Hello, my name is Joseba Elorza and I was born in Vitoria-Gasteiz, a small city in the Basque Country, Spain. I studied to become sound technician and later spent a couple of unfruitful years in art school. It was all this synesthesic hodgepodge where MiraRuido sprang from; I used to spend the morning as a sound thechnician in a radio station and the evening working on collages. Sight gradually took over hearing, and presently I’m making a living as an illustrator and animator.
– And what does “MiraRuido” mean?
– Well, it’s just the union of two Spanish words: “Mira” = “look, see” and “Ruido” = “noise”.
