My name is Torben Friedrich. I was born in Denmark in 1964. I would like to submit my track Dark Time – Part 4 to the award “Your own Way”. My Dark Time album was released in 2022.
I was nominated in this category in 2020 and I would like to give it another try again 🙂
The last years with the Covid-19 pandemic has in many ways been a dark time. The pandemic inspired me to both the title and the music. We sadly still live in a dark time because of the Russian invasion of Ukraine. Hopefully peace will win.
I started playing the piano at the age of 4. Later the piano was replaced by an organ and as a young teenager I started playing on synthesizers. I can only play by the ear.
Electronic instrumental music has always meant a lot to me. Music is my life.
I use hardware analog and digital instruments in my music. No soft synths. All my songs are recorded in real-time. Built up track by track.
I have a passion for the good old analog sounds and I’m very much inspired by artists like Jean-Michel Jarre, Space, Milkways and Klaus Schulze and many others.
Genre: Electronica, Berlin school type of electronic music.
