Andrew Szava-Kovats Biography
Born of Hungarian immigrants in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada, Andrew is settled now in Massachusetts, where he writes and records in his home-based digital recording studio.
Andrew began experimenting with tape loops and synthesizers in 1979. And released his first EP in 1983. He now has 27 recordings released on vinyl and CD in 4 countries in Europe and the U.S. spanning 13 years. His work incorporates a range of international electronic music styles, which has been grouped and released under different band names:
Data-Bank-A - for the gothic synth pop material, this is mostly solo, but has at various times become an ensemble of 4 musicians for recording and touring. This project has recorded 12 releases for 3 labels and toured New England and Germany. The sound has been compared to Severed Heads, Fad Gadget, Gary Numan, Sisters of Mercy etc.
Dominion - for the dark, yet ethereal, ambient material, this solo project incorporates influences from Eno to Xymox. Includes 7 releases on 4 labels in the US and Europe, including one release on Metropolis Records.
Compound - for the industrial sounding material, this unique ensemble of 3 members worked individually in 2 locations hundreds of miles apart and layered contributions onto tape at their own studios. The resulting works became 3 releases on Dossier Records, Germany.
Parade of Sinners - for the loop-based material, this solo project harkens back to the roots of tape/media manipulation, while including synthetic rhythms and melodies. Originally released as cassettes on K.O. City.

True Age - simple yet sophistcated, dark yet uplifting, this duo produces rich blends of acoustic and analog and digital electronics woven into evokative improvisational electronica.
Different facets of Andrew's work has found outlets and its own audience. And by releasing work on labels in Belgium, France, Germany and Portugal, his following is international.
In addition to the contracted label releases, Andrew's work has appeared on dozens of compilations throughout the world.
Andrew has toured in the U.S. and Europe under the Data-Bank-A moniker.
In addition to writing, recording and producing all his music, Andrew has prepared three spoken word recordings to accompany his poetry chapbooks.
Andrew is free to negotiate the release of new work under his own name and any previous band names. He also retains rights to the back catalog on other labels (now out-of-print).

George Koumantzelis

A Great Album from a Great Artist and Musician!
01. DATA-BANK-A ... Andy Szava-Kovats is one my oldest and closest friends, and we have been musical collaborators together on numerous projects over the years, including: DATA-BANK-A, SEEDS OF SOUND, TRUE AGE, and LANDING IN LIBRA. For him not to be put first would be a disrespectful insult to both his friendship and his talent. He's been at this since 1983. That's Andy on synth on "The Traveling Pelican Suite" on the COSMIC PODUNK album from Aeolian Music Works. ... By the way, I should note that this is a great album from a great artist and musician! - George Koumantzelis
