Taliesin


Taliesin is a gifted composer and multi-instrumentalist who has this special knack of picking up on those wild and ancient rhythms that kindle our age-old desire for dance and release and to combine them with his skilful instrumental implementation and his fantasy-world compositions and arrangements and to project it all into the future!

"DRUIDES AND DRAGONS"



Taliesin – the welsh bard, son of Cerridwen the mighty witch, born under magical circumstances, gifted with highest inspiration and who sung as Merlin at the courts of King Vortigern, Ambrosius and Uther has served as a source of creative power and constant exemplification of the magical side to music!

Taliesin’s name as a sound artist couldn’t have been more aptly chosen.

From early childhood on, it was the guitar that formed the basis of Taliesin’s multi-facetted musical development. In his youth, he learnt to play the synthesizer under the guidance of experienced musicians and technicians and mastered all aspects of its operation including the keyboard and percussion. It is this knowledge that has been paramount in giving Taliesin’s music its technical perfection and musical uniqueness which continually feeds his passion in the exploration of new terrain, both as an artist and a technician!

Nowadays Taliesin creates his soundscapes in his own studio with cutting edge technology. His strong affinity with Celtic mysticism and “pagan” rituals is reflected in every track that pours out from Taliesin’s enigmatic quill. This acoustic coupling of the raucous Tyrolean mountain rites with the ancient mythical world of the Celts – who happened to be early settlers in this region thousands of years ago – appeals directly to the ancient spirit residing within us.

Taliesin manages to achieve the singularly unique: That is, to take his listeners on an inner journey through to the feeling of total release and trance just through by using his sounds, harmonies and rhythms.

The soundscapes that Taliesin tempts us to enter into kindle our archaic fantasies. Visions of a time long past cross over our inner eye and are joined, at times, by the sweet torment of utmost joy and happiness.

Artist-Bio

Biography Jürgen Kern aka Taliesin


Born 1964 in Lienz, East Tyrol, Austria

Taliesin began making music as a young child, his musical journey has led him from traditional folkmusic, on through jazz and reggae all the way to rock music.
Because of his wide horizon of musical interests, he has been accompanied by a great array of musical instruments and rhythms throughout his life.
In 1988, together with Marcus Testory und Christoph Aschauer, he founded the underground rock band “A Wedding Anniversary”
1989 saw the release of their debut album on “Dancetaria Rec.” - the then well-known French independent lable based in Lille (Title: A Wedding Anniversary).

A Wedding Anniversary Spirit Fire Supermax - Remaxed Three Times Three Tales Of The Marvelous Twilight

The album made it into various underground and independent charts throughout Europe. In France, for example, the album spent a number of weeks in the Top 15 and was even made “Album of the Week” by the major national newspaper “Le Figaro”. In Switzerland, the album climbed to the top of the charts of the Independent Rock Radio Station “Couleur 3” and stayed there for a total of 4 weeks. The list goes on... On top of that, their EP “Asylum” was also released later on in 1989 and their 2nd album “The age of lies” came out a few years later in 1993.

After the band split up in late 1993, Taliesin decided to initially withdraw from the professional music business. Some time later he came across the world of analogue-digital music, a world that has fascinated him ever since.
He mastered the programming techniques for a variety of music computers, synthesizers etc. and since 1999 has been making a name for himself as “Taliesin” the composer, producer, and live performer. (1st live Psytrance act in Austria – completely analogue up until 2006)
