Gandalf演奏多种多样的乐器(声学吉他与电吉他、锡塔尔琴、萨斯、Charango、布祖基琴、Balaphon、钢琴、电子合成器和脉冲采样键盘，以及各种打击乐器)，混合了电子和天空的声音，并将民族元素编入了交响乐结构中以创造其明显而独特的风格。他与国际上的艺术家进行了合作，包括过去的Genesis吉他演奏家Steve Hackett，突尼斯歌手兼乌得琴演奏者Dhafer Yossef，还有他在巴西的一次钢琴巡回演出上遇到的英国大提琴演奏家兼歌手Emily Burridge a.k.a.White Horse。Gandalf也为剧场和电影作曲。
As you listen to Gandalf's music, you know exactly why this "painter of musical landscapes" chose his name, years before J.R.R. Tolkien's cult-epic Lord of the Rings captivated filmgoers around the world. Austrian by birth, Gandalf has traveled widely through Europe, North and South American and Asia. The more cultures he has come in touch with, the more he has been touched by the realization that far more things unite than separate the various peoples on our planet. His goal in composing and recording is to create music that dissolves boundaries.
Gandalf's music is inspired by the beauty of nature and by the wisdom and myths of various cultures. He tells sound stories and describes moods and magical moments that point to other realities behind the scenes in this fast-paced modern world. He wants us to discover our incomparable and individual selves as we relax and "lose" ourselves in the listening. The music is intimate, tender, rich with grandeur and always heart opening.
Gandalf plays many and varied instruments (acoustic and electric guitars, sitar, saz, charango, bouzouki, balaphon, piano, synthesizers and sample-keyboards, and various percussion), blends acoustic with electronic and spherical sounds and weaves folk-elements into symphonic structures to create his unmistakable and unique style. He has worked with international artists, including former Genesis guitarist Steve Hackett, Tunesian vocalist and oud player Dhafer Yossef and English cellist and vocalist Emily Burridge a.k.a. White Horse, whom he met while on a concert tour in Brazil. Gandalf has also written music for theatre and film. (About the Artist)
