Continuing the tradition of classically trained musicians forsaking their Ph.D.s for the more immediate inspiration of free electronic music and laptronica, Tigerbeat6 brings you the pure and vibrantly enjoyable songs of Nathan Michel, a mix of twangy guitars and simple little bleep-beats, lush organ chords, squeaky toys, catchy melodies and sweet nothings - all performed, assembled, disassembled and reassembled into zig-zag structures, beats and hooks that give new meaning to the words "lo-fi." Trapped in the hallowed and isolated halls of East Coast academe (hey, Yale and Princeton, what's up?) Michel looks for inspiration in the work Captain Beefheart, DAT Politics, the Akan people of Ghana, Scratch Pet Land, Steely Dan, Igor Stravinsky, Thelonius Monk, Conlon Nancarrow, Kid6Ø6, Nobukazu Takemura, Josquin des Prez, Christian Fennesz, J.S. Bach, Kraftwerk, John Coltrane, Oval and many others. Because he doesn't understand some of the most basic principles of the software he uses, he is forced to rely on his own musical instincts, which, although at occasional odds with his computer, serve him pretty well.  * From lush and and peaceful to curious and fickle, Nathan Michel's songs blend into each other effortlessly, creating an album on par with ambient and new music works of Eno, Mouse On Mars, Steve Reich, and Christian Fennesz  * New EP and remixes upcoming in 2003
