Check this out: 'Aldebaran' starts just like your favourite NEIL YOUNG song crossed with THE PERC MEETS THE HIDDEN GENTLEMAN before drifting into a psychedelic space haze after a few minutes... Great!

ephemeroL is a platform to break new ground for different influences and genres. Repetition and frozen chords are as important and valuable as free material or rock music. Although our music is basically guitar/bass/drums, we use minimal electronic music, free improvisation and early industrial music to create something altogether new. Our live presentations vary from free improvised chamber tunes, endless drones and pure noise to more conventional structured rock tunes. In the early 80ies, before founding the still existing industrial project SIELWOLF, Peter was, together with HEINER GOEBBELS and ALFRED HARTH a member of the band CASSIBER, which created a compound of free improvised music, punk and avantgarde. At the same time Maxim combined industrial music with 60ies elements in his band JANITORS OF LUNACY, sometimes playing improvised happenings for five hours.
In 2004 we performed at an Indian music-festival in Frankfurt which lasted for several days. Together with Indian musicians, traditional music and our own material was used as a basis for improvisation. In 2005 Peter played several live sessions with ex-CAN vocalist DAMO SUZUKI.
