Th ere are only a few beams of lights from the super bright LEDs that illuminate his plain white mask, which erodes every sense of stardom. Next to his laptop and pad controller stands a glass fi lled with a green fl uorescent substance, to which a sensitive piezo-microphone is attached, that is able to convert vibrations into sounds. Erich Lesovsky puts his finger into the glass and swirls it around transmitting this electric impulse into his laptop and, in form of sound, to the crowd. All of this is part of Erich Lesovsky’s live set-up and it is indicative of this producer’s constant search for the creative 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 synthesizers and essentially creates sounds out of everything that he can fi nd or record outside. In recent years he has build a few of his own DIY instruments that include an Atari Punk Console in a Nintendo GameBoy case, a Minimum Th eremin and many more whacky synthesizers. In this way he is a true voyager for inventive sounds while at the same time producing music that can work functionally on the dancefloor.With releases on labels such Parquet, WBA, Keno or Stil vor Talent
Erich’s sound can hit the party at the very right moment, while still remaining an
era of the uncanny and the mysterious. While trying to fi t a genre to his music, techno is maybe the best fi t, but his music and especially his live shows are more than that. Beneath the anonymity of his fi tted mask, Erich Lesovsky magically puts together his own sound creations to a musical corpus that is based on a recurring groovy and bouncy loop. When asked how he would best describe his unconventional approach to producing music, Erich says it’s essentially like putting together a big puzzle. First identifying all the right pieces and then trying to put them together in the right places to create something entirely unique. While using a laptop to combine and sequence his music into tracks, he believes
that it’s easier to create chaos within an analog machine. And aft er all, it is in this
chaos that Erich Lesovsky excels and that makes his music so exceptionally diff erent.If sound was a house, then Erich Lesovsky would be both the builder and the architect. And he would also be the fi rst one to have a house warming party inside.
