Born 1988 in Leipzig, currently living in Berlin. Lorenz Erdmann studied musicology and media studies at the Humbolt-University Berlin and completed his bachelor degree in ‘Music & Media’ in 2013. He’s currently studying in the masters program ‘European Media Studies’ at the University of Potsdam and the University of Applied Science Potsdam. While being engaged in research projects concerning sonification, visualization, history of sound synthesis, animated sound, he got into diffusion sound composition in a masters course held by the composer Simon Vincent.
In his audio pieces he seeks to encounter the tangible and corporeal aspects of sound while engaging with analogue sound carriers, analogue sound synthesis, field recordings and immersive sound environments in his productions.
As producer, musician and DJ he’s interested in blurring the boundaries between dance floor oriented and listening music. He has released several EPs with the electro-acoustic duo ‘Meier & Erdmann’ and runs the record label for diverse electronic music ‘Moniker Eggplant’.
