Mainly known for his chill out project "Tigerforest", Gunnar Spardel is an award winning electronic and neo-classical composer. Originally from Hamburg, Germany, but now based in New England, USA, Spardel is a creator of dreamy, minimalist soundscapes. Introduced to Jazz and Classical Music by his parents at an early age, followed by his own discovery of electronic music as a teenager, Spardel developed a keen sense for music's ability to open the mind and eyes to the world as well as providing a channel for his own emotions. As a composer Spardel is able to tap into these resources of knowledge and experience while retaining a strong personal vision and aesthetic. From the changing rhythms and chord progressions of classical music and free jazz, to the otherworldly electronic sounds of the Berlin school, he is able to weave a variety of influences through his compositions while continually engaging the listener to be part of his musical universe. Inspired by modern day minimalism and baroque like orchestrations, Simplicity in a Complex World (his debut record) is a meditation on the complexities of the modern way of life. From the countless teenage hours spent listening to jazz and classical music in his bedroom, or wondering around the harbor of his hometown with electronic music taped from the radio coming through his Walkman, music has become the playground for Spardel's emotions. It is the perfect company and the perfect soundtrack.
