EAST LANSING, Mich., April 22, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Lee Abramson (http://leeabramson.com/) continues to defy all odds and inspire those around him with his limitless passion and creativity. Using just one finger, a touchpad and music notation software, he produces genre-crossing electronic music that never fails to surprise. His latest album, "Safety & Conversion," reveals Abramson at the height of his craft.
Reviewing the new album, professional critic Matthew Forss shared the following praise: "Lee Abramson astounds listeners with the ability to create moving and inspiring pieces of music using only one finger and a palette of electronic and adaptive technologies. Most of the songs are inventive, different and memorable."
Abramson creates his unique soundscapes with the help of cutting-edge adaptive technology and audio production software like Apple's Logic Pro. Assistivare KeyStrokes, ModelTalker, a voice synthesizing tool for those with speech difficulties, has enabled the artist to add his own vocals to many recent compositions, faster, with longer notes, and with pitches than humanly possible.
"Safety & Conversion" sees Abramson take advantage of all of Logic Pro X's new features, namely the Drummer and Arpeggiator. These tools enable him to craft rich, melodic and upbeat sounds from basic inputs. Forss added: "Fans of Tangerine Dream, contemporary instrumental, chip-tune music, electronica and adaptive music technologies with a dash of dance will love ['Safety & Conversion']."
Much of the source material for the new album comes from Abramson's own library of unused midi files, some of them a decade old. The current version of Logic Pro has made it possible to breathe new life into these files, which were otherwise merely gathering digital dust.
Each of Abramson's ten albums incorporates a new and diverse assortment of genres and styles, all blending together to evoke new sensations in the listener. "Safety & Conversion," as Forss observes, suggests a sports theme – the arrangements hum with energy and motion. In addition to his strictly creative endeavors, Abramson also has an interest in compositions for movies and video games, two arenas where experimental electronic music is always in demand.
