Start Up Pilgrim The Secret City in Trance Home Run
Since decades the highly gifted and succesfull austrian percussionist Andi Steirer is on tour and playing in the studio with numerous projects: Ostinato, Karl Ratzer, Falco, Fritz Pauer, Ludwig Hirsch (steady band member since 1986), Rainhard Fendrich, Austria 3, Alegre Correa, Dorretta Carter, Harri Stojka, Stella Jones, Heinz von Hermann, a.m.m! On this album he “eventually” presents his own personal vision in music: A “meditation about the city” with lots of percussion, deep emotions and reaching up to ecstacy! You could experience the city as one big trance sequenz, with its repeating processes, work rhythms and rituals! The participating musicians are: Hannes Oberwalder on keyboards, Jojo Lackner on electric bass and Berni Schedelberger on congas. To do completely without drums is kind of novel. The soloist Andi Steirer (on bongos) bilds his statements over keyboard layers, without having melody or harmony at his disponal!
