Léonard Steyaert

Biographie

"Complex rhythms, organic synthesizers, warm guitars and a celestial voice: these are the ingredients of Léonard Steyaert's music that collide into an enchanting electronic whirlpool. As a classically trained musician and modular synthesizer developer, Steyaert pours his sound experiments into intimate songs. Sometimes threatening, sometimes explosive, yet ever-alluring. Léonard Steyaert currently works as a programmer/developer for Shakmat Modular and is a resident artist at Volta Brussels in 2021-2022."

Influences vary from modern classical composer Olivier Messiaen for harmony and symbolism; post-Kid-A Thom Yorke, Björk and the Beatles for complex song structures ; to experimental electronic artists such as Actress and Warp/Hyperdub artists for sound production.


His current live set (45 min/60min) includes 9 songs which he performs (voice, analogue synths, electronics, guitar) , sometimes with live visual artist Thomas Johannes (on interactive video feedback).

Bio:

Formed as a classical pianist during his youth, Léonard Steyaert rapidly developed a strong interest in experimental and innovative applications of technology in artistic contexts. In parallel with his electronics/Information-Technology engineering studies at the University of Brussels (VUB/ULB) he worked as a composer and modular synthesiser performer with choreographer Louise Everaerts de Velp.
With an exchange year focusing on acoustical engineering at the Technical University of Denmark, a master thesis about signal processing methods for audiovisual performances, a year of Live Electronics (Music) at the Royal Conservatory of Brussels (KCB) and a year of History of Art at the ULB, Léonard Steyaert 's path shows a broad curiosity in diverse sectors, although all connected by his interests in art , music and technology.
Today, Léonard composes/produces/performs his music under his own name and works as a developer and embedded programmer of modular synthesisers for Shakmat Modular.
