Jakob Schauer & André Kellerberg
Chimera- a) a single organism composed of cells with more than one distinct genotype. b) any mythical or fictional creature with parts taken from various animals, to describe anything composed of very disparate parts, or perceived as wildly imaginative, implausible, or dazzling.
Acclaimed sound artist Jakob Schauer, who made a name for himself in the Vienna music scene with thrilling sound installations and mesmerising concerts that explore the realm of sound in all shapes and forms, and André Kellerberg, neo-classical pianist and composer who bridges and merges different genres with a distinct and fresh indie vibe, are getting together at the crossroads of sound if you will.
Jakob Schauer on Synth and Computer and André Kellerberg on piano enter into a unique electro-acoustic dialogue to explore the echo momentum between the different sound sources and create unique soundscapes. The collaboration was established in Vienna and Prague in 2019. The artwork was specifically created for this album by widely known German artist Andreas Gärtner (www.andreasgaertner.de) to visually support the blending of analogue and digital elements to create a new unity.
