Peter Mayer is a composer and guitarist. His pieces combine many ways of artistic expression: Sonic, spatial, visual and physical elements are merged in a compositional manner to  become a multidimensional experience. Peter Mayer is interested in the concept of time and consequently in the psyche of the audience. Mayer knows no style constraints when it comes to tonality and rythm. In his compositions both, sounds as well as very harmonious passages can be found. Rhythmically, he makes use of a free, gesticulating language, of groove, of odd time signatures, and various improvisational frames. He collages traditional narrative elements in his compositions with passages which question the passing of time. In this way, he challenges the audience always with his pespectives of changing conceptions.
