Anders Ilar (born December 1973) is a Swedish electronic musician and producer, based in Gothenburg.


Born in Ludvika, Ilar grew up in the little town that is surrounded by woods and lakes, and started playing the piano when he was six. However, he gradually lost interest after he started taking lessons. Instead, he became fascinated with electronic sounds and science fiction, and grew up listening to Depeche Mode, Kraftwerk and Tangerine Dream.

By the time Ilar was a teenager, he spent most of his time playing with synthesizers, sequencers and drum machines, resulting in an almost endless amount of tracks recorded on tape. Never feeling really satisfied with the quality of his productions, he decided to take a break in 1997.

After some time, Ilar was introduced to a new way of producing music — computer software. After making a few tracks, he decided to start producing again. He got in contact with the German label, Plong!, and was able to make his first official release. Since then, his output has spanned over many electronic styles — from the dubwise techno explorations for Echochord, via the blissful ambience of Everdom, through to the deeper abstractions of his pieces, and the recent darkside acid techno on DSP and Narita.

Ilar now lives in Gothenburg on the Swedish west coast.

  • The title Vidare is a pun in Swedish; "Anders ilar vidare" translates to "Anders hurries on."
  • While Wavefunction Formula was set to be released November 18, 2010, a mispress seems to have delayed the actual release.
