My name is Diego Manatrizio and I make music under the name Flaaryr. I am an experimental composer, performer, guitarist, improviser and sound designer born in Buenos Aires, Argentina in 1993 and based in Reykjavík, Iceland since 2019.

My music is strongly characterised by rhythmic experimentation, multilayered live looping and a thorough exploration of the timbrical and textural possibilities of acoustic instruments, electronics, everyday objects and the interaction between these elements.

My work can be found in diverse forms. From intricate precise compositions to deconstructed club beats to fully improvised chaotic noise, delivering an intense live performance that is in a continuous process of transformation driven by curiosity and playfulness.

Besides my solo project, I play in the bands dreymandi hundur and Hungría, and make music and sound design for theater, dance and performance.
I am part of the art collectives Post-dreifing and Agalma from Iceland, Gandula from Spain and anomalía ediciones from Argentina.

Since 2014 I have constantly and consistently composed, performed, recorded and released with multiple projects.

After relocating in 2019 I got increasingly involved and active in the Icelandic music scene and have collaborated with local and international artists such as Magnús Tryggvason Elíassen, Tumi Árnason, Ægir Sindri Bjarnason, K.Óla, Guðmundur Arnalds, Carla Zimbler, Blanco Teta, Violeta García, Carola Zelaschi, Lucy Patané, Milagro de Catamarca, Fra Zedde, John McCowen, Takumi Motokawa, Korter í Flog, Supersport! among many others.

Through the years and projects I released 17 albums, toured in Europe and South America and, most importantly, developed a distinctive way of composing and performing.

I am an earnest advocate of DIY/DIT (Do It Together) dynamics. Focusing on inclusivity, diversity, safer space and an active community involvement, which I consider essential elements for any art scene to thrive.

I acknowledge that -no matter how abstract- art cannot be fully separated from the social-political context of its creation, and my work is shaped by these convictions.
