Marcus Fischer has been a staple figure in modern ambient and experimental music for the better part of the last decade. Characterized by his masterful use of tape loops, Fischer’s works also build space and emotion through layers of baritone guitar and modular synths. His solo debut, ‘Monocoastal’, was released on 12k in 2010 to international acclaim. Over the course of his career, he has partnered with several artists: Matt Jones (as Unrecognizable Now), Ted Laderas/The OO-Ray, Simon Scott, Devin Underwood. His collaborations with Taylor Deupree, with whom Fischer released ‘Twine’ in 2015, are masterclasses in shared voice and restraint.
Fischer is a longstanding member of lines, the online community that surrounds Eurorack module and instrument maker monome.
