Biography

After several bands, for which he was the composer and also the keyboard player, Thierry Th Desseaux created low distortion unit in 2001. Lucas_a joined him the same year.

low distortion unit specialized for a long time in the realization of soundtracks. Its music and / or sound design have appeared in short-films and video games, such as “alone in the dark : the new nightmare” (2001), “cold fear” (2005)…

low distortion unit’s style is quite pronounced and is designed to add a significant impact to whatever soundtrack Thierry and Lucas work on. The music successfully establishes a variety of moods, suited to the setting each piece is expected to be used. Electronics are used for many aspects of the compositions, incorporating industrialised rhythms, glitches and ambient effects. Guitars, bass and drums are blended into the mix, giving an enhanced depth to each piece of sound. Overall, the soundtracks of low distortion unit carry an air of tension and propel themselves forward with defined purpose.

For musics which are not soundtracks, low distortion unit improves the songwriting structure of rock with electronic instruments, samples and noisy production techniques of industrial music. Built on different forces, such as the 80’s and 90’s gothic materials (for example Nine Inch Nails and Kubrick), electro, harsh EBM or even metal, low distortion unit’s music, described as abrasive, distorted, hyperactive and often aggressive, is generally more listener-friendly than traditional industrial music.
