ulises4000 is the DJ alias of Pablo Ulises Lienhard, an improviser and sound artist. He can regularly be found performing on saxophones, (no-input) mixing desks, effect pedals or computers in different contexts. "I like dancing, I like listening, I like to be surprised and challenged. I try to neither take music nor my self too seriously. I create my DJ sets according to this while respecting the vibe I find at the venue. Stylistically my sets can range from experimental, through ambient to deconstructed, breaks and clubby stuff, while including noise and maybe even some trashy y2k edits. Probably with a slight tendency towards the faster and more energetic end of the spectrum."
