We all know Allert Aalders is mister Sonar Traffic in Utrecht. The guy is so busy that it’s hard to get him to play live. We are so proud he paid us a visit at the Modulab Fall event. His set started dreamily and evolved to be a pretty remarkable experience.
In his set, Allert presents you with several distinct spaces. It’s like a friendly visit to a haunted house. Excellent textures are created on the spot. You never know what’s coming around the corner.
Mr. Modular himself createas complex textures from scratch. He thinks he should make more music but is very busy as a sound engineer for various acts and TivoliVredenburg Utrecht. He used to be a Member of the fgamous 90’s Utrecht Techno act Human Beings. Now he wants to pick up his music production again doing detroit techno, new wave, industrial and pop music.
Allert is one of the founders of Sonar Traffic, an impressive studio and education spot with tons of original synthesizers and equipment. He also organizes Modulation, a periodic Modular Synth and DIY events at Kytopia Utrecht.
