Biography

Ohrstrom’s musical career starts in a terribly bad teenager schoolband. Later, he gets to know ambitionated musicians and as a result of that collaboration they perform in a local crossover project.

The formation does first live concerts in 1997 with electronical instruments and sequencers. Fascinated by the possibilities, more complex and experimental tracks are made in the rapidly growing studio. Dominating acoustic instruments are replaced by electronics coutinously.

After the breakup of the band, Ohrstrom focuses on completly electronical music. During that period he does fairly trashy drum’n'bass tracks inspired by his surroundings.

In 2002 and 2003, Ohrstrom lives in Barcelona, Spain, working on a new live set. With local artists and musical enthusiasts, Ohrstrom improves his tracks and keeps on producing new stuff.

Back to Zürich, he gets on with his sound science, leading to regular live performances in both small underground locations and clubs starting winter 2003.

Set List

Difficult to say - depends on mood...
Usually I play for 1 to 1.5 hours, in a more clubby enviroment the tracks get stretched and the set will reach up to 2 hours.
