Falling through the Earth is the much awaited debut album from Stockholm based musician and producer Fredrik Ohr. Fredrik has a long background in classical piano and as a song writer, and that is highly evident in the subtle complexity underlying his music. Fredrik's physical and intellectual journeys through Asia and Buddhism are also very well felt in his music. Falling through the Earth offers a wonderful dreamy and fresh combination of North European atmospheres and textures interlaced with Asian influences, all dipped in 70s psychedelic delicate feel. Fredrik's music has special warmth of instrumental and vocal work springing forth from sophisticated layers of electronic sounds, glitches and breaks creating an enchanting combination. Aleph Zero invites you to take part in this wonderful musical journey.
