Best known as the keyboard wizard of the venerable Hungarian rock band OMEGA, the solo work of BenkΕ‘ Lazslo is by comparison virtually unknown beyond the confines of Eastern Europe. A curious offering of keyboard based electronic music, it can be likened at times to some of TANGERINE DREAM`s mid-seventies material such as Rubycon or Ricochet albeit with a more light-hearted, zany touch much more along the lines of KRAFTWERK minus the vocals or even some of VANGELIS` seventies work.He released two separate albums as Lexikon I & II in 1982 and 1984 respectively these were Omega keyboardist Laszlo Benko`s first attempts at solo work, the first of which coincided with the release of Omega`s 11th studio album, Omega XI. Incorporating the computer technology Omega were dabbling in at the time Benko recorded these two highly experimental electronic keyboard albums which were way out there and sound just as futuristic as they did back ion the early eighties. The Lexikon concept was simply to use words arranged alphabetically as titles for a series of minimilistic electronic keyboard pieces which didn`t necessarily have anything to do with one another whose lengths clocked in at an average of 3 minutes. Although many of the tracks have the potential for extension they remain short and sweet and create many moods from numerous sources of influence from Kraftwerk to earlier Tangerine Dream and others.Utilizing contemporary state-of-the-art keyboard products from Roland, KORG and Yamaha as well as drum computers, all kinds of quirky musical images and effects are created here.
He plays: Piano sythesizer, Organ, Roland SH 1000, Roland drum-computer, Roland Jupiter 4, KORG Polysix, KORG mono/poly, Yamaha CS 70M, ARP Omni, Mini Moog, PPG Wave 2.2, Emulator
