Bernhard Loibner http://loibner.cc
is a composer, musician and media artist from Vienna, Austria.
With his music Loibner treats various musical genres: from experimental electronic and electro-acoustic to post-rock, from audio-visual to radio art. His musical compositions are characterized by the use of computer instruments based on software he writes himself but also analog electronics and sometimes “real” instruments.
The music he creates oscillates between intricate 3-dimensional sound textures and harsh noises. His sounds often imply a pulsating moment while developing continuously reconfigured rhythmical structures beyond metrical beats. A carefully composed balance between movement and quietness is at the center of his musical aesthetics.
Olēka is the new alter ego of the already well-known Bosnia & Hercegovina-based DJ/Producer Forest People!

This moniker emphasizes the more industrial, and distorted side of techno. Recognizable by his originality and style, Olēka is the bright future of the genre.

Postcards from The Bubble Metropolis
Music is the only time travel/dimensional defiance medium we do possess. Sound waves encapsulate feelings and visions which, if crafted under a pure and selfless state of mind, are timeless and boundaryless. They are statements, like love sentences you would write to a loved person on a postcard from a travel destination away from home.
Drexciya is exactly that, and even more. A statement of love, memory, ethnic redemption through recognition and acceptance, via the raceless unity, brought about by the universal power of music.
A (afro)futuristic message, conceived in the redemption-seeking fierceness of the Motor City, created according to the Electro and Techno criteria, and ending up enhancing them.
Drexciya is the spark of light, the reminder that we should try to understand our path by going deep, and then choose it without fear, nor unnecessary compromise. That we should chase our dreams and the truth that’s inside each one of us. If we can do so, we will overcome obstacles, active and passive prejudice, ideologies.
We will be able to live our L.I.F.E. at its fullest meaning, to adapt to change and to create a fruitful environment for us and those around us.
Don’t be afraid of evolution.
