Artist Info

The Use

The Use
Image from Discogs
Powered by Audioscrobbler™The Use makes intricate and fluid electronic music influenced by IDM experiments with home-made software and years of experience in free improvisation. Michael Durek secretly obtained his first Dr. Dre tape when he was 9 years old, and was later blown away by the beats of Dre, Cypress Hill, and Eminem records. His background in classical piano brings the harmonies of Bach and Chopin to the piano roll and synthesizers. Later in life he began playing with the experimental act “Pas Musique”, touring around the world while playing theremin with the likes of Rachel Mason, Philippe Petit, The Rutgers Symphony Orchestra and many others. Pas Musique introduced him a whole new kind of music making – one based on pure expression and texture. Inspirations include Autechre, Flying Lotus, Nosaj thing, and Sufjan Stevens. The distinctive textures of analog synths, home-made digital instruments and fx, theremins, and field recordings lavish his debut release, “What’s The Use?” on Alrealon Musique, out 2014, which features cameos and co-writing from Rachel Mason, Trinitron, and ex-Lumineers Drummer, Jay Van Dyke.
