  My Cat is an Alien or Kim Cascone. Besides her recordings, she has developed site specific projects, urban soundscapes, live soundtracks (Xcèntric cinema) and radio pieces. She gave a workshop on “Sonic Camouflage” as part of the educational program at the Fundació Miró museum (2005-06).
