Lenehan was introduced to electronic music in the early 1970's. It was a piece of music
by Moussorgsky titled Pictures at an Exhibition. The performer was Japanese synthesiser
artist Isao Tomita who had electronically created a stirring rendition of this dramatic
piece using only synthesisers.
Not long afterwards, Lance purchased
his first synthesiser and began experimenting with and recording a whole new range of sounds.
He became interested in other contemporary synthesiser artists such as Frenchman Jean-Michel
Jarre and perhaps more significantly, Greek musician and composer Vangelis, who has perhaps
been his greatest influence to date.
Since the late '70s Lance has
composed and produced a wide variety of music which is largely ambient, but also incorporates
elements of traditional orchestration, jazz, and rock. His music reflects the major technological
developments in electronic music over the last 30 years.
Lance combines his computer programming skills with the latest music technology to develop
soundscapes from layers of both traditional and modern instrumentation.
for moving pictures - be it movies or documentaries - is achieved by Lance with his extensive
knowledge of film and stems from his interest in the industry and his earlier days as a
movie theatre projectionist.
In the studio Lance uses mainly Roland synthesiser technology, computer based editing and
digital recording equipment. His collection of electronic instruments includes both classic
vintage analogue and newer digital synthesisers and samplers. All music is mastered using
a hard disk recording system before being transferred to compact disc (CD).
