Montreal based musician Markus Lake uses his laptop to improvise delicate and complex soundscapes combining digital synthesis and live signal processing techniques. Since his 2011 debut EP for Dream Sequence, Lake's recorded work has explored various themes through a constantly expanding palette of digital instruments. Live, Markus combines his soundscapes with samples from the black literary canon. Lake’s latest release ‘Third Album’ was released by Constellation Records in March 2020. He is an Electroacoustics graduate from Concordia University who has also played bass in Montreal bands Egyptian Cotton Arkestra, Elle Barbara’s Black Space, Sheer Agony, Silver Dapple, Hand Cream as well as lending his voice to the short-lived punk band, Neighbour’s Guitar.
