Tobias Reber is a long time listener of the podcast that has been touching base with me about artists that he thought would be good candidates for the show. Interestingly, when I did a little research on him, it brought up a surprisingly broad range of work - from installations to prog-rock combos. You know I had to talk to him then!
If you want to see some of what I saw, you can check out his site - http://www.tobiasreber.com/cms/ - and cruise through some of the sub-site links on that page. You'll be shocked at the number of different means of expression that Tobias maintains. But it all comes from a central place, and one that I enjoyed exploring in our talks. From his work with Markus Reuter through his 'ambient percussion' pieces, we dove into both 'how' the work was done, as well as 'why' it was part of his portfolio.
I'm fascinated by people willing to take on multiple roles/identities/voices, and I found that Tobias' work had a central theme of quality that I found powerful. Listen to his work - and listen to our talk - to find out more about this incredible artist.
