Swod is the recording project of Oliver Doerell and Stephan Wöhrmann, two musicians who met in Berlin sometime in 1991. Oliver plays guitar, bass and all manner of electronics.
Stephan plays piano and drums, arranging an almost neo-classical structure within a recording that already sounds ghostly and cinematic.
Both have been composing music for dance theatre, film productions and sound installations. Oliver Doerell is part of various other projects such as Dictaphone and Raz Ohara and the odd orchestra.

SWOD represents a labour of love from two musicians experienced in the art of seductive and evocative music making. Having firstworked together producing live soundtracks to silent movies, Oliver Doerell and Stephan Wöhrmann tread a delicate board of crystalline piano cascades and the sort of subtle electronic tinkering you can barely recognise or absorb in one sitting. It’s fitting that the pair are so used to tailor-making their harmonious shards of sound to moving imagery, their music evokes a plethora of half forgotten films and life experiences offered up in glimpses in the back of your mind.
If you can imagine a sitting specially programmed by film directors likeThéo Angelopoulos or Krzysztof Kieslowski, you’ll have some idea of what to expect.
SWOD has released three albums so far.
