Michael Oster (b 1967) is an artist of extremes. From beautiful and detailed nature recordings to experimental sonic butchery, noise and audio destruction, his releases cover a lot of ground. He has an extensive background in audio engineering and sound design with a career that spans over 20 years.
Currently, his experimental releases involve the use of his custom designed synthesizers and audio manipulators which he creates in Native Instruments Reaktor software. His base of operations is his laptop studio called F7 Sound and Vision. He also is the force behind the "Difficult Listening Channel" podcast which features an ever-evolving mashup of original sonic material.
