"O.S.T. is the guise of the prolific San Francisco based producer Chris Douglas. He reportedly has over 500 tracks awaiting release but, so far, has only released a handful of material (under his O.S.T. and Rook Valard guises) on a number of labels including Worm Interface, Plug Research, Reflective, Switch, Qlipothic, Phthalo, Emanate, XLr8R, Polyrhythmic, and Dial. At an early age Chris found himself under the mentorship of Spacetime Continuum's Jonah Sharpe, where he honed his production skills while Jonah introduced him to the best sounds in techno and electronica from around the world. From there Chris used that musical knowledge combined with his deep-rooted and often troubled emotions to produce music that walks the fine line of intricate melodic complexity and dark chasmic chaos- music where, at any given time, you don't know whether to be engulfed by its dark depths or overwhelmed by its vast dissonance. Contained in O.S.T. are bits of jazz, drum & bass, dark ambient, and a healthy dose of experimental sounds. But as soon as you recognize a style or sound, the track has evolved in another unexpected direction. Nothing compares to the sound of O.S.T., but maybe if you imagined a collaboration of artists like Freeform, Lustmord, Low Res/Crank, Coil, Phthalocyanine, Bisk, & SAW II-era Aphex Twin."
