Ewald Kegel

Music has been a lifelong passion for Ewald. As a young boy he remembers hearing all these great music from Brazil (thanks to his dad), Gershwin’s “Rhapsody in Blue”, the musical “Hair” and the great albums by The Beatles. After hearing Paul McCartney’s first solo album, Mike Oldfield’s “Tubular Bells” and the early 70s albums from Stevie Wonder (“Where I’m Coming From”, “Innervisions”) triggered him to think about the possibilities of a musician working as if he was a painter.

Instead of performing in a band, recording music by yourself: layer after layer, playing all instruments by yourself. Ewald also has a great interest in synthesizers, He owned quite a few of them over the years. The first one being a Korg MS-20, a synthesiser that recently was brought back in the studio, through the re-issue by Korg.

Since the 80s and 90s he became very much involved in creating music for audiovisual productions and recording live performances, establishing in 2000 a company (Cone Music) to handle these projects.

In the 00s and 10a he extended his focus to own music projects that initially were available on CD and in recent years as digital downloads through stores like iTunes and Amazon. Ewald also maintains an active Soundcloud profile, showing off outtakes, experimental stuff and classic songs.
