LIFECUTTER is an electronic / techno / experimental live act with dark ambient vibe.

LIFECUTTER likes synths, effect pedals, distortion, different types of heavy music and makes music because he has to.

LIFECUTTER is a moniker name for Domen Ucakar. The man behind the electronic adventure in front of you is far from being a newcomer to musical explorations. He travelled that road playing a bass guitar with a number of local hardcore punk bands, indie rock derivatives found their footing in Icarus Down, while the songwriting production of electro-pop sensibilities was explored in the Neon Spektra project. Versatility here is apparent, as shown in his collaboration with a longtime friend Neven M. Agalma in the still very much kicking and screaming noise duo Ontervjabbit. It is the exploration of various strands of noise in the latter, combined with his devouring of the Warp Records sound in the 1990s, that is seemingly the most obvious influence him.

LIFECUTTER’s music is a conscious effort to put aside and avoid the customary and well-established track structures, especially those usually used in songwriting. He uses different types of sound synthesis and an array of stomp boxes to make his music. He derives from a noise scene and takes that mentality into his electronic music to make his palette of dark atmospheric tension packed energy bomb that dilutes the border between analog and digital produced sounds and can find its place in clubs or festival grounds. It can pulsate, rhythmically break or it can take you on a filmic journey.
