Being of sturdy German stock, J Lesser has oft been mistaken as a techno producer, a metal guitarist, an olde-timey photographer and a drive-thru tree; with unfortunate results. His 2001 album, Gearhound, won an honorable mention for Digital Musics in the Prix Ars Electronica and subsequently went out of print. When not manning the modular synth alongside his compatriots in Matmos or blipping with members of Aspects of Physics, he dreams of executive producing something for television or film (an animated romantic comedy - imagine "When Harry Met Sally"... IN SPACE). His new album, "Elder Bits" (2012), is a self-produced cassette chronicling 2 years of modular synth exploration.
