Recently I was asked to record a podcast for the Lifecrushed mix series. It turned out in a 77 minute mix of exclusively Ohrwert material featuring some of my latest releases, as well as releases of the past few years.
A constant thumping, Ohrwert’s mix summons a thick, nebulous fog – the snares and high-hats serving as brief glimmers of lucidness. It’s an hour of deep rumination, with a consistent theme and ambience making time hurtle by. A set to help you mull something over.https://soundcloud.com/lifecrushedblog/lcm067-ohrwert
A set of three intrinsic hardware sessions. Though melodically structured, they pack punchy bass lines and have analog drums to match.
“Welcome to a new reality. Things have turned around for humanity. In a bad way. Now the clones are the ones in power and searching for the last hideouts of human survivors in order to exterminate them for good. With the exception of only a few, musically talented specimens, whom the clones want to keep alive so they can produce and play music for their listening pleasure. Lets see how this is going to end. This is chapter 10 out of 12. Not much time left for the grand final.”

In retrospect, “Kaaresta” has been a creative arc between two houses. Recording sounds in my studio in one house, editing them on my laptop in my girlfriend’s house. The result is a fine weave of electro and idm, braided with tight drum patterns and interlacing melodic structures.
Out now: “The Clock Of Dreams”, a collaborative album with the wonderful Network 23 from the UK. Three analog sequential frameworks I recorded, filled in by Alan and Simon with an eclectic range of elements, including guitar, samples, loops, and VSTi’s.
Audionautic Research Program was conceptualized in 2008 as a placeholder for experimental space music. The cosmic aspect has carried over, but eleven years later its emphasis lies on long-form live recordings, centered around complex sequential patterns in the vein of the Berlin-school of electronic music.
“Technologue” is a selection of playful tracks I recorded between September and December of 2013. They are by no means dub excursions, but do share a similar array of analog and digital technology. Same ingredients, different recipe.
Every sound on this EP has been sourced from a pair of Moog Mother-32s, some of the melodic structures were generated using their internal sequencers, or in conjunction with the Koma Komplex Sequencer. Processing included, but was not limited to, granular re-synthesis and aleatoric composition.
Out now: “Grenzwellen Drei”, a massive compilation with a boggling 55 tracks featuring artists like Klaus Schulze, Tangerine Dream, Ian Boddy, Hecq, and myself amongst many more. All proceeds will be used for the production of the Grenzwellen radio show, presented by Ecki Stieg and broadcasted on Radio Hannover.
