Javier "Cha" Blasco Martos, born on 11th December 1981 in Reus, Spain, is an eclectic artist, computer music composer, producer, DJ, and live electronics performer, now residing in Gothenburg, Sweden.

Blasco has a penchant for breaking traditional musical boundaries, weaving interdisciplinary threads into his creative projects. Since moving to Sweden in 2013, his innovative works have been instrumental in enriching a plethora of performing art projects within the country's cultural realm.

Deeply intrigued by spatial sonic research, programming, data sonification and visualization, Cha continuously pushes the boundaries of his artistic expression. His interests also extend into the sphere of ecosophy and decentralized systems, as he seeks innovative ways to position himself as nature, instead of in nature. This perspective has driven his active engagement in addressing climate issues.

Cha Blasco's discography includes collaborations with notable artists like Pat Mastelotto of King Crimson and Mr. Mister, Jamal Moore, renowned for his work with Ariana Grande, Usher, and Cee Lo Green, and Adrian Benavides, known for his work with Komara, Daughtry, and the Goo Goo Dolls.

In his current role, Blasco spearheads a nonprofit study group, Kreativ Data. This group is dedicated to fostering a community among local artists in Gothenburg, serving as a platform for exploration and research using programming as a tool. This initiative operates under the umbrella of the artist and performing arts platform Skogen, further cementing his contribution to the artistic landscape of Sweden.
