Olaf Hund, the Franco-German composer / producer and representative of the “anti-French Touch” movement, has established himself in the electronic music scene since the late ‘90s. His multi- disciplinary performances and mastery of multiple instruments brought him to the fore in 1999 as a pioneer of hybrid and unclassifiable musical styles.
He created his own independent record label, Musiques Hybrides and Free Complex Collective, producing many artists (Alexis HK, Louise Vertivo, JB Wizz, Black Landford, Nicolas Police…). He has composed for the contemporary circus (Philippe Decouflé), for films (Laurent Hart, Fabianny Deschamps…), for haute-couture (Jean-Paul Gaultier) and has collaborated with artists such as Peaches, Mocky, Gonzales, Schneider TM, Léonard de Léonard, Taraf de Haidouk, Diane Tell and Tony Allen.
A multi-talented artist, Hund is working on a number of new musical projects (Haute Couture Populaire, the Dance Hole) and also in post-production and film music.
While organising next year’s 20 anniversary of his label (which will include the re-release of existing catalogues and also the release of unpublished works) he has opened Total Recall Studios, a mixing and post-production studio in the Paris. (www.facebook.com/TotalRecallStudios).
With the original film soundtrack from New Territories, directed by Fabianny Deschamps, he has given us a stunning musical score that seamless blends ambient noise and classical orchestration.
