electric.kitchen focuses on the live performance of experimental electronic music, propelled by exploration of timbre and rhythm. Instrumentation includes both analog and digital synthesis, DIY hardware and software. Interaction between performer and instrument is primary, utilizing multiple human interface controllers. The project encompases the solo work of Mark Lentczner, and collaborations with others, both composed and improvisational.
Mark Lentczner studied electronic music composition with Ivan Tcherepnin and African drumming with Arthur Hull. After years as a software architect in Silicon Valley (he created the boot sound of the Mac II line), he continues to code, creating open source software and hardware for experimental music.
