As part of the Viennese rave and techno scene of the 1990s, multi-instrumentalist and electronic producer Peter Zirbs has released music under several pseudonyms and on various labels. He has broken down genre boundaries over the years with the variety of his output.
Zirbs experimented with analog synthesizers in the scene's infancy, and found success with his energetic and raw productions. His electronic music collective konsorten™ earned considerable airplay across the German-speaking world, he also produced for other artists and was responsible for the score of three highly praised art films.
The circle closes in the year 2017. Two decades later Peter Zirbs finally steps into the spotlight as a solo artist, with his internationally-acclaimed experimental remix for the British avant-garde composer Christopher James Chaplin.
Over the course of the studio work for his solo
debut EP (out in early October 2017) Zirbs is now completely focused on
his musical roots. He mixes classical piano fragments with synthesizer
sounds and devotes himself to the exploration and of musical boundaries
and structures. The results are monumental, dark pieces and songs at the
interface between electronic music and avant-garde, with influences of Minimal Music.
The first instrumental teaser track 'Firmament' will
be released at the end of August, and the EP of the
same name in October 2017.
