Peter Piek is the consummate artist. His work remains bold and distinct across a broad range of media. He’s interested in what he calls “the moment of creating”. His lyrics owe a touching melancholy, without abdicating great euphoria. In many songs he copes personal experiences, posivite experiences and defeats. His music shows great songwriter potential. Peter Piek is rock, is guitar, is indie. Following the motion of 60s art -from Velvet Underground, Bob Dylan or painters like Ernst Wilhelm Nay or de Kooning - his work states in music and painting also something sketchy, an unclouded & fresh move that unites rock, beat & art in an inspiring way.
Critics get rather complicated when they talk about Peter Piek as painter, using words like ‘Being’, the ‘Physically compound consistency of the canvas’ and ‘the rhythmic breathing’ which is ‘synthesised’ ‘into an interwoven interaction’. One stereotype is not enough. If you try describe Peter Piek’s music, you might classify it as Independent Rock, although it would hardly fit as this is not quite correct. The term Pop would not come close to his ambition for art, as his Songs are too ecclectic and complex. Peter Piek’s voice is unusual. He sings in a high pitch, but not in head voice. It sounds similiar to Neil Young and Sigur Ros. The shows are always intensive. Eveyone who ever saw Peter Piek live knows the endorphin soaring flights which undilated an evening with Peter Piek brings. The beat of the drums animate head, feets and hands. The funky bass lines create a pleasant oscillate feel in the stomach region. The virtuostic guitar riffs make a proffesional air guitar player out of every normal listener and the voice bewitches the senses. A mixture from Pop, Rock and Funk with catchy melodies and a dash of critical melancholie.
German Art Scientist Ina Gille describes it like that: “Colour patterns and structures that are music statements which express the love of life. “Damn great paintings” as he points out. You see a garden designed by drawings and paintings with rhythmic and melodious patterns. As if someone were dancing across the screens. A new perspective and get an impression of what opposes each form of power: the free expression of life.”
