Members: Oscar Hauyon
Chilean Songwriter. Keyboardist and electronic musician.
After several sound experiments under the name of Hauyon (just the last name), this author gets back to the song path which started in 2001 as main songwriter, keyboardist and singer of theChilean rock-pop band Polter (2001-2010), with a solo work intended to save the alternative and electro sounds of the last three decades .
Together with Polter, Oscar Hauyon got several private and state funds (Fondart Regional, Fondo GORE, Fondo de la Musica Nacional), national level contests (Rock & pop radio The song of the summer and the Sello Azul contest from the Chilean copyright society ) and they took their music to a big part of Latin America through 9 videos that rotated in MTV, VÃa X and other video music networks. The band stopped their activities in May of 2010, after several tours and 2 albums released, Polter (Sello Azul, 2005) and Moderno (Feria Music, 2008).
In 2011, they posthumously edited 3, a downloadable album through its site www.polter.cl
Parallel to his work with Polter, Oscar Hauyon was invited keyboardist of bands from Santiago such as Sonica, Lulu Jam and De Saloon. He has made remixes for bands such as Golem, Phono, Picnic Kibun and Makiabella.
The first solo project of Oscar Hauyon was the electronic music that accompanied his radio program Mi primera vez en la Perla from La Perla del dial radio, the first radio that only plays Chilean music, in 2008. These musical creations and others made later can be listened in the digital EP HuÃda, with creations that debate between the dance and the industrial rock.
In 2010, and after the end of Polter, Oscar Hauyon was called by the collective Limari Rock to collaborate with a song in the compilation CD of this association. This experience leaded to a new encounter with the composition and songwriting.
Caida (Fall) and Un Sabado de Febrero (A February's Saturday) are the songs that comes to show a new side of the songwriter from Ovalle, It talks about the growing process and acceptation by which the musician went through. In the new creations of Oscar Hauyon the experience in the electronic music and the rock-pop heritage obtained in the writing work with Polter blend with industrial and indietronic sounds.
Whether it be as Oscar Hauyon (rock songwriter), as Hauyon (electronic/industrial) or as the mind under the songs of Polter. The creativity of this artist is still being eager and persistent.
