When describing his own output, Ki Records co-founder Christian Löffler merges “all kinds of different acoustic colors” to yield a particular feeling. Living in a secluded region and lacking a musical surrounding, Löffler began teaching himself the essentials of making electronic music at the age of 14. Over time, he developed his own deep and moving sound tinged with with melancholy—music for the soul and for the body. He also works as a visual artist, and approaches production in the same mode that he takes when painting or taking photos. It’s more about telling a story than making everything accessible right from the start.
