The experimental electronic music of Latvia undoubtlessly for many associates firstly with Gas of Latvia or Andris Indans who in his 20 year long musical activities hasn’t stopped to change and surprise. Creative roots of Indans can be found in industrial rockmusic, but in his last 10 year repertory we can hear almost all history of experimental electronic music of that period. Despite the search of new forms, his existance to a great extent is in his experimentalism and changeability, he has individual style. Ambient and contrasting noisy layers were always present in his diverse music styles, at times joining together seemingly opposite sounds and feelings. His last year music has dense and exquisite digital scenes. Giving way to drone focus and ambient noise freedom, he has found his most convincing, creative range. With the help of minimalism he demonstrates the possibility of noise and electronic liric to coexist.
Since 1996 under the name „Gas of Latvia” more than 10 albums are released , as well as they have had many concerts in Latvia and Europe. Andris Indans is also writing music for films, video works, dance & theatre performances. From 2005 Andris Indans closely cooperate with famous Latvian videoartist Katrina Neiburga.
