Löffler started to play music at the age of 14. Living in a secluded region and lacking a musical surrounding, he had to teach himself the essentials of making electronic music. For a long time he developed his own deep and moving sound, colored with a melancholic undertone – music for the soul and for the body. He recalls a variety of music styles he listened to as a child and as a teenager that were highly influential to his own development as a musician.
In 2019, he released his new album, Graal (Prologue), a gorgeous slice of electronic, ambient and techno which finds him in new place writing music and it feels fresh and new. The release follows two well-received LPs, Mare and A Forest, both on Ki-Records. It also serves as a prelude to a second companion album to be released before the end of the year.
In 2021 he released his exceptional album ‘Parallels: Shellac Reworks’ via Deutsche Grammophon. The German conceptual artist and composer reworked tracks by some of the greatest composers who ever lived, including J.S. Bach, Beethoven and Chopin. He steped away from well-trodden paths to create his own interpretations of classical greats, opening up a welcome dialogue between past and present.
Last year, we enjoyed his live set through our media platform, reworks connekt. In September 26th we welcome Christian Löffler back in Thessaloniki for a unique live concert, in the marvelous location of Kivernio at the Eastern part of the city.
