Reduct revival

Ten years after the Reduct series was launched as an audio blog (ohrwert.blogspot.com), the series is continuing on Bandcamp. Since “Tenth”, the closing album of Reduct 1 to 9, many releases have seen the light of day through different labels and formats all over the world. Now it is time to go back to the original format, in 24bit/48kHz quality.

“Eleventh Reduct” is the remnant of a series of tracks I have produced in 2015. Though never released as a whole, the other tracks have found a home on different labels. “Ordior” was released on Grounded In Humanity’s “DNA Sequence Vol. 2” compilation CD, and “Blavus” and Fidelis” have recently been released on vinyl on Grad_u’s label Greyscale, including remixes of “Blavus” from XDB and Aleksandr himself (scale-limited.bandcamp.com/album/fidelis-blavus).

Soundwise, things have changed over the years. Albums like “Intueri” are a showcase of a new direction. A direction that resulted from club-based live performances, which can hold its ground in the deep end, but is obviously dance-oriented. “Eleventh Reduct” is no exception to that sound, a signature Ohrwert dub flavor with more substance and solid drum grooves.

Out now: The Ambex Project

The Ambex Project is based on ambient experiments using field recordings, various analog synthesizers and sequencers, and a combination of analog and digital signal processing. It alternates between a fine weave of rhythmic elements and ambient soundscapes.

Processed and recorded at Infraklang, March 2013 – November 2016.

Music, photography and design by Ohrwert.

DRON

“DRON” is a continuous dark ambient mix using parts of the unreleased “DRON + RYTM” project.

Original parts processed and recorded at Infraklang, Augustus 2015. Mixed at SiO2, October 2016.

The Ambex Project

After years of separating my ambient and dub techno output, I am trying to close the gap between the two with my latest project: “Ambex”.  Ambex is based on ambient experiments using field recordings, various analog synthesizers and sequencers, and a combination of analog and digital signal processing.

I have uploaded a track to Soundcloud to give you a glimpse of what you can expect:

Local Traffic LT001

Melbourne based Local Traffic will release its first vinyl, and will be a three track EP by Ohrwert. The release is scheduled for September 12, and will be distributed by Juno.
