Into the deep sea of Sound...
Tigerforest is an electronic act from Germany. The Just Plain Folks awarded project has been created by electronic musician, producer and film composer Gunnar Spardel in the tradition of teutonic sound-pioneers. Inspired by nature's deepest mysteries, Gunnar Spardel (Tigerforest) creates visionary sounds which mix lush instrumentation and thick-layered synthesizers for a sound that lies somewhere between '80s dream pop and modern electronica.
There is a forest up in the arctic circle called Tigerforest. It produces more than half of the oxygen produced from trees on the planet. The forest has a very short growing cycle, just one month, and in that time it produces all of that oxygen. "I was really moved by the idea that there is a forest that seems so far away, but is having a big positive affect on the planet. Certainly music can also have such abilities in different ways. Music means much more to me than playing white and black keys together in some harmonious or disharmonious accordance and order. It's more than making impressive eclectic soundscapes or sequences with some content. Music is my life. Music is my playground of emotions and at each time the mirror of my innermost being."
