ABOUT ME

My name is Christoph Hörmann and I’m an independent musician from Austria.

Over the last few years I developed a diverse set of skills to write, record and produce my own music and make it accessible for everyone via internet. To put this knowledge to some good use I’m constantly trying to support others in achieving their musical goals and visions, be it as guitar teacher, composer or producer.

If you want to know more about me, have fun exploring my page.

BANDS & PROJECTS

MANDATORY

null

Melodic Death/Thrash Metal

MANDATORY is a melodic death / thrash metal band from Linz in Austria.

Between thrash influenced riff-machine Mike and progressive metal enthusiast Chris, the band creates a tight and technically proficient sound with an aggressive drive, while still leaving space for catchy guitar hooks and melodies.

Delivering a professional and entertaining live performance has always been a top priority for Mandatory which was rewarded when they won the International Live Award in 2011 – a price that approximately 1.000 bands from 6 different countries battled for.

“The technically skilled quintet combines up-to-date vocal-lines, heavy, göteborg-style riffs with a pinch of nordic darkness, creating their own individual sound, performed on a very high level” – that’s what Metal Hammer Magazine had to say about Mandatory’s first full length album “Carbon Black”.

Their 2014 effort Catharsis sets the bar even higher: neckbreaking riffs, highly intense vocals and even more shredding and complexity.


RETROMAN

null

Chiptune/Electronic

I produce and compose music with the free synthesizer “TAL Noismaker” under the synonym Retroman. My inspirations for this projekt came from old computergame-soundtracks. The result is a mixture of old-school chiptune-vibe combined with modern pad- and leadsounds.


DOT.C MEDIA

null

Audio- & videoproduction

Dot.C Media is a collective of seven musicians who love to write, produce and record music and put it in a visual context.

Most of us have backrounds in rock- and metalmusic and gathered their live- and studio experience in bands like Mandatory, Arbalest, Stoned Ponys, Slamtik or Conclave. These bands and the search for affordable quality were also the reason we started to record and produce our albums and videos by ourselves.

To give young and emerging artists access to our knowledge we started Dot.C Madia as a contact point. Our goal is to get remarkable quality even with smaller budgets and help artists to get a competitive audio and video portfolio for themselves.
