Hi, my name is Ingo Vogelmann, and I create music as a composer and producer, and play music to people as a DJ. Just in case you’re here for the first time. I’m also into some other things that you can learn about here, but first things first. I’m really glad you found me, so we can connect to each other.
For me, being a musician means I can share my thoughts, feelings and inspirations with you, and hope you can understand, feel it and get inspired, too. It’s the greatest joy when I hear from people how my music affects them or inspires them to create something beautiful on their end. This is something someone said recently:
Music can have such a profound effect such that it can calm the mind and soothe the soul, I’m thankful to have discovered Ingo Vogelmann’s work, it has certainly brought me to higher levels of consciousness.
— Ed Ryan
Thing is, the world is full of music being released every day, incredible numbers. As much as the music industry itself is pretty much on a path to death — at least for musicians — music itself isn’t (yet). It’s a dense jungle that requires an enormous effort and time to find the gems. That’s why I want to assist you in discovering my music a little bit.
I’m making all kinds of music for a long time already, and it’s close to impossible (and cumbersome for both of us) to lead you through my entire work. I’ve written and produced hundreds of tracks and several albums, and I also did some work for others. From House and Techno, over Ambient and soundscapes to Rock, Classic or even Pop, music for film, advertising and TV. That’s confusing for some people, because I do not stand as an “icon” for one thing only. I get it. Sorry, but I just love music in its entirety and can’t really narrow it down to one genre. I’m an open mind in general, and you should be, too, when it comes to my music.
Let’s start with something nice to get you into it…
“The Great Escape” is my most recent album from 2014. It’s 100% electronic, and I designed all sounds on it myself (apart from the spoken parts), and it features a very long 32 minutes track at the end:
The next one is an album that I’d consider my most important work ever. It’s full of all kinds of musical styles, genres and ethnic sounds, electronic and acoustic, like real guitars, real drums, real whatever … and it’s 4 hours long. Please, approach it with an open mind, as much as possible. Both the title and its general appearance can be a bit misleading. I’m sure you’ll love the music, and when you’re an audiophile person (that likes a careful mastering with a lot of dynamics and some 30hz bass?) with a proper Hi-Fi system you’ll enjoy this for sure:
This is most of the stuff (but not all) I created between 2003 and 2013, singles, rare remixes of my tracks, and some out-takes from albums:
My personal favorite store that I like to direct fans to is Bandcamp. There’s my material that I release myself (on my own label), and I’m in full personal control over this. It’s awesome, for both of us! I sell my music directly to you, and you get it in an unmatched sound quality (all sorts of lossless, MP3, you name it), plus bonus items like videos, artwork etc.. It’s a bit as if I’d hand it over to you personally, minus the physical contact. On Bandcamp, you can listen to my music, decide if you like it, and if so, pay me directly for it. Then you get unlimited streaming access via the free Bandcamp app for Android, iOS and Sonos, plus an optional high-quality download.
Most of the stuff that I have signed to other labels, you’ll find on Beatport, iTunes and almost countless other stores on the internet. I’m sure you’ll find something from me in your preferred store.
And then I’m a DJ as well, as mentioned earlier. I play out to people as much as and wherever on the planet possible. You can have a look at my tour schedule here. When it’s empty it means I’m busy in the studio. But I really love playing live. In case you’re a promoter and want to book me, please start here. Check out my DJ sets on Soundcloud:
… or on hearthis.at, which I personally consider being the better Soundcloud.
I also run 3 very successful radio shows on FRISKY — I guess I’m well known for that — and you can check out my radio shows here (LIGHTWORKS, TIME OUT and Release Promo Hype Charts).
That shall be it for now. I’m gonna leave you with all that for while, I bet you need some time to digest all of this music, it’s a lot.
Let me know your thoughts, any kind of feedback, questions, wishes, here in the comments below this post. Or just tell me who you are, and what you’re up to! I promise, I’ll reply as quick as even possible.
Most of all: THANK YOU for your time and attention!
P.S.: If you like my music, please, consider buying it. This makes it possible for me to create new music. Also, sharing my links would be really nice. Thanks!
