ΩTek is an electronic music producer whose presence in the underground scene of Riga has been recognized for years. His sound is known to drift from ambient, noise and chiptune to techno, sometimes dub and dmb. While lately he has performed together with many of those shaping the electronic music scene in Latvia, this time for Erica Synths Garage ΩTek will perform solo.
Karlis Vitols performs live at (out of) Erica Synths Garage using pc laptop as a mic fx processor, Shure Green Bullet, granular piano, LXR DIY drum machine & DIY modular synth with Erica Synths DIY included.
Karlis Vitols, whose musical explorations started with a punk-rock band back when he was fifteen, has just recently left the field of Blues. After he stopped playing Harmonica or Mississippi Saxophone in a band Čehols, a certain interest in electronic music appeared. Artist himself explains that the natural landscapes are the biggest impulse for a creative work with modular synthesisers; the charm is said to hide in the static and the abstract nature of electronic music.
