COUGHER is a local synth artist who has spent the last several years recording and performing music in the Victoria music scene. Berlin School, ambient, electro, hauntology, and kosmische musik are all deep rooted influences on Cougher’s musical explorations.
DiN Records founder, Ian Boddy has identified Cougher’s sound “as reminiscent of John Carpenter’s classic releases”. Cougher’s music nods to the classics and traditions of synthesizer music across the decades while at the same time finding new and innovative applications to tried, tested, and true sound design methods.
Ultimately, Cougher creates music that pays tribute to the synth legends that we all admire, while simultaneously exploring the possibilities of the music we might make in the future.
