Today, German electronic producer and visual artist Christian Löffler shares the sublime animated video for “Like Water (feat Mohna)” via Complex, the first single off the LP “Graal (Prologue)” out 4/5 on Ki-Records.
“Like Water (feat. Mohna) is chilling and spectral electronica. As the main character gazes at the ocean and the waves’ movements, cathartic and peaceful emotions emerge. Christian’s music takes us into the comfort of solitary metaphysical wandering. The video was directed by Magnus Lenneskog and Tezo Kyungdon Lee – the founders of the award-winning Tjoff Koong Studios who’ve led the animation on Wes Anderson’s film “Isle of Dogs” and are behind numerous Gorillaz videos.
Christian’s new LP “Graal (Prologue)”, out 4/5, oscillates between melancholic ambient minimal, euphoric neo-classical techno and downtempo psychedelic, and is a reflection of Christian’s frustration of not having the mental space at the time to create music, solely focusing on visual art instead – painting, drawing. Therefore the music unfolds like a painting. Drawing from his art gave him the freedom to create without restraints, and to “turn off my brain a bit, especially thoughts about what is possible or not”, he explains
“Graal (Prologue)” follows two well-received LP’s, “Mare” (2016) and “A Forest” (2012), both released on Ki-Records.
More US tour dates to be announced.
“Graal (Prologue)” Tracklist:
