Since 2001, Liminus has spent most of his waking hours making paintings and interactive art. In the early months of 2012, however, he left behind most everything he knew and strapped himself into the Polish Ambassador’s space Escalade. Since then, Liminus and the Ambassador have performed over a hundred shows together, co-piloted more than 20,000 miles of American road, and spent untold hours scheming on art in poorly-decorated hotel rooms and desolate airports. This unusually deep collaboration between an electronic musician and a visual artist has propelled the duo into rich creative territory.
In contrast to most musical acts, the Ambassador and Liminus perform side by side, to feed off each other’s inspiration and to put the show’s visual dimension on par with the music. Being in such synergistic flow, and also so intimately acquainted with the music, allows Liminus to create improvisational visuals that are exquisitely attuned to the mood of the music.
When not on stage with Polish, Liminus can usually be found neck-deep in some geeky art shit. While normal people sleep, Liminus feverishly draws, programs, and hacks, endlessly looking for ways to make TPA shows more and more dynamic, immersive, and interactive. To witness the delicious madness he is currently cooking up, get your ass and your eyes down to the nearest Polish Ambassador show.
