Gavin Rayna Russom is a New York based multimedia artist and composer of electronic music. Using the analogue and digital synthesizer she has produced a body of extremely influential art and music over the last 15 years. She is perhaps best known as the synthesist in the critically-acclaimed band LCD Soundsystem.
As someone who had never been comfortable in the fixed ideas which surrounded gender, the possibilities of analogue synth electronic production were a critical way for her to engage with the outside world and still be authentic to her internal world.
Known in the electronic community as “The Wizard” for her technical prowess, she has built custom analogue synthesizers for the likes of James Murphy (LCD Soundsystem), Tim Goldsworthy (UNKLE, The Loving Hand) and Bjorn Copeland (Black Dice).
Rayna performs a one-off live set exclusively at Mardi Gras Central.
