The Landau Orchestra is a project that focuses towards a perfect blend of acoustic instruments (4 brass, 4 string, 2 winds), piano and electronics. Formed in 1998, Landau was originally a union of four songwriters/producers geared towards writing melodic electronic music. Their earliest influences included the 1990’s Warp scene, trip hop, drum & bass and western art music. The group’s underlying goal and aesthetic has always been the seamless blend of acoustic and electronic sound. Their sound has been compared to Plaid, Autechre, The Cinematic Orchestra, and Matmos, among others.

After a series of offerings on labels in England, Canada and the U.S., Landau released its interna­tional debut on Merck Records, entitled Thepicompromise. Since its release in 2004, the record has gained much international attention and praise. The Landau Orchestra released their debut album [album]Janus Plays Telephone[/album] on Milan Records in 2007.
