Ingar Zach and Miguel Angel Tolosa's debut album Loner is a result a mutual admiration developed over many years of working together. The duo has been collecting material since 2005, and with a common fascination with electronics, field recordings, and acoustic percussion, they decided to start working toward an album with the material they had at hand. The result is an original electroacoustic album in which the symbiosis of many sound sources is heard as one complex organism. Ingar Zach (b. 1971) is one of the leading percussionists and improvisers in Norway. He is known for dynamic and energetic playing and the wide range of his sounds. Now living in Madrid, he concentrates on his solo work and his regular ensembles. He has been dedicated to experimental music and folk music since 2010 and is now touring and recording with his regular ensembles in Europe, Canada, the US, South America, and Asia. He founded Sofa with guitarist Ivar Grydeland in May 2000 and Sofa sub-label Sillón in 2005. Miguel Angel Tolosa (b. 1969) is a composer based in Madrid and Bonn. He studied musical composition with Antoine Beuger in Haan, Germany, and electroacoustic music with Jean-Claude Risset and Eduardo Polonio in Madrid. He has also studied sound engineering and worked as an engineer and producer for many artists and labels. His electroacoustic works have been released on labels around the world, including Winds Measure Recordings (US), Non Visual Objects (Austria), Twenty Hertz (UK), Drone Records (Germany), and Mystery Sea (Belgium). His scores have been premiered by internationally acclaimed performers like Alessandra Rombolá (flute), John McAlpine (piano), Markus Kaiser (cello), Burkhard Schlothauer (violin), Leo Svirsky (piano), and Trio Arbós. He has also shared events with the Germany-based international collective of composers Wandelweiser.
