about

LeiStra (David Leikam and Joe Straub) explores the delicate fabric of structured improvisational landscapes and atmospheric compositions.

Discovery of Systems is a collection of duet improvisational compositions recorded live at Maybeck Studios in Berkeley, CA and there are no overdubs or mixing involved.

David Leikam is a San Francisco-based composer-performer and bandleader of the electro-jazz quintet DA5 and industrial jazz unit zBug. Being born with cerebral palsy has affected his body and speech, giving him a distinct view into his creative arts/music process and being largely a self-taught multi-instrumentalist.

Joe Straub is a composer, musician and sound artist from Los Angeles, California. He creates music and sound for live performance, recorded media and various combinations of both. His work includes pieces for concert performance, installation, CD, web, animation and film. He works both as a solo artist and in collaboration with many other artists and projects. He is currently based in Berlin, Germany.
