Product Information

The release of Christian Löffler’s EP Parallels is an experiment with DG’s Shellac Project – a collection of digitised material restored in a collaborative initiative with Google Arts & Culture. This project by German musician, visual artist and producer is an experimental electronica tribute to Beethoven, featuring the first single “Pastoral”.

“When listening to the recordings, I got the idea that Beethoven’s music was actually very human and accessible but became somewhat unearthly with decades of replaying and overthinking it,” Löffler explains. “I wanted to bring it back to the very basic feels.”

“We are delighted to embark on this explorative journey with Christian Löffler who brilliantly bridges a century of recording history,” says Deutsche Grammophon president Dr. Clemens Trautmann, “his sensitivity for the original work and for the artefact of a historic shellac recording combined with his boldness in creating new soundscapes make for a very exciting listening experience.”

The EP is released November 27th on DG. Listen to the first single “Pastoral”
