Based in Berlin, errorsmith produces clubmusic in the broadest sense since the mid 90’s. He is part of MMM (together with Berghain resident dj Fiedel) and Smith n Hack (with Soundstream/Soundhack). Errorsmith is a solo project, dedicated to the expansion of the sonic horizon thru digital sound synthesis.
Backed by his studies of communication and computer science errorsmith builds his own instruments using a modular software synthesizer. In fact building and improving the instrument while developing a musical piece is the main part of music making. Often a technical idea is the starting point of a track. The musical value and possibilties of such ideas are explored.
In his live performances errorsmith improvises on selfbuilt digital live tools. Again the exploration into what can be done Â´liveÂ´ are constitutional for the musical results and are different from the studiomaterial. His aim is to give himself a high degree of freedom and immediacy during his improvisation. This is realized with realtime sound synthesis, which allows direct sound variations. The use of samples is avoided deliberatly because of their ‘static-ness’.
Like the productions of MMM and Smith n Hack, all errorsmith tracks are released by the artist himself instead of a label to assure the most possible artistic and financial independancy. This is possible through the support of Hard Wax, a Berlin based record store, which is the main distributor of all their releases. Digital formats of their music are available at Beatport.
Errorsmith is also dj-ing. Not tied up to one genre, he’s combining his favourite music in an eclectic mix.
In 2007 errorsmith startet to work with visomat inc. and telematique on an innovative audio-visual concert and installation called ‘Surface refinement’.
