“There is nothing to writing. All you do is sit down at a typewriter and bleed.”
- Ernest Hemingway
You often read that there is no recipe for good songwriting. We see that differently. Together with the participants, we embark on an individual search for creative excellence. We largely leave aside the music theory, rather facing the practical questions of the writing process:
What makes a song interesting?
Which topics are the most inspiring when it comes to good lyrical ideas?
Can I borrow musical motifs for my own purposes?
We serve a handful of artisanal ingredients for a Minestrone alla Oehl. The focus of the joint work, where we mix and season our ingredients, either alone or in small groups, relies on practical exercises. We talk about your ideas, make music together and playfully work out the songs.
Everyone who has basic instrumental and vocal skills, and isn’t afraid of going where it hurts, is welcome. Spoiler: That's where the good songs are most at home.
Our recipe can be handled like any other: the cooks interpret it, expand it, and make it
OEHL - SINCE THEIR FIRST SINGLE “NEUE WILDNIS ” IN THE BEGINNING OF 2018, THE CAREERS OF VIENNA SINGER-SONGWRITER ARIEL OEHL AND THE ICELANDIC MULTI-INSTRUMENTALIST HJÖRTUR HJÖRLEIFSSON HAVE GONE STEEPLY UPHILL. IN THEIR SONGS THE COOL-MELANCHOLIC GRACE OF GERMAN-SPEAKING TEXTS MEET AIRY-ELEGANT SYNTHIE-GROOVES. IN GERMANY, CASPER AND FETTES BROT TOOK NOTICE OF THE BAND, AND IN 2019 THEY TOURED WITH HERBERT GRÖNEMEYER. IN JANUARY THEY RELEASED THEIR DEBUT ALBUM “ÜBER NACHT”, ON GRÖNLAND RECORDS.
