About Andri Søren:
Andri Søren performs and produces music, spanning the genres from house and techno to soundtracks and soundscapes, going in-between bright, low-tempo synthpop to dark, driving electro and dark, lush ambient electronica as sonoren. Of Icelandic/Scottish origin, Andri is currently based in Brussels; the vibrant, chaotic and contradictory capital of Europe and Belgium, where he is busy organising club nights and concerts as well as performing and producing. Performances are often completely improvised, based on an ever-developing live set into which years of synth-hunting, techniques and ideas have gone. Learning to play the piano and the violin from an early age, and once a tenor in a choir, the impulse behind live performances are to enjoy as much as possible the possibilities of improvisation and experimentation, employing the incredible versatility of ‘digital’ performing techniques and tools such as step-sequencers and modulation automation together with the analogue through the playing and performing of various instruments; sampled, synthesised, or sung. It is the moment of making, of creating which is key. Andri has performed at venues across Europe, including Iceland Airwaves, Beursschouwburg in Brussels and will speak at TEDx on the 14th of March. He also teaches music performance and production, and is a product specialist endorsed by Ableton and has a popular Youtube channel. Lastly he is a co-founder of FTRSND, a collective of like-minded musicians located at the AB in Brussels, working together on curating, promoting and sharing good music.
