Simon Littauer is a danish musician and composer with live-performance of modular synthesizers as a focal point in his work. As he is exploring how a performer interfaces with the electronic instrument, he designs his own machines and systems to augment the flexibility and expressiveness with haptic controllers, custom tailored samplers and stochastic compositional techniques.
His sound is dynamic, multilayered, fragmented and draws inspiration from electronic music pioneers such as Autechre, Brian Eno and Richard Devine - a contemporary frontrunner in the field, who has been Littauer’s supervisor in his soloist studies at the Rhythmic Music Conservatory.
The danish music magazine Soundvenue, describes his sound as “the kind of music that makes you forget time and place, and makes the universe feels infinitely large and small at the same time”, in a five star review of his live-performance at Roskilde Festival. Simon Littauer has impressed international audiences with performances at By:Larm in Oslo, G! Festival at the Faroe Islands, in the Royal Danish Theatre as well as in countless venues and nightclubs.
