About

My name is David Balster, I´m an artist from Düsseldorf in Germany. I do electronic music since 1995 starting with an awful keyboard and two tapedecks. my first program was rebirth and I liked it alot. (I still have an old MD with 3 nice tracks from that acid-house period of mine). Then I discovered www.buzzmachines.com where you can download a free software music studio called buzz, and that´s where it all started to get experimental.
I´m influenced by a variety of music, like psychedelic rock, classic, breakcore, metal, asian folk, anything, one cannot cutdown to a specific genre. It´s more about emotions. If a musical structure evokes something in me, it´s good, no matter, where it comes from.

    @tonfarben: But you seem to hit this instrument throughout the whole song so that high frequency is almost always there.

    what I hear is a really high frequency sound as if I suddenly had a tinnitus. It comes each time when you hit that instrument you hit in the beginning and then it slowly fades away.

    nice track, but there are so many superhigh frequencies which distract me, are they intended?
