Mig Artugue is the defining voice behind (Ativandal), which takes spare drum machines and layers looped guitar and ukulele on top to create a moody atmosphere that builds with increasing anxiety...His time spent in Bay Area punk bands may inform his barely contained intensity with (Ativandal), but background is unimportant when faced with the eerily dissonant pop songs Artugue produces.”

Rev. Adam McKinney -The Weekly Volcano

Audio bio

My name is Miguel (Mig) Artugue. I am a composer and audio engineer.  I also produce and perform original music professionally under the name Ativandal. I'm always seeking new experiences and new friends in creative media with whom I can collaborate or offer my services as a composer, sound designer, audio engineer, foley artist, producer, consultant and/or technician.
Being the son of a professional musician, I've been immersed in music from a young age. My own compositions are layered with raw sounds I record from the world around me. My passions are sound design, scoring for film, television, games and composing jingles.
