Komputer is a London-based electronic band, composed of Simon Leonard and David Baker. [Discogs, [http://www.discogs.com/artist/Komputer Komputer] ] They were originally signed to Mute Records in 1984 as I Start Counting [Discogs, [http://www.discogs.com/artist/I+Start+Counting I Start Counting] ] and continued with releases under the moniker Fortran 5 [Discogs, [http://www.discogs.com/artist/Fortran+5 Fortran 5] ] until the release of Komputer’s debut album, "The World of Tomorrow" in (1998).

Komputer’s sound is highly electronic, its first album is very influenced by Kraftwerk. The band takes samples from a variety of sources: from Russian cosmonauts to rubbish compactors and mobile phone ringtones.

For "Synthetik", the band’s third album, the music gradually evolved over a long period of time, tracks were tried out in live sets then discarded or reworked in the studio, maturing into a return to the more traditional electro sound of the first album, "The World Of Tomorrow", with the incorporation of a more experimental and contemporary electronica approach.
