Press Text
Anerhlod is an alternative/electronic musician and composer .

Born in Bietigheim Bissingen in January 1977, raised in Baden-Wurttemberg (West Germany),

In 2012, he began his search for a completely unique, personal language and aesthetics under the pseudonym AB IMIS, which soon changed to ANERHLOD, a composition of the
meaning of the composer’s first name combined with the meaning of his surname. The whole creative process for ANHERLOD deserves some explanation, as all his works stem
from the same core process. In fact, the thinking behind the works of ANERHLOD can be summaried as follows:
"Intuition becomes the nucleus of the creative piece, a nucleus which evolves and expands, forming new worlds to be explored and experienced. The absolutely free
approach, without constraints either of form or structure, is intended to provide the listener with an alternative, new experience based on different ways of expression . The close
relationship between freedom - concept - structure - pure randomness - programming and the infinite ways that these elements can be combined and shaped is embodied in sound
scenarios with the ONIRICO-SIDERAL (dreamlike-infinitely distant) character.

Style and influence

The constant search for new sonorities in acoustic, electronic, concrete, non-conventional structures and in continuous change, are doubtless featured among the avant-garde
genres. The influences that led to this aesthetic sound synthesis are clear and closely linked to the geography and period of its formation. Therefore, the fact that Alessandro
was born and raised in Germany at the end of the 1970s and the early 80s was a key factor in allowing him exposure to Kosmiche music (Krautrock), which in turn is directly
linked to Karlhaize Stockhausen.
His adolescence was deeply marked by classical training with almost a veneration for Mozart although his musical instinct almost always included reference to authors such as
Gerard Grisey, Karlhainze Stockhausen, Luciano Berio, Arvo Part, John Cage, Krzysztof Penderecki, etc.
In the 1990s there is no doubt that the influence of grunge (Nirvana) came into its own, while the years he spent in London marked a turning point with alternative rock
(Radiohead and Sigur Ros), along with the Italian Underground (C.S.I. and P.G.R.). He currently listens to a huge variety of music from which he draws inspiration, and is
particularly interested in the innovative work of Brian Eno and the whole spectrum of ambient and electronic music, including the more extreme fringe of this genre, such as
Dark Ambient.
He lives in Salento in southern Italy, a hypnotic-esoteric part of the world where there is a strange blend of the decadent attitudes of Eastern European countries. He has been in a
relationship for 10 years with his life partner Magdalena Siemek.

Published Works

His first compositions were written mainly for acoustic ensembles and based on the exclusive use of musical techniques from the twentieth century (dodecafonia, random,
spectralism, atonals, etc.)

April 2015 - first album C.M.C.B. released with the label MAP Edition. An audio-visual journey that traces and comments on the literary work of Jack Kerouac, "Mexico City
Blues", interspersed with social and spiritual themes, essentially a challenge to American society in the 1960s and its approach to Eastern philosophies.
October 2016 - C.M.B.C. republished by an independent artist December 2017: second album, BEADS, released by ANERHLOD has a new sound and
compositional concept. Though still tied to the first album for organic and structural approach, the themes dealt with range from death to creation, via the holocaust and ending with love.
