Leichtmann’s modern version of minimal music has strong connections to dub, ambient and club music. His solo project is called “Static” and he is a member of the bands “Groupshow” (with Jan Jelinek and Andrew Pekler) and “Denseland” (with David Moss and Hannes Strobl). Leichtmann has been working with sound archives since 2013. For his penultimate work "Nouvelles Aventures" he got a work and research scholarship of the city of Berlin in the field of new music/sound art.
