Oberlin Photo

Oberlin is the musical project of Alexander Holtz from Koblenz (Coblence), Germany. The centerpiece of his instruments is a modular eurorack synthesizer, which he often combines with guitar, piano and field-recordings. His music invites the listener to contemplate, it often is developing quite slowly, it never demands to be in a certain focus of attention, but it never tries to fulfill amy ambient-clichees in the sense of creating just an aural wallpaper either. It is musical improvisation maybe in a more subtle kind of way. Oberlin released music on labels like Handstitched*, cosmic winnetou, Thirsty Leaves, Vaagner, Hibernate, Secret Press and AOsmosis and also some tapes and downloads by himself.
