Alphatronic

Real Name:
Daniel Wihler
Profile:
Alphatronic is born in Bern, Switzerland. When he was
fifteen years old, he held for the first time in his live a
Korg MS20 synthesizer in his hands and from there on, his
heart was lost to the electronic sounds. To become a Sound
Engineer, was of course the logical thing to do.
Alphatronics music has its base in ambient electro. He
programs the sounds he uses for his music all himself and
is permanently on the search for new rhythmic structures,
that give these sounds an open and wide playground. He is
definitely not one of the fast-food producers. He is more
something like an old-school sound-searcher. The commercial
use of music interests him not the least. What he cares for
is the continuos elaboration of his specific sound. This
development can be heard throughout his releases (1998
alpha, 1999 morpin & metal bar, 1999 solitary, 2000 ep
2000, 2003 Duke, 2009 Sonic Landscapes) but also, when he
plays one of his live-gigs.
Since the eighties Alphatronic has worked with some
influential artists in the music-scene; Marco Repetto,
Bruno Spoerri, Daniel Kueffer, Tom Vedvik, Martin Tillman,
Waedi Gysi. And with performance artists like COCO, Andre
Stitt or Edy Marconi.
At the moment he has a collaboration named Tastatur with DJ
Ramax.
Finally Alphatronic is one of the rare electronic
musicians, that develops his music over the years, to find
his own language within it. One that works mainly in the
back, but still remembers to share his found pieces with
his audience.
