C. H. Desafinado

Champoy was born in Camp Phillips, Bukidnon. He loves making noise and music with other people in Los Angeles and tries to get away with it by calling it "art". He has been previously making recordings under CH Desafinado for the past three years. Other people know him only as Champ. He is consistently out of tune all the time. "Desafinado' is a bit of a word puzzle. In Portuguese and Spanish, 'afinar' means 'to sharpen' so the past tense, 'afinado' means 'sharpened.' The 'des' prefix is the same as 'dis' in English; it reverses the meaning. So 'desafinado' would literally mean 'not sharpened.' But it this context it really means that the musical notes haven't been sharpened; therefore, 'not tuned', 'discordant', something along those lines." (from www.knowyourmusic.com)
