Materiaal Series, Part 057
ORNMNTL is an offspring from the organic groove music project Ornah-Mental by Dirk Schlömer. I joined Dirk in 2018 to work on the release „Strong and Stable“ and play a few live gigs.
Dirk Schlömer is no stranger to the German music scene. Born in Cologne, he was guitarist in the german band “Ton Steine Scherben“; one of the first and most influential German language rock bands of the 1970s and early 1980s, a musical mouthpiece of a new left movement during that time and in their hometown of West Berlin in particular. Schlömer also worked closely with Rio Reiser, the front man of that same band, but who later started to work as a solo artist. Furthermore Schlömer was the Mastermind of “Das Zeichen“, a german gothic-ethno project, to name just those out of many others bands and projects worth mentioning.
When we were working on Ornah-Mental’s current release „Strong and Stable“ I had the idea create music in the same manner, but with a more playful approach, also with having potential live performances in mind.
