has been playing in various bands for almost a lifetime. He started out as a guitarist, and still loves this instrument for all it has to offer. Yet time never stops, and much has changed since Mindmovie laid hands on his first second-hand six-string. Today, his main focus is more on the production and composition of all kinds of electronic, pop and rock music, and the sounds of his guitar have become just one ingredient to be added to a new tune, albeit a very special one.
Apart from his work as a composer, Mindmovie is currently involved in three band projects, the first of which is Flaming Bess, a progressive rock band founded in the late 70s. The second Band is Wi:Re (Wierschem vs Reimer) and has so far released two ep’s on VIM records, and the third is named ACSS and produces funny pop songs with german lyrics
So far Flaming Bess have released five albums:
Tanz der Götter (1979),
Verlorene Welt (1981),
Fata Morgana (1996),
Black Sun (2005),
Wächter des Lichts (2008).
Der gefallene Stern (2013)
