Lost Tribe Sound Where to begin, Oliver Doerell is definitely in my top 5 favorite music makers of all time, his projects Dictaphone, Swod and Cummi Flu have all had a huge impact on me. I was incredibly happy to see this collection of rare tunes from his solo work come out. Organic, roughhewn, electro-acoustic music, with an almost pop-like and off-kilter sense of structure and melody. Pretty much the exact sound I wish more artists were brave enough to explore.

My life with M. an organic contact with sound where theatre and music could be perceived as a tool for the creation of a distant dream. Doerell's sonorities transpose a nostalgia for something never met or somewhere never been, an osmosis of absence and memory interrupted by scattered fragments of abstraction.

The album reveals Oliver Doerell's artistic collaboration with German-Iranian dancer and choreographer Modjgan Hashemian. All pieces are reworked compositions for theatre plays from 2008 to 2018. A wide acoustic spectrum is built throughout the merge of home-made instruments, electro-acoustic and digital means. The artist is subtly mastering sound textures, distortions, altered frequencies, voice insertions and blends reality and mysticism into his unique soundscape.

The founding member of Dictaphone/ SWOD, Oliver Doerell releases the first album under his artist name and invites the listener to contemplate and to discover another one of his artistic personas. Grab a comfortable chair and enjoy the audition.
