Stakhanovist of nocturnal music composition and sound designer for the last twelve years; Hol Baumann is releasing his first "physical" and highly expected album, [ Human ].
In the same vein as artists like Tipper or Trentemoeller, Hol Baumann pictures his sonic universe, melancholic and sharp, woody and urban, a stunning album conceived as an electronic ballad lulled by breakbeat influences. An artist with an innate sense of composition and haunting themes, glitchy acoustic play, mixing fragility and strength. Unique.
Rich of multiple experiences in sound design: multimedia projects (Eurasset, Acti4), Theatre play (Thérèse Desqueroux), Exhibitions (Palais des Congrès, Musée art contemporain de Lyon), Hol Baumann also released several tracks on labels like Spirit zone (Germany), Peak records (Switzerland) and Ultimae (France). His most memorable works like "Asian Girl" released on Outcaste Records and his collaboration with famous Brazilian singer Monica Nogueira on the remix of classic Brazilian anthem "Agua de Marco" from Tom Jobin, released on Claude Monnet's label SSOH Music, propelled him to the limelight of the electronic music scene.
[ Human ] was mastered by Huby Sea, Olivier Orand and Vincent Villuis at Ginger Cross Hill studio and finalized in National Opera House of Lyon.
released 21 February 2008
Written & produced by Olivier Orand.
