Info for Parallels: Shellac Reworks By Christian Löffler
With his mix of techno, ambient and acoustic music, DJ / Producer Christian Löffler takes a unique and successful space within the electronic music landscape. Truly using the full spectrum of available sounds, his music is characterized by a beautiful use of acoustic instruments, layering and alternating them into mesmerizing works, and warm, enveloping atmospheres. Christian Löffler reworks music by luminaries of the classical world as part of Deutsche Grammophon initiative The Shellac Project. Parallels album transports some of the earliest recordings ever made into the 21st century where Löffler’s iconic rich sound and fresh interpretations give them new life.
Loeffler reworks tracks by some of the greatest composers who ever lived, including Bach, Beethoven & Chopin. He steps away from well-trodden paths to create his own interpretations of classical greats, opening up a welcome dialogue between past & present. He has become internationally renowned for his strain of emotional electronic music, & in bringing these illustrious composers into his realm he's not only paying tribute to them but also re-inserting their music into contemporary discourse.
Being asked to describe his own music, Christian Löffler states that he tries to combine 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.”
Löffler started to play music by the age of 14. Living in a secluded 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 Löffler 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”, Löffler developed some strategies to use acoustic material in his music. Amongst others he samples different stringed instruments, percussion and atmospheres. He continues working with the recordings on the computer, combining, layering and alternating them.
For his debut album „A Forest“ he enriched his sound collages by co-working with singers like Gry and Mohna. An Album in the spirit of the enchanting woods of his home region.
The extraordinary capacities of this young producer have kept eyes and ears closely following the fresh talent as Löffler’s deep moving melancholic sound, is absolutely irresistible.
In 2014 the highly acclaimed „Young Alaska“ EP is setting the stage for his second studio album to be released in Winter 2014/15.
