Bio:

T h ere are only a few beams of lights from the super brightLEDs that illuminate his plainwhite mask, which erodes every sense of stardom. Next tohis laptop and pad controllerstands a glass fi lled with a green fl uorescent substance,to which a sensitive piezo-microphoneis attached, that is able to convert vibrations into sounds.Erich Lesovsky puts hisfi nger into the glass and swirls it around transmitting thiselectric impulse into his laptopand, in form of sound, to the crowd. All of this is part of ErichLesovsky’s live set-up and itis indicative of this producer’s constant search for thecreative chaos of sound manipulation.His studio is best described as a cluttered nerd workshop,where Erich takes apart children’smusic toys, gets deep into the art of signal processing,builds his own synthesizersand essentially creates sounds out of everything that hecan fi nd or record outside.In recent years he has build a few of his own DIYinstruments that include anAtari Punk Console in a Nintendo GameBoy case, aMinimum T h eremin and manymore whacky synthesizers. In this way he is a true voyagerfor inventive sounds whileat the same time producing music that can work functionallyon the dancefl oor.With releases on labels such as Pentagonic, WBA, Keno,Stilvor Talent or Parquet RecordsErich’s sound can hit the party at the very right moment,while still remaining anera of the uncanny and the mysterious. While trying to fi t agenre to his music, technois maybe the best fi t, but his music and especially his liveshows are more than that. Beneaththe anonymity of his fi tted mask, Erich Lesovsky magicallyputs together his ownsound creations to a musical corpus that is based on arecurring groovy and bouncy loop.When asked how he would best describe hisunconventional approach to producing music,Erich says it’s essentially like putting together a big puzzle.First identifying all the rightpieces and then trying to put them together in the rightplaces to create something entirelyunique.
