“I discovered ambient music when I was a teenager with the record “No Pussyfooting” by Robert Fripp and Brian Eno. First upset, then I went from fascinated to obsessed. At the time, I wondered what it would sound if this droning guitar record was played by a classical orchestra. A few weeks later, I discovered Glass, Reich and Riley and it was quite a shock. For me, it was the discovery of being able to transform the music into a solid element that invaded the room.”
Lo-Fitronics is the audio and visual project of french musician Arnaud Le Coq. Born in 1983, all his childhood was about drawing, all his adolescence was about music. After studying and graduating in music school and conservatory in Jazz, he began working with various groups as a guitarist in Paris in the 2010’s. When he moved from Paris in 2017, he decided to focus on his music, searching the balance between concrete and abstract, between instinct and study, trying to create hallucinatory pieces.
Arnaud is fascinated by all the great Jazz masters from the 30s to the 60s and he says that if that is not an audible influence in what he does, it is there, as a goal, to reach instant creation. Among others, some of his musical heroes are: Robert Wyatt, J.S.Bach, Bob Dylan, John Lee Hooker, John Coltrane and Bill Frisell.
