STRöHM combine experimental music (avant-garde ambient drone) with free improvisation and create imaginative sound structures from it. Novel sounds, rhythmically underlaid, expressive, dynamic, then again impulsive with romantic elements, are the musical result of the mutual interplay.

an ambient random sequence d.i.y. installation, inspired by Eno, Satie and the passage of time



Uhr / To Fade To is an experimentally experiential sound piece which questions the individual listener’s agency within the listening experience and preconceived expectations around the acts of active and passive listening. Comprised of 240 thirty-second triad sinetone drones, this album is to be downloaded and randomly shuffled in a player of one's choice. The result is a seemingly endless array of tonal possibilities, a larger-than-human-life melody full of aleatoric twists and turns.

The impetus of this piece is to dig deeper into an inquiry that Erik Satie opened with the advent of his so called "Furniture Music" and which was later expanded upon by Brian Eno's popularisation of "Ambient Music". This is piece is to be played into an open space and to be forgotten about and returned to. As each track is precisely 30 seconds long, it acts as an abstracted clock. Listeners may drift from and to the space in which they choose to listen in. As the content of this album is made up completely of sinetones, the piece is inherently relativistic and allows listeners to move through the peaks and troughs of the waves.

elaborate dark electronica from Arabia


01 Where the Auguries Lie 9:10
02 The Empty Infinite 6:29
03 The Centre Cannot Hold 5:45
04 The Qualia Problem 5:45


Written, performed and produced by Jez Mond

This is my latest release. It is a collection of tracks that I have recorded over the last two years. It is an electronic album that contains a mixture of styles, but is predominantly dark and atmospheric. I use a mixture of analogue synths, digital synths and live instruments. I also use field recordings (sometimes heavily manipulated) that I have recorded on my travels. My intention is to create an immersive sound experience with a mobile mix.

Thanks for tuning in and I hope you enjoy the trip.

A micro-interview with Jorge Gisbert Soler on his album:

• is it a concept album, with its tracks following a common thread?
Yes, my second work develops as a progression without pretensions or anything established. It follows and explores sonic territories, which are more related to the analysis and enjoyment of sound experience, than an approach strictly linked to the dance floor. In fact, I think none of the tracks can be danced, at least I wouldn’t ;)

• what do the album & track titles mean in English?
Although I am Spanish I belong to the Levante region and I speak Valencian, and the titles are not in Spanish either. Bandname and album title are an anaphora of darkness, and this album is just a dense journey though it: "Dark Shadow - Output Transition Beyond a Rough Interior".

• is your music based on improvised playing or is it more conceptual composition?
I do not consider myself too much of a musician, rather a guy who knows how to change parameters in a computer software. But the composition of my songs, the albums, even the musical project itself, are quite conceptual and methodical. Being this one of the things that give character to the album.

• were there other musicians involved?
At the moment I work only on my tracks, although I do not rule out possible collaborations. In fact, I currently have a few musician friends working on remixes of the songs from this latest album. And I find myself working on other projects that also involve more musicians, in addition to a new LP to release under this same alias.

• what equipment do you use?
Mostly I’ve always been a software guy, I’ve tried various hardware gadgets but in the end I’ve always been discarding gear. Nowadays I work with a very small and simple setup, a laptop, ableton live as my DAW, a tiny audio interface, my headphones and a pair of small midi usb controllers also, only for lives. Working with such a small equipment allows me a lot of versatility and freedom of movement, also it allows me to put the focus on the production and not on tedious days of configuration and hardware patching.
