ophed comes from Quebec, Canada and he is a composer influenced by various genres of music, ranging between 20th century classical composers to contemporary popular popular dance styles, or from south American rhythmic to the simple complexity of polyphonic African music and the tribal dance of Indonesia. He seeks a perpetual fluid/motion element as he always tries to build a consistent shape out of a fluid, a never stopping energy. He composes for about 20 years and has various works in visual art and experimentation. Conceptual art is just a side of his personality, though. Basically a minimalist, he uses random set patterns, reverse audio, spoken samples, detune, distortion, and explores poly-rhythmic and polyphonic soundscapes. Ophed considers of the reversed techniques as his signature in his work. For him, music is a language therefore he gives priority to the message he wants to communicate.
'Still Mobility' is his first release for Etched Traumas.
