Olivier Orand is an electronic / IDM producer whose debut album, Human,made quite an impact when it was originally released in 2008 under themonicker Hol Baumann. From 2017 the French soundscaper decided toproduce music under his own name, and in 2019 Sidereal took care ofHuman re-release on CD and 2LP.Mostly influenced by the early electronic UK scene, Olivier Orand?s music,mixing strength and sensitiveness are focused on feelings and pictorialconnections. After his debut album, Orand pushed his expression throughhis latest sound explorations, based on ?unstructured? vocals and sharpersound designs. All this flowed into the producer?s long-awaited sophomorealbum, H+.?I created H+ with an ill-defined, oppressive feeling, like a drama playingout. Without a script, or anything predetermined, it turned out more like afeeling, a bad dream that you barely remember. This album, from my pointof view, tells a contemporary story, or maybe set in the near future. It?s ahuman story that will probably end badly, filled with dramatic tension.
