To the previous artists advance we add now the name of one of the most important genius of the electronic music history. Aphex Twin comes to Spain since some years without him to show us his delirious laptop solo performance. Considerated as one of the most influential and important figures in the evolution of the electronic music, surrounded by a lot of legends, with a millimetric perfection on the control of the analog synthetizers and the creation of new sounds and with one of the most lively and creative minds that exists today in the electronics scene, Aphex Twin continues today creating registrations on the frontiers of the accepted rules of the music.

Besides the first name of labels as Rephlex or Warp Records, we can enjoy at L.E.V. 09 of the live performances of asturian artists in contiuous projection as It_boy, Bacanal Intruder or Fasenuova. Together with them, the video sessions of Normaa. and .tape. completes the asturian contribution to L.E.V. 09.
