Dave Guerrero, (b.1975) aka dwavehed, originally from San Antonio, Texas, is a long time musician but has found a new expression through creating visuals.
I was fascinated by video feedback and optical effects at a young age, and since 2015 have decided to persue this passion by pressing into visual experiments and becoming a practicing visual artist.
I mostly use a combination of standalone antiquated video mixers, cameras, video synthesizers, and liquid lightshow techniques to tune in feedback and sculpt light with.
After several years of home video feedback experiments, I got my foot in the door with my first music video for QRAM by Dreamweapon after meeting them at a gig in Bielefeld, Germany where I have been living since 2011. Since then, I have created various music videos for Firefriend, Revvnant, Spettro, Arcane Allies, and Ornamental.
A career highlight / dream come true was being asked to assist Chris 'Innerstrings' Tomsett at Fuzz Club Eindhoven 2019, where we provided visuals for Routine Death, Dead Vibrations, Medicine Boy, Froth, Iguana Death Cult, The Oscillation, The Gluts, Radar Men From The Moon, Firefriend, Vuelveteloca, JuJu, NONN, Lumerians, The Janitors, and 10,000 Russos.
2020 was proving to be a big launch into the European Psychedelic scene, but unfortunately due to COVID-19, my tour dates supporting Firefriend / Black Doldrums, returning to team with Innerstrings at Fuzz Club Eindhoven 2020 main stage, as well as covering all visuals for PSYCHEBERG Berlin 2020 were cancelled.
Although there haven't been many gigs, I've been building a library of clips with my video synthesizer to be integrated when gigs are possible again.
I'm also extremely excited to be registered to take a remote learning class with Lance Gordon of Mad Alchemy Analog Liquid Light Show.
I’m a married father of 3 and work full time as Production Leader at Schmidt Array Pedalboards.
