Dronæment is active since 1997 and is the main musical project of Marcus Obst who lives in the South area of what once was East Germany.

Marcus is also involved in the Das Rhythmische Ornament experimental drone-punk duo and runs a small label called Nauze [Muzick].

His newest Oscillator solo project had its first album out in mp3 format on the Nauze [Muzick] website.

After a few amazing tape albums he joined the Drone Records serie with the "Wassermond" 7", which was based on a collaboration with Jim De Jong, followed soon by a split LP with The Infant Cycle (Jim De Jong again....).

Since then he released some marvellous solo CD-R albums on Dachstuhl, Nauze [Muzick], Mystery Sea and Fieldmuzik. Everyone with an even small interest in Drone / Experimental music should immediately put their hands on.

An "analog drones meet muffled guitars" collaboration with french guitarist Rabbit's Sorrow (Sebastien Roux) was also released on CD by Le Cri De La Harpe.

Afe released "Yr", an experimental masterpiece, in collaboration with Blade Records and Nauze [Muzick] in September 2002. Afe also re-released his early tape "Allein... Unter Menschen" in December 2004.

Marcus has recently launched a new label called Field Muzick that combines environmental recordings, music and other medias.

His latest work, entitled "Ezoterick Muzick", was released by Afe in April 2006.
