Bob Ohrum is... Distant highways, crumbling factories, the lonely sound of a 2 A.M. train, and the beauty of the city at night...

I started writing music and playing Bass in an assortment of shoegaze bands in the early 90`s. As the decade progressed I became more and more drawn to experimental music and analog synthesizers. During that time I recorded my first Ambient music demos on four track cassette. In 2000 I moved to Cape Cod Massachusetts where I lived for three years. While living on the Cape I immersed myself in the natural beauty of the ocean. When I moved back to Buffalo in 2003 I had a renewed drive to record. At that time, I found a love for field recording and began to incorporate it into my music . It is my goal to make music that captures and compliments the environment around me, be it city or nature, daytime or night.

"Subliminal Listening" was written and recorded in August 2005-this album was created by capturing various field recordings, and then creating music to accompany them...Aside from reverb, these live field recordings have not been altered in any way. This results in a collection of soundscapes that are very organic in nature....

With a sound that evokes the feeling of urban decay the "Feedback" EP was written and recorded between dusk and dawn one night in June 2005-bass and a minimal amount of modified vocal tracks were the only instruments used to create these songs......

2006 brought "Rising Tides." This new collection of soundscapes reaches deeply into an emotional, personal place through a rich, Beautiful variety of field recordings and various instrumentation and vocals.....

In 2007 I wrote and recorded "Elevated" as a tribute to my may be my strongest work to date..

The "For Dan" EP was written for my cousin Dan who passed away in June of 2008 R.I.P. Dan Ill always love you man...

In June 2010 "Elevated" was released on Relaxed Machinery ... It has been remastered by Rob at Sound -o- Mat and sounds fantastic !

Buy Elevated here

"Subliminal Listening" was released on Relaxed Machinery in March 2011 !

My latest release is called "All Around Me" it was released on Relaxed Machinery in October 2011 !

It's good to be alive ...

Posted on October 6, 2012 at 2:00pm 7 Comments

On September 20th at 7:30 in the morning I was involved in a traffic accident . My mom has a broken arm and my aunt has bad swelling in her leg . Somehow I walked away without a scratch or a bruise. My Mom's car was destroyed .

Ever since I've been noticing all the small things that make being alive so great...

Live everyday like it's your last, because when you get out of bed you never know what will happen...

Life is beautiful and every freakin day is a gift…
