Album Notes
Balance [1994] is a global musical journey. Melodic, subtle and exotic themes interweave in a musical journey from Australia to Java, India, Africa, Europe, the Middle East and USA.
The album has been used by filmmakers, music & sound libraries and airlines.
" When composing I try to open myself to feeling and intuition and allow musical styles to interact freely avoiding set boundaries of musical style. I then sculpt and layer sounds, phrases and texture into the finished piece, into the creative Balance."
Peter Westheimer has composed music for 5 albums, two feature films, many television documentaries, theatre, art installations and acclaimed video clips.
He combines many genres of music from World Music to Electronic to Soundtrack to Ambient/chill and Classical both Eastern and western.
He uses music software, keyboards, guitar and vocals to produce his works, having performed in bands , on sitar, violin in the Australian Youth Orchestra and as an actor.
The Transition [with videoclip to the track 'Big Living'] and the Balance CD's were released successfully in Australia, Japan and the USA.
Previous releases include the Laminex Lovers EP 1983 [with charting tracks], Move LP 1985 [including the 'Move' animated videoclip acclaimed in Australia's top 10 for the year] and Sooner Than Laughter LP 1987 [with successful videoclip for the track 'State of Summer'].
His latest CD release is Music Sculptures [2004] for pleasure, filmmakers and musical travellers. The 50 tracks, drawing from previous albums and screen compositions, connect and flow into each other with a multitude of instruments, sound textures, rhythms and melodies. The moods, instrumentation and track times are clearly set out in the sleeve notes.
He continues to be involved with progressive cultural, political and environmental projects.
