e c h o boomer is a seven piece Space Pop/Jazz band led and founded by me. The term „echoboomer“ refers to sociology and actually describes the generation born between 1970 and 1990. In this context though, it means a lot more: e c h o boomer is a laboratory for composition and improvisation, for ideas of different music and set-ups.

In late 2019 the band released their first Album „Aliens On Board“, which turned out to be a very colourful piece of music: Delicately composed soundscapes mix with noise improvisations, „Song-alike“ - structures reside on rhythmically intriguing grounds without missing any clarity. „Aliens on Board“ was voted as one of the top 10 Jazz albums in 2019 by Viennese magazine FALTER.

e c h o boomer can sound big, fragile, funny, heavy, deep and certainly makes an attempt to surprise their audience. (Pressetext)

​From 2020 to 2023, “Timeless Warrior" was created, the 2nd studio album by the band E C H O BOOMER. While Beate Wiesinger composes all the pieces, she considers the band to be a collective pool and synthesis of the musicians, their different personalities, and sonic languages. She is convinced that the notion of doing something "alone" is merely a construct.

Michal - delicately grooving and hovering above, Philipp - with his own timbre and mood, Florian & Clemens - an explosive combo that not only shatters the boundaries of humor, Alois & Astrid - two different solar systems that are nevertheless related.

And Beate? She might be the "timeless warrior" traversing these universes and galaxies, processing these impressions into pieces. Integral to the aesthetics of this music is the collaboration with sound engineer & producer David Furrer, who also mixed and co-produced the first album. So, how does this album sound? Sonic openness, collages, miniatures, fragments that evolved into completed arrangements or remained as fragments during the recording process, free improvisational structures, songs, noise, minimally held moods - all of this constitutes Timeless Warrior.
