Guitar, vocals, 100% live loops and more…

I want to update this about page more regularly now. Inform about my most recent acitivities.
Right now I am working on three different projects. Most concrete is “HIESIG. NARATIVE VOM ÜBERLEBEN” wich is a great joy as I can work with old friends and new artists alike. I am producing radio jingles, and many musical miniatures connected to certain animals and scenes in the upcoming memo park.

Next is “God is band” which will be a theater project with lots of music with the fabulous Donna and rosa Braber and Devi Saha.

And new KMET solo songs are in the works. I am experimenting lots with different drum sounds, a very reduced and slower appearance of the songs. The lyrics have grown to be more in associative phantasize land, a bit more abstract.

a kind of CV of my self:
I had an early introduction into music. After playing the flute and clarinette I soon made contact with the six strings that kid of changed my life till today. I had happily found my now ever expanding mission in the fields of music.

Today I work as a composer, performer and singer for my solo, different bands, lots of theater, many redisplays and some filmproductions out of my studio in Vienna, Austria. A good portion of luck and maybe my open approach to all styles of music, my voice and new ways of combining songs with live recorded loops has made it possible to take part in different festivals, play in many countries and to be part of many collaborations.

 

I enjoy to combine different techniques that has grown over the years with a friendly restraint in my composing, guitar playing and singing. Together with the joyful force of improvisation I love to play and create new handmade and often very acoustic music.

I released my first solo record “electric songs” in 2007, followed by “shoot me” in 2011. Inbetween I wrote music for various theater and film productions, Ö1 redisplays,  released two albums with lokai on Thrill Jockey and another one with superlooper.

I am very fortunate to collaborate and tour with the likes of Peter Herbert, Wolfgang Mitterer, Martin Brandlmayr, Fatima Spar & the freedom fries and many others.

The newest solo album KMET smiling eye was released with a sold out live show at the Radiokulturhauscafe Vienna !  For live dates please visit KMET concerts
