Arbeiter is an electronic trio that plays live sets created exclusively with analog and digital instruments without the use of a laptop. Drum machines, synthesizers and other machines that can be connected through musical instrument digital interfacing (midi) combine to create a unique sound. The art of improvisation, which is also fundamental in the world of jazz, is inherent in Arbeiter's approach to electronic music and has distinguished their sound – a mix of techno, house and electro. The members of this trio are Dave Octave, Il Uanza and Jama.
