Actus(latin): "a doing, an impulse"
Tekton(greek): "builder, crafter"
Being a musician, a designer and an avid visitor of raves and festivals, Actitect (Joris Visser, 1980) strives to find the best balance between musicality, dancefloor-effectiveness, technology and performance. Although he directs his productions at the global techno-genre, he explores the boundaries of this style with attention for conceptual and melodic elements.
The atmosphere of his work can be described as saturated and harmonious, as well as melancholic, rude and synthetic. In his live act, Actitect brings his dynamic set with a musician-like approach: live synthesizers and live percussion combined with mixing, drumcomputers and effects.
