Dominik Müller biography
Born in Germany, 1987, DOMINIK MÜLLER began his fascination with progressive rock early. His father loved the genre and introduced him to many acts including Genesis, Jethro Tull and ELP. As his interest in music grew, he began to teach himself piano, drums, guitar and bass. His focus is primarily on classic keyboard-based prog: "I have always tried to make my music sound as if it had actually been produced in the 70s."

He recorded his first album, 'Vagabond's View', in 2003 on a four-track tape recorder and offered well-arranged, cleanly-recorded instrumental work in the vein of Bo Hansson and Keith Emerson, playing all the instruments and performing the vocals. Recording digitally for his second effort 'Levellym' in 2004, MÜLLER mixed the album on computer. Unsatisfied with digital recording, he switched back to analog in 2006 for his third work 'Sturmweh', a somewhat more modern sounding piece of progressive rock with furthered layers of instrumentation and a move toward ambient soundscapes that evoke mid-period Pink Floyd with touches of Gentle Giant-style counterpoint. "Most of my music appears while I play the keyboards", MUELLER reflected, "Other melodies 'are just there' and have to be recorded quickly - because I have never learned to write/read music properly. Then I try to compound and advance the different riffs." He also played keys for the band Skybirth which broke-up in 2005.

With a genuine love for the music of his progressive forebears and a passion for complex, neo-classical arrangements, DOMINIK MÜLLER carries the torch for a new generation of composers and is a bright star in the European retro-prog scene.

3 stars A little-known but bright young star in the European retro prog scene, Dominik Mueller plays all the instruments on his first record 'Vagabond's View'. Led by his keys and fleshed out with bass and drums, Mueller pulls off a convincing if basic-sounding freshman effort. The music consists of both landscape atmosphere a la Bo Hansson and driving, semi-classical dirges of simple but accomplished structure. Mueller is able to squeeze a lot out of a little and impresses frequently with cleverness, taste and a keen sense of the music his progressive forebears created. Mueller's father raised him on the British and European progressive rock he loved, including Jethro Tull, ELP, Genesis, Bo Hansson, Arkham, and these influences are heard throughout this album without being imitated.

The four tracks move along at a good pace and allow a healthy sampling of Mueller's requiem style, showcasing his penchant for acid church psychedelia and some very melodic synth work. The centerpiece is 'The Hermit', a classic early-style prog number with dramatic changes and a hallowed atmosphere with a bit of Floyd for texture, climaxing powerfully with some heavy synth. All in all, an outstanding debut for this young composer demonstrating great skill, integrity and vision.
