Daniel Lercher (*1983, Judenburg, Styria)
The musician/composer Daniel Lercher is one of the busiest live electronic musicians on the international improvisation scene. His concerts and tours have taken him to Scandinavia, Iceland, South America, India and Australia.
He likes to work in small formations with other musicians (Henrik Nørstebø, Agnes Hvizdalek, Katharina Klement, Peter Kutin, etc.), occasionally with dance (Tara Silverthorn, Asher O’Gorman, etc.)
