Steve Law

Solitary Sound


Steve Law began experimenting with music making at the age of 15 in 1982, after discovering and becoming fascinated by electronic music. He began to record a series of cassettes, using whatever limited resources were available. The equipment for the early recordings consisted of nothing more than 2 ghetto blasters, a short-wave radio, kitchen utensils, a home-made percussion kit and various other sound-producing objects. In 1983 he obtained his first synthesizer (a Realistic/Moog MG-1 which he still uses today), and quickly learnt the basics of analog synthesis. By 1985 Steve was regularly renting electronic studio equipment, and spent many a sleepless weekend obsessively recording before having to return the equipment on Monday. After many such weekends, Steve's knowledge and recording techniques really began to develop. It's been a very gradual journey since those early days, but over the years Steve Law has developed a reputation as one of the leading exponents of electronic music in Australia, and since the early 1990's that reputation has spread beyond Australia's shores via his successful Zen Paradox project. Today Steve reserves his more personal and eclectic work for release under his own name, as well as his more avant-garde electronic compositions.
