Biography


GERALD PETER is a passionate viennese keyboardist, seaboard player, producer, composer and technology enthusiast. In 2017 he was on tour with Cirque du Soleil – VOLTA as a show band keyboardist. In 2015 and 2016 he has been a ROLI seaboard product specialist and demonstrator. He has also previously released albums with his bands 'Circle of Illusion' and 'Inspirational Corner' and his solo project 'The Gerald Peter Project'.

Gerald Peter had not studied music at a conservatory, instead, he attented private lessons from various classical and jazz pianists for several years starting at the age of 10. In his early 20s, he collected a lot of local pop-, funk-, rock- and jazz-band experience as a keyboardist. He also attended a variety of music workshops including Berklee’s Umbria Jazz Clinics and Hollywood Music Workshop in Vienna, with Harry Potter soundtrack orchestrator Conrad Pope. Gerald is enthusiastic about technology and computer graphics and holds a Masters Degree in Multimedia and Software Development.

He raised public awareness in the progressive rock scene back in 2013 with the concept album 'Jeremias - Foreshadow of Forgotten Realms' by his 8-piece band 'Circle of Illusion'. On this album, he played keyboards, composed and produced the music. The composition he submitted for the 2014 international ‘CINE Film Scoring Competition’ was ranked in the top 12. In 2015, he released his debut album 'Chameleon Lab Explosion' along with his 4-piece band 'Inspirational Corner', in which they experimented with the fusion of several styles like jazz, funk, pop, prog rock and electronic elements. In 2016, he performed seaboard demonstrations for ROLI in over 8 countries, e.g. at the NAMM show in the US, at the Musikmesse and SuperBooth in Germany, and at many other workshops and exhibitions. In 2017 he started touring with the Cirque Du Soleil show 'VOLTA'.

In 2017 he also released his latest EP 'Incremental Changes - Pt. 1', which is the first of a trilogy where he combines all his passions, not only composing, producing and performing music, but creating the video and MIDI reactive visuals that respond to all notes being played. His latest single 'Enigma' was released in June 2019 and is also featured on his upcoming album 'Incremental Changes - Part 2' featuring award winning soundtrack vocalist Julie Elven and Aaron Thier on drums. In 2019 he was performing live with 'The Gerald Peter Project' and special guest Camille Bigeaut on drums at the NAMM show in California.
