POOLcast 063 - Syntax Erika

Our second POOLcast of the year comes from Syntax Erika, who lives between Mexico and Barcelona. For over 7 years she has been studying and working on projects in the contemporary electronic music and media landscape.

Syntax Erika belongs to the latest generation of artists who do not limit their creative work to the boundaries of one medium. Those who understand art as a hybridization of all senses and demands just that from the audience. Programming is done here, moving images are generated, synthesizers are recorded and music is played as well as created live. Everything that is technically allowed and possible nowadays is explored, studied, exploited and presented for creative expression. Musically that means Dark Ambient, industrial drones, Art-Techno, noise and synthesizer experiments. For her POOLcast she has arranged an interesting mixture of contemporary experimental music to an always emotional mixtape. Natural sounds are mixed with synthetic noises, ambient is permeated by ethereal vocals and Musique Concrete experiments come in all colors and temperatures.

POOLcast 063, for those who didn't have Erika on their list yet, gives a very good picture of her musical world, which you can discover either on her own label Ambient Flux or with the released Syntax Network EP on the Japanese female label GARDIANNN.
