Dirk Geiger was born in 1975 in Tübingen Germany. Even in his younger years he was involved in music. At the age of 15, Dirk took up DJing and within a few years began to produce his own music and formed the band Kraftmaschine which he still takes an active part in today. In 2002, he formed the music label Raumklang Music, releasing works from such artists as Hotaru Bay, Klangstabil, Defekt, Schwarzer Engel, and his own debut album ‘Dondukov 15‘. For the past few years Dirk Geiger has been working on a self titled solo project in which he mainly produces music that could fall into the genres of IDM, Glitch, and Ambient.
Dirk Geiger now joins the Tympanik family for his second full-length album titled ‘Autumn Fields‘, a combination of glitch and IDM elements marked by ambient melodies and drones. Each song contains recorded sounds from the artist’s environment that gives each piece its own individual feel and ultimately allows the album as a whole to tell its story. Dirk describes ‘Autumn Fields‘ as like an Evergreen tree: strong, majestic, and everlasting; a musical portrait of his surroundings and a personal interpretation of the world he lives in.
Dirk Geiger‘s new album ‘Autumn Fields‘ is available now from Tympanik Audio.
Available now is the long-awaited Dirk Geiger remix collection ‘Second Life‘ featuring excellent renditions of songs from ‘Autumn Fields‘ by Tapage, Midimode, SE, Hotaru Bay, Subheim, Autoclav1.1, Pleq, Anklebiter, Candle Nine, Ahnst Anders, and many more. 14 tracks in all. Available as a free digital download.
2012 saw the release of Dirk Geiger’s third album titled ‘Elf Morgen‘. Where ‘Autumn Fields‘ exhibited the more experimental side of Geiger’s vision, ‘Elf Morgen‘ proves to be a more accessible outing, offering the listener nine gorgeous new songs that flow effortlessly with subtle grace and intelligent design. Features a collaboration with Erode and remixes by Tapage and Anklebiter.
