Montreal based musician Markus Lake uses his laptop to improvise delicate and complex soundscapes combining digital synthesis and live signal processing techniques. Since his 2011 debut EP for Dream Sequence, Lake's recorded work has explored various themes through a constantly expanding palette of digital instruments. Lake’s next release ‘Third Album’ will be out on Constellation Records in the spring. Live, Markus combines his soundscapes with samples from the black literary canon. He is an Electroacoustics graduate from Concordia University who has also played bass in the Montreal bands Egyptian Cotton Arkestra, Elle Barbara’s Black Space, Sheer Agony, Silver Dapple and Hand Cream.
