Transcending the boundaries of genre, composer-percussionist Lukas Ligeti, son of György Ligeti, has developed a musical style of his own that draws on Downtown New York experimentalism, contemporary classical music, jazz, electronica, and African styles. Following rave reviews for recent release Afrikan Machinery (released on John Zorn's label Tzadik, one of the Wire's top albums of 2008), Ligeti presents a selection of his compositions for solo electronic marimba which reveal an inspiring new take on the dialogue between African and Western music, achieved through ingenious use of sampling and music technology.

"a new generation of musical Superman - a globally minded, technologically adept, technically sophisticated composer who also happens to be a virtuoso performer and accomplished improviser." LA Times
