Frédéric D. Oberland
Frédéric D. Oberland b. 1978 / Lives and works in Paris, France. Multi-instrumentalist musician and photographer, Frédéric D. Oberland’s work is at a crossroads of image and sound, favoring a kinesthetic approach. He articulates different modes of narration combining the raw features of the documentary form with the transfigured reality of myth and poetry, this allows him to question notions such as the sacred, the monstrous and fraternity, then return to the political news. Attentive to the pulsation of bodies, his music is willing to be itinerant, modulating and dreamy ripple, watching for points of incandescence and bursts of electricity that uncover revelations of our presence in the world, here and now, of its mysticism and its violence. Frédéric D. Oberland is the co-founder of the groups Oiseaux-Tempête, FOUDRE !, Le Réveil des Tropiques and of the NAHAL Recordings label.
