Poétique Électronique began life as a duo made up of Ben Auris and Moritz Gaudlitz. Ben, a solo artist, has been writing, producing and performing for more than a couple of years. Moritz works as a DJ for electronic music, a music producer and as a journalist.
After meeting in Vienna, the pair started mixing their distinct musical styles as an experiment. The boundaries quickly became blurred, the two of them bringing in and fusing their own musical influences – resulting in warm, deep synthsounds and perscussive drum beats, combined with reverberating guitar tunes, finished with Ben’s rough, somewhat haunting voice.
Their musical project survived Ben’s move to Paris and in summer 2012 they released their first EP ‘The Paris Session’. Gathering momentum, they then started playing live shows in Vienna, Berlin and Munich.
In the beginning of 2013 Poétique Électronique reevaluated their position both musically and geographically. They are now based in Berlin, have recruited two new band members and have recorded their second EP ‘The Imperfection of the human being’ which will be released on May 30th 2013.
