Bio: Peter Bayreuther, born 12.2.1955 in Minden/Westfalia in the West/North of Germany. Father Ernst teacher for the arts and pianist, Mother Gisela, studied history of the arts, viola player.
His second name stems from his ancestors, who emigrated 300 years ago from the town Bayreuth in the South of Germany, known for Bayreuther Festspiele, the festival of Richard Wagner’s music.
When Little Peter learned of German history, he decided to take the worldwide known German composers Bach, Mozart and Beethoven as role models and set a personal contribution and symbol of peace for the world.
At the age of 7 he started to learn the violin and performed as a youngster at the Mindener Stadtheater a violin concerto of Johann Sebastian Bach.
At the age of 18 he started to study music, German and history at the University of Münster and spent 18 month in England in community projects instead of military service. He finished his studies summa cum laude in 1978.
He directed a union’s choir with rock band in Münster and taught Music at the University of Oldenburg, the College for Social work in Bielefeld and the Kulturzentrum Wilde Rose, Melle where in 1984 he got to know his life partner Karin , a singer, actor, dancer and poet.
Peter and Karin developed a very fruitful artistic relationship: they wrote together about 200 songs, published 8 CDs and founded projects together like Wawaphonie, Herz zu Herz, Erotik in Lila, Erotik im Herztakt, Heart:Heart, KinderVomUniversum (children of the universe), Chakra, Szenen einer wilden Ehe (scenes of a wild marriage), 12 Kinderlieder aus der Steptanzpyramide (12 children songs from the tap dance pyramid). They appeared on TV and radio, toured all over Germany and down to Chicago, Bangkok, Hollywood and Liverpool, where Peter initiated at the Cavern Club in 2001 the European innovative music festival Lovegeist. BBC Liverpool aired their song “Castle of my Soul”.
Peter founded 1984 the E.I.S. Erstes Improvisierendes Steichorchester (First Improvising String Orchestra), 20 violins, celli and double basses with new improvisational music concepts and compositions from him like “Liebesleid” and “Lustig”. These two pieces were hits from the first time the orchestra performed them and are still played today by the E.I.S.
This unusual orchestra was enthusiastically received and more than 200 hundred concerts followed in Germany and Switzerland. Highlight of TV presence: Bio’s Bahnhof on best broadcasting slot 20.15h nationwide with the famous host Alred Biolek.
1988 founding of the music performance duo Brain&Body, Peter doing the body music: violin, singing and tap-dance, music professor Wolfgang Martin Stroh electronic beats.
1989 Peter starts to study overtone singing with Michael Vetter – nowadays he has added the Mongolian style of Hossoo to his repertoire too. He studied the principals of overtone harmonics and let them influence his compositional work.
In the nineties lots of releases of CDs:
Multidimensional Reality, Chakra Journey, Abfahrt Freihalten, Perlen vor die Säue, Castle of my Soul, Die andere Zeit: a unique style of artistic rock music with world- and Jazz elements is evolving…
