Lane Arndt: A Thumbnail Portrait of a Musician
AKA coeur de lane

He began his journey in music as a young teen-aged guitar
player and followed his muse through college, undergraduate and graduate
prostrations in Performance and Music Theory.
In the 11.5 years since leaving the hallowed halls of academia, he has
gestated and disseminated a approach to musical performance,
recording and pedagogy that is at once entirely personal and wholly
Resistant to the scholarly task of definition through categorization,
Lane Arndt's creative output must be taken for what it is: equal parts
experimental ethos and structural pathos within a framework of tones
and frequencies, a body of work that leaves none wanting for anything
more than a hint of identity in the futile search for unity of form and
function; the postmodern anti-form of openness.

As a guitar player, lane arndt trades in a type of fluent free associations, at times navigating the slippery slope of the outside/straight-ahead callosum. Functioning at erratic intervals under the
pseudonyms ‘the Specialest’ and ‘cUPS’, and now 'coeur de lane', all levels of sonic disparity are
juxtaposed in his abstract experimental, yet ambient approach to songs electronics, acoustics and improvisation.
As a producer he aims to bring his contemporary ethos to the table under the auspices of his pet admonition: 'There's never a good
reason to not be cutting edge'. In the service of this conviction, electronics meet nature, the organic meshes with the synthetic, the structured hangs out at the water cooler with the improvised. And
through it all a sound emerges that is identifiable in it's parts for what it is but is in many ways simultaneously un-categorizable.
