Week of August 15, 1999
Peter K. Seiler (organ, piano, synthesizers) had a musical background from his university days (he studied classical music) which prompted him to form a classical rock trio, in the tradition of Emerson, Lake and Palmer. The other two members of Seiler's project, which adopted the name Tritonus, were Ronald Brand (bass, vocals, guitar) and Charlie Jost (drums). Their first album (1975) was quite conventional for the symphonic rock genre. However, Between The Universes (1976) was a definite improvement, benefiting from Geff Harrison's vocals (ex-2066 & Then and Kin Ping Meh), catchy tunes and great keyboard arrangements (mainly synthesizers). After this, Seiler seemed to lose the interest in Tritonus, and worked increasingly with other musicians, like Michael Bundt. Tritonus played together for the last time in 1978. Check out Bundt's solo albums if you enjoy this groups musical style. Seiler resurfaced as a synthesist (with a tendency towards new age) in the late eighties on IC.
