The Chairman

The Chairman


The Chairman is a combined exercise in self-therapy and artistic display for the songwriter Lucas Berner. Drum machines played through valve amplifiers sprinkled with Afro beats and analogue synthesizers characterize the musical part of the universe where The Chairman takes on his own state of mind, broken relationships and everyday life.

Digital merges with organic, musical effects from soul, disco and primal rock are applied and the lyrics draw on inspiration from doomsayers like Leonard Cohen and Johnny Cash.
