Ambient electronic music producer LRKR, born Alex Erker, draws
inspiration from World Music in addition to often ignored sounds from
A drummer at heart, LRKR focuses on rhythm to craft his sound. On top of
that, he layers a combination of sampled strings and flutes, plus live sounds
from trumpet, didgeridoo, piano and guitar.
To LRKR, literally everything can be used to produce an interesting song
–chains, lighters, water-filled cups, photocopiers, toothbrushes and singing
bowls - all make their way into his unique music.
In 2015, LRKR self-released his first EP Wait Too Long which the blog
thrdcoast refers to as “… the kind of music that draws you into a hazy, lose-
track-of- time kind of flow, while still keeping you on your toes.” Soundfix
endorses it saying, “make sure to listen to the darkly ambient beats.”
LRKR, one of 8 children, was born in Kansas City, Missouri and grew up in
St. Louis. Currently, he resides in Bushwick, Brooklyn and performs
regularly at local venues. He is also a photographer and knows how to knit
and make stained glass.
