Oval   

Oval is one of the most innovative and renowned projects in the field of electronic music. Markus Popp as the head, administrator and representative of Oval launches innovative music and blueprints for another form of music since 1995. This led to corporations with labels like Thrill Jockey or Mille Plateaux and musicians like Christophe Charles, Jim O´ Rourke or Jan St. Werner (as Microstoria) as well as to the soundtracks for an Armani-commercial, the fashion shows of Prada and the new Dogma-Movie directed by Harmony Kareem.
Oval music is about media, aesthetic presence and organized sound, composed out of the remnants of both music and musicality. Oval are interested in providing insight into the contemporary digital audio workspace components. While originating as more of a by product of theory and theoritical demonstration, Oval's music is a rich textural and often melodic soundtrack created out of cold electronic tones. In commenting on digital technology, Oval uses their own digital programs as well as physical manipulations of disc to expose the process and the equipment. For example, creating a rhythm track out of a looped skip in a CD. Oval performances are in the form of sound installations. They have had several in Germany and London at places like the Art Cologne and Sound works 3. Oval is sponsored by the Goethe Institute, who have helped fund many of their installations. Oval's ovalprocess/ovelcommers projects won an award of distinction in digital musics at the Ars Electronica festival in 2000 in Linz, Austria.
As with Microstoria, Oval music, while a by product of their comment on digital technology, is enjoyable without the knowledge of it's origins because it is a rich melodic soundtrack.
