Lars Kristian Lia

Lars Kristian Lia PRESSPUNKTLars Kristian Lia is an electronic music-producer and performer based in Kristiansand (NO). In his artistic research Lars Kristian is exploring the possibilities of expressive playing through digital instruments, aiming to take full advantage of the innovative polyphonically expressive controllers of the new generation of MIDI (MPE, MIDI 2.0).

In his artistic practice he has fully integrated the expressive digital controllers, which contributes to the unique and organic soundscapes in his music and allowing him to manipulate sound in a very tactile way with great precision, while combining live-sampling, improvisation with prepared sounds and field recordings.

At this year’s Punkt he will take the audience on a meditative sonic journey through a solo Live Remix, making use of his expressive tools.
