Genre(s): Electronic
From: Vienna, Austria



As part of the Viennese techno scene of the 1990s, multi-instrumentalist Peter Zirbs has released records under numerous pseudonyms, produced and remixed various artists and scored a number of experimental films. With the diversity of his work, he has repeatedly broken genre boundaries over the years until he finally stepped into the limelight as a solo artist in 2018 with his acclaimed album debut “What if we don’t exist?”. Zirbs’ musical blend of futuristic synth pop, experimental and graceful ambient and minimal music even prompted an American music critic to compare it to Bowie’s legendary album “Low”.

In the first pandemic year of 2020, Zirbs landed another Europe-wide radio hit with his energetic EP „On A Beautiful Day“ and the almost prophetic song „Locked In“, which he released with former Archive singer Craig Walker. In winter 2021 Zirbs finally showed a completely different musical side with the experimental instrumental EP „Splinters“, celebrating his penchant for minimal music, electronics and film music.

Almost six years after his solo album debut, his long-awaited second longplayer „Melancholia Beach“ will follow in winter 2023, for which Zirbs has once again brought numerous guests into the studio.
