Hi, my name is Wolfgang Gaube, I am living in beautiful Vienna, Austria after ten years in Dublin, Ireland and love to create and express myself through sound and music. I compose, play piano and keyboards, do sound design, sound engineering and produce my music. I have a diverse background in styles and a broad interest in music, from classical to current genres and love global collaborative projects, the visual arts and film as all forms of contemporary art.

 

My focus is to create authentic quality music that reflects and contributes with my flavour, style and beauty. I have a nice touch on the piano and my playing and music is honest, versatile and soulful in a slow to upper-medium tempo range. I compose piano and sound based music from songs, ambient lounge to film with and without beats, which I produce in my project studio that is equipped for recording of software instruments, instruments and voice - especially enjoy working with vocals. What touches me most is the song and a melody, voice, open spacious ambient feeling, jazzy funky grooves and a soulful expression.

 

Background – I started at an early age with classical piano. At that time, I experienced music as colours and feelings and soon after, I began to compose. Then I came in contact with jazz and the jazz piano and was fascinated with the free expression and the colourful sounds of the chords. With my first synthesizer, the Yamaha DX7IIFD, I began to explore electronic music and sound programming and build my first project studio.

 

I studied piano primarily with private teachers and at the Vienna Music Academy, attended master classes with international musicians and teachers. My broad interest in music led me to courses and workshops in composition, arrangement, orchestration, improvisation, electro-acoustic music, sound design, sound engineering, the healing aspect of music, voice work and self-development.

 

My piano style is influenced by many musicians and genres that touched my heart. A great inspiration for my piano playing have been Joe Zawinul, Chick Corea, Herbie Hancock and George Duke. Genres I like are classical, medieval, jazz, smooth jazz, pop, r&b, soul, neo-soul, electronic, house, deep house, downtempo, minimal, chillout, lounge, ambient atmospheric sonic textures and soundscapes, world and music for film. 

 

My experience in music ranges from composing and producing, playing piano and keyboards, playing live and providing lessons for children, adults and supported by my training in developmental psychology, some experience with children labelled to be in the autistic spectrum, and I contributed music in the context of hospice. I have business experience in global and multi-cultural environments of IT companies in international marketing and sales, team management, project and event management, logistics and training.

 

Now – I realise the importance of expressing my hearts passion in simplicity, joy and freedom and choose creativity, music and communication as form of my expression and expansion. New balanced and compassionate ways of being and expressing in these exciting times of awakening and changes on earth, in humanity and consciousness bring in new energy and potentials, which I am very excited to explore.

What touches me most is the song and a melody, voice, open spacious ambient feeling, jazzy funky grooves and a soulful expression.
