HR Giger is a Swiss painter and sculptor. He intertwines biological and mechanical elements in his work resulting in a “biomechanical” theme.

He won an Oscar for his design work on the movie Alien. Much of his work has a surreal, nightmarish feel to it, but Soul in the Machine is more influenced less by the fright aspect and more by his biomechanical vision. The traditional means of presenting electronic music is so mechanical, we are trying to add a more human feel to it visually while sticking to the roots of its aural intent.
