: composer and musician
and multi-instrumentalist. He studied music theory for several years
with a private tutor in England, before moving on to become a regular
musician in London’s jazz and blues nightlife. During the late
80’s and early 90’s Peter developed his blazing guitar
technique, which has often been described as world-class. From the
mid-90’s he began to compose his own music, some of which has
been released on solo CD’s.
Peter has no single
influence on his music, as he regards every sound and musical note
as an expression waiting to happen. As a composer, his music is often
difficult to categorize because he has composed and recorded such
a vast range of musical styles and blended them with his own unique
musical concepts. His self-titled solo release in 1999, showed the
world a vision of experimental daydream-like rock music with elements
of jazz and symphonic music – all of which is a far different
world to the 2001 release “Ad Libitum”, which focused
entirely on a solo electronic piano playing jazz/classical compositions
with mysterious and often dissonant undertones.
From 1999 until
the mid 2000's, he spent more than 5 years exploring the world, while
also composing, recording and releasing 10 solo albums in the US (with
a further 35 hours of music composed, but unreleased). After his 2003
release “Only This Week”, Peter decided to abandon the
electric guitar and move to mainland Europe, where he could spend
the following two years with an acoustic nylon string guitar, spending
up to 15 hours per day concentrating on new techniques and compositions.
The results of this reclusive period of development are soon to be
presented to the world in a new solo album and series of concerts.
