Peter Haeder’s musical proliferation spans over 30 years, many styles, six CDs and two digital releases, TV series, Film scores, multimedia collaborations and live performances to standing ovations.
A Mahayana Buddhist and authentic master of Tibetan deep-voice chanting, he alternates periods of high creativity with periods of internal work, meditation and reflection.
Peter’s music is unusual and unique, and there is a lot of it [not all] on this web-site. You find here his catalog of electronica, each release on it’s own page with a music player in the left side bar, so you can take your time and listen and download whatever you like. Be a little patient for the tracks to load in the players. They are in high definition to preserve quality and psycho-acoustic effects.
A long-time Buddhist, Phaeder has mastered deep voice singing, the esoteric one voice chord chant, now taught at just two monasteries in the world. To the amusement of the Tibetan Lamas, he has married this skill with his German electronic roots - plus Flamenco guitar and jazz. EFJ tears down the conventions of separation of the organic and the synthetic and combines it into perfection... EFJ is avantgarde Electro and takes getting used to. It is sonically rich and deep in scope and sound. There is a lot of analogue synthesis woven in and some outright bizarre sounds that simply defy description. ...
Haunebu is four track EP of hard techno based on four journeys in Alien crafts. In the late 80s Phaeder wrote a lot of music based on the Alien phenomenon. One cluster of creative output correlated with the inception of the concept for a book rooted in the Alien phenomenon. All tracks on the EP ares sonic representations of travel experiences in Alien craft, primarily Zeta Reticulli craft... While Phaeder makes no claims of having had any encounters and denies any allegations of having contact with Channels like Bashaar, there is strong evidence in these compositions to the contrary. There is a ...
Incursions [into the Bardo] is a roller-coaster ride of intense techno-trance with psycho-acoustic effects and hard beats! Triggered by the passing of his Vajra master Guru, the late Geshe Palden Tsering, on INCURSIONS Phaeder takes us on Bardo journeys - after death experiences. Not for the faint-hearted, each song is a complete incursion into the intermediate state, with all it's strangeness, spiraling, astral projections and heart-stopping intensity. Can you handle it? There is a review of it on a Japanese site called sogou.com...
2000 machines sing in unison. Machines think in unison. Fractal Mechanics drive their rhythm. Neutrino chambers are their instruments. And Nuclear Burn is their fuel... Does it really matter if you have a biological or a synthetic entity for a vehicle through reality?
It appears from this album that Drum'n'Bass and Buddhism can make easy bedfellows. This release by German born, NZ based devotee Peter Haeder (Phaeder) places his religion and musical tastes side by side with interesting results (and according to his press release, the amusement of the Buddhist lamas.) Any novelty factor aside, this is a well produced and sonically challenging record. The tastiest track is Swift Tara, where chants fuse naturally into an intense jungle beat. With an organic mix of Asian drumming and Tibetan rhythms fused together by chant-based deep throat singing, he has produced a collection of Drum'n'Bass, techno ...
