He uses cheap electronics, open source software, synthesis, and obsolete audio equipment to create sparse sonic environments for personal reflection. He runs verz.
Sonic Luz are Klaus Filip and noid.
Most traditional synthesisers put a strong emphasis on reproducibility and the stability of pitch. Therefore they need big and complex mechanisms usually realised inside a black box.
For Sonic Luz the priority is a maximum of flexibility and the possibility for haptic interaction on all the parts of the tone production.
