In one of his former lives, Cologne-based Lu Katavist was exploring freestyle electronica and expanding the borders of experimental drum'n'bass under the elfish echo moniker (releases on source records and km20), but now he's focussing on improvised live-electronics, controlling a modular system with the Haken Continuum Fingerboard.
Happily joining a new and growing worldwide scene of modular experimentalists, he also loves playing live, especially when there's an opportunity to jam with other musicians (in which case he'll refrain from using loopers and plastering everything with thick drones).
Lu Katavist has a vinyl album out now on smalldeath.org
records, it's called "retoxis", and it's available online through webshops like staalplaat.com
and through discogs.
"The only constant thing is change" – music is the magic of the moment
Self-ventilated was played on Haken Continuum Fingerboard, modular synthesizer and Resonator Neuronium. This music was improvised and recorded "live" to stereo (no edits, no overdubs) in September 2012 and February 2013
