Biography

Komputer is the project of two London-based synth-meisters: Simon Leonard and David Baker, releasing on Mute Records. The duo have been writing, mixing and producing together for over 25 years, formerly in I Start Counting & Fortran 5. Their new album is Synthetik.

Their sound is rigorously electronic and their tracks deal with such diverse subjects as: Russian cosmonauts, rubbish compactors and mobile phone ringtones. Musical antecedents and influences include Kraftwerk, Giorgio Moroder, Syd Barrett and Brian Eno.

Komputer’s debut album, The World Of Tomorrow came out in 1998, as an electro reaction against Oasis’ glorification of The Beatles, substituting Kraftwerk as heroes. Their second album, Market Led was released in 2002, a glitchy slice of mittel-european electronica.

Synthetik, the third album, is a return to the more traditional sound of the first album, with the incorporation of a more experimental and contemporary electronica approach.
