Carlo Onda -
Happy release day! The brandnew album «Geister» by Carlo Onda is out now! It is available in a strictly limited Cassette edition here in our Webshop and as digital download via Bandcamp. ENJOY!

Carlo Onda is a Swiss musician/producer based in St. Gallen, with a long-standing soft spot for synths and drum machines, and frankly influenced by the Post-Punk, Minimal-Wave and Dark Wave of the 80’s. In 2019 he already released the random instrumental track «RAW» with all sounds made with a vintage ms-20 and no quantization, followed by the digital single «Autobahn». Now, «Geister» is his first album release done in collaboration with Cold Transmission.

Carlo: "Around the age of 14, I picked up my first guitar and began playing with my friends. Shortly after, I bought my first drum computer and synthesizer. That is when I started meditating on sound. Years went by before I started recording music seriously. By accident, I ran into an entire collection of trashy italo disco and new wave LP’s in a second hand store. That is what really got me into late 70’s, early 80’s wave music. Releases of the «minimal wave» label additionally helped widen my horizons.
When I finally started recording the music, I mainly used the two components I liked the most: subtractive synthesizers and drum computers. Though I like and have plenty of hardware synths, I record my tracks mostly with digital emulations of these classic synthesizers. I’m not into complicating my workflow by using authentic gear for the sake of it. Instead, I try to use whatever is convenient and gives inspiration.
My songs are my diary. Therefore I like when there is a distinct identity in the arrangement and sound. I try to not go back and change too much afterwards."
