Metapattern (MPTRN) is a live improvised techno project featuring a modular synthesizer, drum machine and Ableton live or iPad running through a digital mixer capable of many effect and loop layers. The performances are based around rhythmic and tonal elements shaped by the mood and situation.
The energy of this music is designed to engage listeners in a spiral or tunnel of repeating, merging and shape shifting patterns. The focus is on hardware machine-based approach to live performance and production including elements of techno, noise, industrial, modular, drone, melody, and atmosphere. 2018 has been a key year for the project, finding a home in Machine Label for the deeper style releases, and more recently in 2019, Raven Sigh for industrial sound. Metapattern, an Austrian born long-term resident of Australia is based in the city of Brisbane. Time is divided between producing techno under the main alias Metapattern and newly formed duo Voidfil. Outside of production and performance, Metapattern is involved with a local live electronic music collective who promote diverse electronic music experiences. As an Ableton Certified Trainer, he works to foster new talent through user group meetups and has been involved with teaching for a decade at SAE Creative Media Institute.
