- radio airplay
The instrument I learned first was the cello, later on the piano. In my childhood and youth I took part in several orchestras and choirs. At the age of 17 I started playing in rock bands; in 1989 me and my friend Daniel ("Vocebasso" and "Liedschmied", you find him here) founded the progressive rock band "The Lynx"
(- http://www.myspace.com/thelynxmemorial - my functions: keyboards, cello, backing vocals, songwriting and arrangement). In the early 90s I became more and more enthusiastic about electronic music and the German broadcast radio show "Schwingungen" with Winfried Trenkler. With the help of my first synthesizers Kawai K1 and Korg T3 I started to compose tracks. After using the internal sequencers I discovered the possibilities of Cubase.
Beside my latest activities in the cover rock band "Silent Sound" (http://www.silent-sound.de), several projects I initiated in my function as a teacher for music in a secondary school and my newest singer- and songwriter project "WortSpiel" (de-de.facebook.com/pages/WortSpiel/158210824261019) I never stopped composing electronic music in the last 20 years.
My music is most influenced by orchestral music (classic, soundtracks), progressive rock and pop music and - of course - by electronic music. I will never forget, when I was six years old and my brother put on the record "Oxygene IV" by Jean-Michel Jarre. Another track, which gave me magic moments, was "Force Majeure" by Tangerine Dream. The year 1990 meant the final electronic wake-up call, namely in the form of Ron Boots and his great record "Dreamscape". It's one of my favorites to this day.
The themes of my music are generally the nature, journeys and landscapes, personal relations and emotions and - within these associations - often the longing for inner and outer freedom, for the breakout of boundaries and fears.
Wiesenberg: That's the maiden name of my mother (by trade a vocalist), which refers back to my roots and to the long way, my ancestors took from Salzburg (Austria) through Königsberg / Kaliningrad (Russia) to Rheda-Wiedenbrück (Germany, North Rhine Westphalia). I walked on - through Lower Saxony to Rhineland-Palatinate. Next stop: Who knows? In the end I am an expellee and a hermit - an "eremit".
