The visual artist talks about his varied career.
Morton Subotnick. Fennesz. Deadbeat. Vladislav Delay. What do all of these names have in common? They all have gone to Lillevan at one point or another to provide the live visual accompaniment to their music. The Irish-born, Berlin-dwelling artist is an improviser in the same way as his musical counterparts, an aesthetic that perhaps had its fullest flowering in experimental duo Rechenzentrum. But ever since its dissolution in the '00s, Lillevan has pushed forward to create stunning shows that go far beyond the usual VJ cliche. Seeing as he is as quick with his wit as he is with his visuals, RA caught up with Lillevan earlier this month to explore the non-musical side of the techno world.
