Meandering through the realms of ambient, soundscape, lo-fi and experimental music, »EP02« by Orion Moustache was produced using a guitar and guitar effects only. Despite the minimalistic setup, he tries to explore all its possibilities in his attempt to move away from the traditional guitar sound.
Orion Moustache about his production: »I used a four-track cassette recorder which added some beautiful tape hiss and artefacts. I enjoy such kind of random and unplanned sounds resulting from the interaction with technology when creating music. After the tape’s digitization, my friend Gen Seiichi made a subtle mastering. The cover picture was taken by myself in Japan in the mountains of Gunma prefecture.«
Berlin-based Lasse Müller aka Orion Moustache likes to draw inspiration from various musical styles and musicians. For »EP02« names like Bill Frisell and Basic Channel are important reference points. He is also a member of the dream-pop trio Burnout, Bianca and enjoys creating beats in a beat cypher group.
