*won 'best independent electronic artist in the world' on artistdirect.com, 2000



electron love theory is the music of seattle-based songwriter/ producer jeff leisawitz. with the help of drummer moses gershbein and a bevy of studio divas led by gaetana gravelese, the theory's latest collection, colors of the galaxy, explores the love, hope, pain and sadness of the modern world. by combining dark electronic textures, soaring female vocals and inescapable melodies, electron love theory has won fans worldwide while being compared to such luminaries as dido, portishead, morcheeba, zero 7, massive attack, everything but the girl, and frou frou.

with the release of colors of the galaxy electron love theory gets back to its roots of hypnotic synth-based pop songs. tunes like the guitar heavy 'my own worst enemy' focuses inward on the desperate insecurities that haunt us all. then 'uptown' antes up a funky bassline to confront the loneliness and isolation in modern city life before 'your love is bringing me down' details the disintegration of a relationship. "i daydream about things that we could be/ but ya know, i don't know if i believe it/ we held on so tight that the future's sight was choked by fear/ but that was nowhere near the answer."

even with such dark themes permeating the disc, electron love theory shines with an innocence and purity on some of the album's best tracks. 'come a little closer' invites the listener into an ecstatic world while 'in your galaxy' believes in love without consequence. "every now and then i forget to breathe/ cuz in deep space there's only you and me/ your air is all i really need/ when we're kissin' in our galaxy."

in 2000, artistdirect.com named electron love theory 'best independent electronic artist in the world' for the music on the self-titled debut album. that disc rhythmically integrates original interviews with real people—a blind man, a heroin addict, a buddhist mystic—into long form electronic compositions. since that time the theory has landed more than 200 placements in film, tv and multimedia, (including mtv, vh1, motorola, james bond promos, hbo, scrubs, and many others), completed various remix projects, and produced a number of local seattle indie artists.

with a degree in 'creative writing with perspectives from philosophy, religion and psychology' songwriter/ producer jeff leisawitz is no stranger to the depths and shadows of the human experience. combined with years of professional listening as a music journalist and an undying love for melody and inner exploration, colors of the galaxy ignites listeners with a unique sound that stirs the soul from the very first spin.
