| n f | n | t e

“| n f | n | t e” allows you to dive into the evocative world of soundscapes and meditative drones. Slow down your pace of life with these five pieces, clocked at around 30 minutes each, carefully sculptured to alter the perception of time and space.

Inspired by a 53-minute electric piano piece I recorded for Psoma Psi Phi (pspsph.bandcamp.com), I decided to record another piece with just the reverberated signal of my trusty Rhodes. This approach drastically changed the dynamic of how I play and kept me longing for the wonderful harmonics that were accumulating in the reflections of the reverb. Then I applied the same technique whilst playing on my Waldorf Blofeld. This created a similar result, but with wavetable synthesis and aftertouch added to the equation it allowed for even more expression. Now imagine all of this being stochastically automated and sequenced with a quantized transposition modulation. Fancy words for me engineering the music in such a manner that I only have to synthesize the sound, and press record and stop. Finally, I took it a step further and processed pre-recorded sequences by manipulating its duration on a granular level so that it has similar dynamic features as the live takes, but not a single note was actually played live.

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” 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.
