A basic impulse to form lokai was to combine and expand the sound
spectrum of an electric guitar with the possibilities of electronic
instruments on a structural and tonal level....tracks should oscillate
between song formats and random-like situations. Within this scenario
the dynamic range goes from extremely dense layers to fragile and
ramified constructions of fragmented melodies and sounds. The components
are rendered to instrumental music, thoroughly containing a certain
impressionistic aspect. Lokai was founded in 2003 in Vienna.
