Elmar Hintz is a German musician and sound engineer who began experimenting with synths in the late 1970s. He re-started recording around 1991 after dropping out of medical school. Except for a single appearance on one of the infamous em:t label compilations and a Nonplace Urban Field remix on Source Records, 8m stereo has mostly operated below the radar. We think he's an overlooked artist with an exceptional skill to produce characteristic ambient music using lo-fi equipment, 2nd hand synthesizers and tape recorders.

Recorded on 2, 4 & 8-track tapes in the early to mid 1990s by Elmar Hintz.
Thanks to everyone who provided shelter, encouragement, or discouragement.
All recordings & ℗ 8m stereo.
This compilation Forced Nostalgia, 2014.

Just downloaded. Sounds really good so far.
