Gábor Lázár is a Hungarian artist specializing in producing electronic music at the intersection of advanced music technology and the aesthetic tendencies related to the culture of computer music. Gábor is fascinated by how musical, technical, and aesthetic challenges are interconnected. His studio recordings and live performances are both expressions of his self-developed instruments and music-making systems. His practice involves techniques derived from the fields of aleatoric and stochastic music, as well as a re-imagining of the aesthetic realm of computer music culture that emerged in the late '90s and early '00s.
Between 2013 and 2023, he released eight LPs, including a collaboration with Mark Fell and a split release with Russell Haswell. He has been working with record labels such as Raster-media, Planet Mu, Shelter Press, The Death of Rave, and Presto!?. Gábor has performed at festivals, clubs, and institutions worldwide. Some notable venues include Mutek Montreal, MUTEK Barcelona, Public Records New York, The Empty Gallery Hong Kong, CTM Festival Berlin, Berlin Atonal, ZKM Karlsruhe, Unsound Festival Krakow, Rewire Festival The Hague, Stockholm Modern Museum, House of Electronic Arts Basel, Barcelona Santa Monica Art Centre, Stockholm EMS, Terraforma Milan, Pirelli HangarBicocca Milan, and many more. Gábor lives and works in Budapest, having studied media art at the University of Pécs from 2010 to 2013.
His audiovisual performances are multimedia experiences that fit best in club environments and festival stages with standing audiences. The performance explores musical and visual references of Gábor’s interests, ranging from the aesthetics of electronic dance music to the deconstructive approach and systematic compositional strategies of computer music.
