I wish I could furnish you with lashings of information about Oliver Doerell and Stephan Wöhrmann, who together constitute Swod, but I appear to have accumulated their entire recorded output, since initially picking up on them in 2006, without actually discovering much about the parties involved.
All I can say is that their music marries
analogue and electronic instrumentation, is
often cinematic and always beautiful.
Sometimes it's urgent, sometimes it meanders
and sometimes it seems barely there at all.
Here, from the urgent end of their scale and
with more than a nod in the direction of Philip
Glass and Steve Reich, is 'I Am Here'.
