about

Dieter Mauson nació en Leer, una pequeña ciudad en el noroeste de Alemania. En 1982 comenzó como bajista en varias bandas punk y no-wave en su ciudad natal y luego fue bajista, guitarrista y cantante en los dúos post-punk NOSTALGIE ÉTERNELLE y OPFER DER HINGABE. En 1989 fundó el dúo electronico DELTA-SLEEP-INDUCING PEPTIDE con otro amigo. En 1992 comenzó su primer proyecto ambiental en solitario llamado MAJESTIC TWELVE. En 1995, teniendo dos hijos, su vida cambió y dejó de hacer música durante casi 15 años.

En 2009 NOSTALGIE ÉTERNELLE volvió a la vida y algunos años después también se reactivaron OPFER DER HINGABE y DELTA-SLEEP-INDUCING PEPTIDE. Dieter comenzó su nuevo proyecto en solitario llamado OCCUPIED HEAD en 2011. En 2016 conoció al musico chileno Cristóbal Rawlins y comenzaron su dúo electrónico 7697 MILES. Un año despues viajó a Chile y en 2018 a Perú para grabar música y tocar conciertos allí. El mismo año Dieter y dos amigos suyos comenzaron el trio techno/post-punk/country/electro SAUERSTOFFF. Hasta ahora, OCCUPIED HEAD ha tocado conciertos en Alemania, Suiza, Países Bajos, Bélgica, Chile, Perú, Lituania, Francia y España. Después de algunos lanzamientos online, STEADY es su primer álbum físico.

Dieter Mauson was born in Leer, a small town in the north-west of Germany. In 1982 he started as a bass player in several punk and no-wave bands in his hometown and was then bass- and guitar-player and singer in the post-punk duos NOSTALGIE ÉTERNELLE and OPFER DER HINGABE. He also founded the electronic duo DELTA-SLEEP-INDUCING PEPTIDE with another friend in 1989. In 1992 he started his first ambient solo-project called MAJESTIC TWELVE. In 1995 - having two children - life changed and he stopped making music for nearly 15 years.

In 2009 NOSTALGIE ÉTERNELLE came back to life and a few years later OPFER DER HINGABE and DELTA-SLEEP-INDUCING PEPTIDE were also reactivated. Dieter started his new solo project called OCCUPIED HEAD in 2011. In 2016 he met the Chilean musician Cristóbal Rawlins and they began their electronic duo 7697 MILES. A year later Dieter traveled to Chile and in 2018 to Peru to record music and play concerts there. The same year he and two of his friends started the techno/post-punk/country/electro trio SAUERSTOFFF. So far, OCCUPIED HEAD has played concerts in Germany, Switzerland, the Netherlands, Belgium, Chile, Peru, Lithuania, France and Spain. After some online releases, STEADY is his first physical release.
