With his projects Saafi Brothers and Aural Float, Gabriel composed ambient, space and experimental sound scapes. With Aural Float he worked on audiovisual concepts: as a team they did the artistic supervision of SPACENIGHT, a prototype of a TV-concept, utilizing spectacular film- and documentary footage from outer space with music made on earth.

Gabriel Le Mar's Style
THE SOUND OF GABRIEL LE MAR On the floor Gabriel is playing a set with live-overdubs that always celebrate the moment in a jam from DeepTechHouse and Techno. His DJ sets are traversed by soulful and minimal nuances.
"Live i like using little mixers and other sound control tools in order to do real-time sound changes paying respect to the fact that every live situation has it´s own dynamics concerning the people, the acoustic situation in the room and of course emotional states of the people and me. I like using both: analog media like turntables and cd-players as well as digital equipment that makes it easy for me to bring the sound of my studio to and on the floor. Concerning energy and flow I love going through waves - flowing grooves, sometimes pushing and forcing, and deep soundscapes that make you dance and feel.
