Premiere: Moritz von Oswald – Luminoso

3 Minute Read

Collaborating with a 16-voice choir Von Oswald delves into the interplay between the human voice and electronic synthesis.

In the realm of Moritz Van Oswald’s delight,
Luminoso at Tresor, a surreal flight,
Twinkling stars in the techno night,
Where beats and dreams take their curious height.

Electronic wizard, with a hat so tall,
His tunes enchant, and the walls do crawl,
Through the dancefloor, we heed the call,
Luminoso’s magic, we surrender to all.

In the land of nonsense, we find our way,
Where melodies and rhythms start to sway,
Moritz Van Oswald leads the play,
In Luminoso’s world, we’ll forever stay.


Moritz von Oswald’s album “Silencio” due out on Tresor Records, November 10th, 2023, is an exploration of the differences and similarities between human and artificial sound.

Collaborating with a 16-voice choir he delves into the space between these sounds, drawing inspiration from composers like Edgard Varèse, György Ligeti, and Iannis Xenakis. Combining elements of repetition and reduction, reminiscent of techno and minimalism it showcases the interplay between the human voice and electronic synthesis.

The compositions for “Silencio” were created using classic synthesizers in von Oswald’s Berlin studio and then transcribed for the choir by Finnish composer Jarkko Riihimäki.
