Grischa Lichtenberger (born 1983) is a multidisciplinary experimental artist living in Berlin, known for his involvement in a variety of arts such as writing, graphics, installations, video and music. Grown up in a withdrawn farmhouse near Bielefeld (Westphalia), his artistic approach developed from surveying the landscape as reference for the condition of art production itself. Landscape, in this sense, is understood not only as the picturesque or sublime recreational facility of nature, but as an interaction between the traces of biographical history and the material concreteness of the present surroundings.
The aggressive tone in his sound design has its counterpart in an emotional depth of the musical structure - a hermetic idiosyncrasy of rhythm and melodies that implement a personal handwriting into the arrangement and sculpture of the sound elements. The music aims towards a paradoxical parallelism of introspective moods on the dance floor and unsettling contemplations in an intimate listening situation. Tumbling between funky, highly energetic beats and trembling, concerning melodies, an almost tactile honesty reaches out to the individual listener. Technology appears not as the perfect, mathematically defined form, but as an index of failure and error, as a shadow of the spooking despairs and desires of its producer, engraved in the finiteness of the concrete form to be embraced by the attentive.
