Biografie

Andre LaFosse has spent over half his life charting the common ground between „live“ and „electronic“ music. As a guitarist, looper, producer, engineer, MIDI programmer, composer, and improviser, he’s made an ongoing habit of upending expectations, questioning convention, and finding connections between wildly diverse elements.

Born in 1974 to two professional classical violinists (his father Leopold and mother Marsha), Andre was exposed to music from the beginning - his very first word was „gig. “ Andre dabbled with piano and violin himself throughout his early years, and studied cello for five of them. But it was an altogether less rarified and more unlikely influence - a chance encounter with a $90 consumer synthesizer - that ended up sparking his long-term musical path.

His newfound curiosity with electronic sound led Andre to 4-track cassette recording and MIDI programming, which in turn led to the purchase of a pawnshop electric guitar in late 1988. Originally intended as a background element to his synthesizer-driven compositions, the electric guitar soon took hold of Andre’s interest and assumed a central role in his work. But his interest in electronics remained a consistent element as well, and was never far from his guitar-driven endeavors.

That duality - guitar performance and electronic sound manipulation, performance verses production, organic and synthetic, - has been perhaps the single most defining factor in LaFosse’s music over the course of his 15 years as a creative musician.
