Gerd Weyhing biography
Gerd WEYHING is a German Composer and Musician in the area of Progressive Rock, Ambient, Drone,Soundscapes and Electronic Music. he lives and works in a small quiet village in the Palatinate Forest / Germany. From early childhood he played various instruments including Accordion, Clarinet and Organ. He picked up the Guitar at the age of 14 and stayed with it until today. Recently he started to play with a 12-string tapping guitar similar to the Chapman Stick, he also started to play the drums. His inspirations include the Beatles, Mike Oldfield, King Crimson, Gentle Giant, Genesis, Magma, Hedningarna, Klaus Schulze, Steve Reich and Nik Bärtsch's Ronin.
