Description

When asked to describe his own music, Christian Loeffler states that he tries to com- bine melancholy with euphoria. “All my music is connected by a gloomy spirit, which is minted by a warm sincerity. I try to merge all kinds of different acoustic colors to obtain this feeling in my music.” Loeffler started to play music by the age of 14. Living in a se- cluded region, lacking a musical surrounding, he had to teach himself the essentials of making electronic music. Before long he developed his own deep and moving sound, colored with a melancholic undertone- Music for the soul & for the body. He recalls a variety of music styles he listened to as a child and teenager that were highly influential to his own development as a musician.

Due to the fact that Loeffler is also working as a visual artist, he’s following the same approach when making music that he’s following when painting or taking photos. It is more about telling a story than making everything accessible right from the start. In the course of the production of EP’s like “Heights”, “Raise” and “Aspen”, Loeffler devel- oped some strategies to use acoustic material and singing in his music. Amongst oth- ers he samples different stringed instruments, percussion and atmospheres. He con- tinues working with the recordings on the computer, combining, layering and alternat- ing them.

Loeffler’s debut album released this year, A Forest, on his own Ki Records which he founded back in 2009. Late last year, Loefller told Alpha-ville that his intention with the album was to demonstrate that "techno and house can offer more than just the incen- tive to dance." Aptly described by Resident Advisor as ‘electronic folk music, telling and re-telling stories that feel much older than they really are, and that compel you to pay the closest attention to every click, scrape and thud it contains. A Forest truly is an exceptional piece of work, and one that will surely stand the test of time.’ The extraor- dinary capacities of this young producer have kept eyes and ears closely following his fresh talent, as Loeffler’s deep moving melancholic sound, is absolutely irresistible.
