Öspiel is the techno project of Brussels-based composer Joohoon Ha. Influenced by his practice of electroacoustic music, he has developed a musical approach based on the exploration of sound matter. His productions present a narrative in which sound design creates a dark and cathartic soundscape. Industrial rhythms are confronted with manipulated textures and sounds, creating an energy specific to the artist.
Notably influenced by sound design and field recording, Öspiel offers a techno with industrial accents, but never without a certain poetry. It is his elegance to be ambivalent, in the current that softness and power sometimes know how to communicate. A bit of geography: although French and of South Korean origin, it is in Brussels that the young producer settled to work on his first releases.
