Fernando Perales, musician, performer, cinema critic and box trainer, he was born in Buenos Aires, Argentina, in 1971. He is one of the most important figures of the experimental music and avant garde scene of Buenos Aires, in Argentina.

Viva la Muerte is Fernando Perales’s solo project,based on free improvisation and on the non-semantic difference between noise and traditional musical sounds, using composition and execution techniques,working without a harmonic an melodic structure, focusing on exploring the timbric and material aspect of sound and noise. Viva la muerte is a unipersonal orchestra,composed of guitars,tapes,contact mics,pieces of metal,garage tools,metals sheets and industrial matrix fallen into disuse,creating a mix of noise,drone and post-industrial minimalism.
Viva La Muerte has three records: “Necrofolia y tradición” (2009, Facón Records, Argentina), “Punshiment and expiation” released through Electronik Music, London, and “Cuartos azules” in collaboration with the musician and producer from New Zealand, Antony Milton. And a track, in the compilation “Klingt.org: 10 Jahre Bessere Farben” (Mikroton Recordings, MIKROTON CD 5/6) (Russia).
Among other projects, and after the end of Reynols, he formed ÜL, a guitar trio, with another former member of the band, Anla Courtis. With ÜL, he has released 3 records since 2007, through Pjorn Records (Scotland), Zhelezobeton from Russia and Facón Records, from Argentina.
