Gábor Lázár is an electronic music producer and sound artist working with forms of abstract rhythmic patterns and textural elements, arranging them into repetitive, serial structures to explore our perceptual and cultural relation to electronic dance music. He uses self-developed software to create such compositions and to perform live involving computer controlled stage lights that allow the listener to have a full-body perceptual experience.
A collaboration with Mark Fell, The Neurobiology Of Moral Decision Making was rated #11 on Rolling Stone Magazine's chart of 20 Best Avant Albums of 2015, and described by Norman Records as "some of the most rhythmically radical and seizure-inducing futurist electronica being made on earth right now.". His album Unfold made for club context was rated #7 by Fact Magazine Top 50 Album, #29 by DJ Mag’s Top 50 Album, #24 by Quietus’s Top 100 Albums and #30 by Boomkat’s Top 100 Albums of 2018, followed by another execution called Source for Planet Mu in 2020.
Lázár has performed at festivals, clubs and institutions such as CTM Festival Berlin, Berlin Atonal, ZKM Karlsruhe, MUTEK Barcelona, Unsound Festival Krakow, Rewire Festival The Hague, Stockholm Modern Museum, House of Electronic Arts Basel, The Empty Gallery Hong Kong, Barcelona Santa Monica Art Centre, Stockholm EMS.
Gábor Lázár’s seventh studio album Boundary Object collects eight tracks of his works released by Planet Mu. According to Pitchfork “Lázár’s sound is rawer in concept than his peers’, and manipulated with an implacable, iimpressive fussiness most producers would never attempt. But what truly sets him apart is something both universal in appeal and organic in spirit: he uses his art, in all its permutations, in order to be himself”.
