Gregor Tresher

Gregor Tresher (DE)

Artist - 2019
In the trend-driven universe of electronic dance music, Gregor Tresher is the rare artist who transcends such cycles. His secret? A relentless focus on melody and timbre, timeless musical elements that other producers often undervalue. Just as a painting or a photograph appears to move if one stares at it long enough, close listening to the stratified grooves and melo­dies in Tresher’s music reveals an organic universe of shifting sound. “Melody always allows you to bring something new to the music,” opines the producer. “It is where you can create so­mething real and different, whereas the beat… well, either a record grooves or it doesn’t.” Tresher’s approach to writing music eschews obvious eight-bar earworms that soon grow tiresome in favor of musical lines that repeat and intertwine in myriad patterns, unfolding to reveal their secrets as you listen. In addition, another almost imperceptible element of motion has been integrated into Gregor Tresher´s new music via the integration of vintage machines and their tendency to drift ever-so-slightly out of tune. “It adds this human touch to the music, even though it was made with machines.”
