FOR DIRECTIONS & FURTHER INFORMATION:
Peter Biedermann has been playing guitar, composing and performing live since 1977, both solo and in his bands PING and White Light. PING started out as an instrumental guitar duo with Ian Smit in 1984; the idea then, as now, was to combine acoustic and electronic elements and create electroacoustic soundscapes originally developed by the likes of Robert Fripp, Brian Eno, Jon Hassell, and David Torn (who produced PING's 1987 cassette-only release). In 2000, Biedermann's focus shifted to writing, performing and recording solo guitar pieces, many incorporating a hybrid style of acoustic & electronic ambient soundscapes composed in real time. 2002 brought forth the incorporation of rhythmic elements albeit with more modern electronic processing equipment, the results documented on three recordings: White Magick
(2004), and Live—April 19, 2004
Biedermann's work moved into yet another phase with the addition of Jim Stagnitto on trumpet, flugelhorn, keyboards and laptop electronics, an ensemble which became the group White Light, who issued two recordings in 2005. It is this continuous bridging of categorical worlds, of recontextualizing the guitar into regions partially familiar yet adjunct, that provides the artistic motivation for Biedermann's continually reinvented persona.
