He first appeared with surreal sound collages and musique concrète-techniques under the moniker Aalfang Mit Pferdekopf (catching eels with a horse's head) around 2004. After releasing four albums and some EPs (on Aal, Einzeleinheit, Taalem, Mystery Sea and Drone Records) Uhlig decided to release his now much more minimalistic and serene works under a less delusive name.
“Uhlig plays a form of drone music that is highly refreshing. He creates something that is beyond the ordinary! For me Mirko Uhlig is one of the better and unfortunately lesser known drone masters of Germany.” (Vital Weekly)
"Uhlig is one of the few ones able to cut the oneiric bliss of his creations right in the moment of maximum ecstasy." (Touching Extremes)
Beside his solo work Mirko Uhlig runs the Ex Ovo label for "drone music and dulcet atmospheres", founded the Suneaters (band) (together with Tobias Fischer of tokafi magazine) and worked with several artists, such as Dronæment, Emerge (band), Rostiges Riesenrad and Balog.
