The Human Experience - David Block
“The Human Experience” is David Block’s principal project as a live electronic composer, multi-instrumentalist, producer. Listeners experience a delicious symphonic blend of prismatic soundscapes and sultry beats.
David is consistently redefining himself as an artist, performer, and human being. Moving and traveling around the world, meeting people from all walks of life and realms of consciousness, he is continually learning, growing, and sharing inspiration with those around him.
He first fell in love with music at age 4, crawling behind his living room sound system with headphones on. He left his body and traveled through the landscape of sound. It all began with a piano.
His music continually grows. His ambient music has evolved over the years as the musical geometries unfold in different ways and move in different directions.
9 Theory is the solo project of eclectic producer, singer/songwriter, and recording/mixing engineer, Gabe Lehner, who has been passionately focused on creating music for nearly 20 years, perhaps most notably with the past projects Inspired Flight and Metrofique. With a love for learning guitar and writing songs that slowly evolved into an obsession with producing, recording, and making beats, Gabe has come into his own as a renowned producer with a knack for effectively blending different genres of electronic, indie rock, and hip-hop into an original, unique sound, and has become an impressive remix artist as well.
The culmination of Gabe's 20-year journey has led to the birth of his first solo project, 9 Theory, which combines many different genres into a beat-heavy electronic sound with flavors of hip-hop and indie rock that has been compared to acts like Gorillaz, Radiohead, Postal Service, and DJ Krush. Although 9 Theory is based around Gabe's own production and songwriting it also involves numerous collaborations and featured guests, including female vocalists and MC’s both on the recorded music and in the live show.
