Phaeder

Bio

Phaeder, originally from northern Germany, moved to New Zealand 23 years ago. He quickly established himself as a leading avant-garde guitarist and composer for film and television, with his outstanding sense of pop/jazz/blues/ melody and hooks. He has worked with New Zealand's top performance artists to wide acclaim, playing to standing ovations at Womad and Free Tibet.

Phaeder is a prolific multi instrumentalist, embedded in the world, dance, techno and drum & bass styles of electronic music.

He studied Performance Art with Prof. Harry Kramer at the prestigious Arts School in Kassel, Germany and played for Germany’s Cultural Minister on invitation.

Phaeder is a long-time Buddhist with a profound mastery of the esoteric one voice chord chant, now only taught at two monasteries in the world.

Over the past five years, and much to the amusement of the
Tibetan Lamas, he has married this with his German electronic roots with Flamenco and Jazz. The result is outstanding.

He fires up the world music scene, complimenting his bass tonal deep voice singing with strong layers of melodic structures and edgy Electroscapes.

On EFJ Phaeder rediscovers his love for his first instrument and injects his unique guitar styles into EFJ with surprising results.

Phaeder developed EFJ returning to his avant-garde roots.
He pushes musical expression to the limit, staying accessible and humorous.

"EFJ weaves together years of life playing and recording of exquisitely crafted Beats, Flamenco, Singing and chanting in different languages and uncompromised Electronica."

Why EFJ??
Posted: Fri Feb 9, 2007 12:02 pm

It is always a great feeling making an album. And this time around i am very excited because EFJ is not just music; it is an experience that engulfs you like an enigma! This stuff creates new neural pathways in my head every time i listen. It is most likely the extreme alien and most earthly music, it is wind and fire music. The cyborgian aspects of modern day existence etched with the fire, grace and passion of the old world, my feet in both my head the Nexus...
Yet it concentrates spiritual power and strikes my heart when i stop being an anal listener, lol. Thirty years of phaeder slipstream rolled into one big, fat number, it's intense man! Maybe it is the German in me, who demands playing on the edge, i don't know... so when you get into it, you'll hear what i mean: for me personally it is real music evolution. Tell me what you think!
