Also known as A. Ortmann, Andrew Lord Ortmann, Andy Of Panicsville, Lord Ortmann, Ortmann

Short biography of Andy Ortmann: Transgressive Sound/Visual/Conceptual Artist who has been making eclectic electronic experimental music since 1990. Many of these releases are renowned for the exceptional
and/or excessive packaging; (steel, plexi-glass, wood, etc.)
Early efforts yielded abrasive synthesizer and electro-acoustic recordings where the more recent albums are of higher concepts and technical execution. Among these are "Nightmania" (a series of drawings that inspired the accompanying audio CD) and "Octagonist" a 7.1 Surround Sound DVD that elevates the level of "experimental" to unparalleled heights. It should be noted that these two examples were also funded by Arts grants. Ortmann's drawings/collages have been reprinted in various international publications over the years in addition to his more familiar audio constructions.

Ortmann continues to work with his longtime collaborative noise project Panicsville in addition to O/W (Ortmann/Wiese) and more recently the synth damaged Fashion Dictator, as well as running [l=Nihilist]. Occasionally Ortmann can be seen smoking cigarettes onstage along with his Korg MS-20 supplementing long time psyche-rockers Plastic Crimewave Sound.
