Console came to life somewhere in between 1994 and 1995. I started it as a solo project, but after playing the first concerts, I found that it’s boring to play alone and so I invited some good old friends to join my live-sets. Since then Console has always been a band when it comes to playing concerts, even if I still write and produce a lot of the music myself.
The first release of Console music is found on “The day my favorite insect died”-Compilation (Kollaps/Payola, 1995). There are three Console tracks on this compilation. A bit later the first 12″ and the first album “Pan or ama” on payola followed.
In 1997 I produced my first radioplay for the BRII and then found in Andreas Ammer a co-worker with whom I have been creating almost every radioplay ever since.
The Console band are: Miriam Osterrieder (voc, keys), Christoph Brandner (dr), Axel Fischer (MS10, git), Michael Schwaiger (keys, pad), Anton Kaun (visuals), Martin Gretschmann (comp)
