LIGER WAS STARTED BY THE MULTITALENTED ARTIST AND LABEL-FOUNDER DINO
SPILUTTINI IN LATE 2005, FORMERLY AS A SIDE PROJECT. OCTOBER 2005 MARKS
THE OFFICIAL DEBUT OF LIGER, WITH THE RELEASE OF HIS FIRST EP “THE INFRAORDINARY”
ON HIS OWN NETLABEL “BEATISMURDER”. LIGER’S MUSIC – BACK THEN –
BASED ON SELF-MADE-PERCUSSION, COMPUTERS AND CHEAP STRING INSTRUMENTS
BOUGHT THROUGH E-BAY.
AT THAT TIME LIGER HAS BEEN SUPPORTED LIVE AND IN THE STUDIO BY:
- christian schroeder/graf herzogin (doublebass, melodica)
- princess lea (glockenspiel, accordion, vocals)
- stephan leeb (trombone, trumpet)
LIGER’S MUSIC HAS BEEN CLASSIFIED AS indietronica, shoegazer AND OTHER
COMMON TERMS, BUT WAS ALWAYS PREFERED OF BEING CALLED POSTFOLK, AS IN
POST-ROCK: ANIMATING AN OLD CONSERVATIVE GENRE WITH A DIFFERENT, FRESH
APPROACH.
TIME AFTER TIME IT EVOLVED INTO A FULLTIME-JOB, RESULTING IN A SO TO SAY
TURNING POINT OF THE PROJECT IN SPRING 2006:
PERCUSSIONIST AND COMPOSER GERNOT SCHEITHAUER JOINED THE ONE-MAN-SHOW FOR
ORIGINALLY 1 LIVE SHOW AT THE SHELTER IN VIENNA. FROM THAT POINT ON, THESE
TWO EXCLUSIVE MUSICIANS DECIDED TO WORK ON LIGER AS A UNIT.
AS FORMERLY, SPILUTTINI HAS DONE ALL THE LYRICS, SONGS AND ARRANGEMENTS ON
HIS OWN, FROM ABOUT SUMMER 2006 ONWARDS, IT BECAME A MULTITASKING PROJECT,
CONSISTING OF THE IDEAS AND WANTS OF TWO DIFFERENT PEOPLE. IN FACT OF
THAT, THE MUSIC OF LIGER HAS CHANGED INTO A MORE EXPRESSIVE MUSIC, WITH
WAY MORE INFLUENCES FROM ALL KINDS OF MUSIC, AS THOUGH AS A MORE
ELECTRONICAL INFLUENCED PROJECT. MAIN POINT IS TO COMBINE ELECTRONICS WITH
DIFFERENT INSTRUMENTS (FOR ARRANGEMENT PURPOSES) AND CREATE AN IMPASSIONED
AMOUNT WITHIN THE MUSIC. A LOT OF DIFFERENT INSTRUMENTS (AS THOUGH AS
INFLUENCES) ARE THROWN INTO THE “GAME”; BOTH OF THE ARTISTS (NOT WANTING
THEMSELVES TO BE LIMITED BY ANYTHING) ARE WORKING WITH GUITARS, ZITHER,
ACCORDEON, CASIO KEYBOARDS, KEYBOARDS, VIBRAPHONE, GLOCKENSPIEL,
PERCUSSION, UKULELE, ELECTRONICS, ... AND IF NOT ABLE TO PLAY THINGS ON
THEIR OWN, BEEING SUPPORTED BY MUSICIANS ON CELLO, DOUBLE BASS,
CLARINETTE,…
CURRENTLY THE BAND IS PREPARING FOR THEIR FIRST EUROPEAN TOUR (INCLUDING
CONCERTS IN CZECH REPUBLIC, GERMANY, NETHERLANDS, BELGIUM & SWITZERLAND)
AND THEREFORE WORKING ON ITS FIRST EP. ALTHOUGH A LOT OF STUDIO WORK IS
DONE RIGHT NOW IN VIEW OF THE DEBUT ALBUM WHICH IS PLANNED TO BE RELEASED
IN SPRING 2007.
