German-born Guido Negraszus is one of the very few musicians in the world who don't like to perform 'live' at all. Since his debut CD BLUE GARDEN (1990) he has performed only twice on stage in Germany and a couple of times in Australia. As a trained sound-engineer & Tonmeister (Master in Sound Engineering), he loves working in his studio TIME-2-DREAM near Perth. Guido puts a lot of effort into the recording and mixing of his music. As a result, fans recognize and acknowledge the superb sound quality of his CDs.
His music style has been described as something between New Age, Electronica ( Ambient, Chill Out & Trip Hop) and Easy Listening, very different from the traditional German progressive Electronic Music scene.
Guido's most recent projects include the completion of his latest album SAILING AWAY which he wrote, recorded and mixed at his new studio. He also composed and produced the music for Synergetic Productions' comedy film SLY DOGS.
Currently he is working on his 10th studio album, which will be released in December 2005.
Guido about the CD MEMORIES & DREAMS VOL.I:
"Memories & Dreams" is a series of music which was inspired by my journeys through Australia, Southeast Asia, Europe and Africa. Whenever I travel and whenever I see the beauty of the different countries something is happening in my heart. One day these souvenirs of my heart become music. It's like walking through my personal photobook. "Memories & Dreams Vol.I" invites you to a journey through the North-Eastern, Central and Southern parts of Australia.
What the press says:
"...currently MEMORIES & DREAMS is the CD that gets played most on my CD-Player. Once again, this is a cogent example of GUIDO NEGRASZUS's impressive abilities...!" MEMI,1998
"...what both of the Memories & Dreams CDs have in common is the outstanding purity of sound..!" KLEM-Bavaria, 1998
Peter C. from BeSonic wrote in 2004 about my music:
"If you thought that electronic music was all bleeps and squeals then this will no doubt awaken you to the beauty of the wonderful ambient tones and textures that can be created on the synthesiser."

"I discovered your music at CD Baby, as you know. I am a big fan of New Age & Electronic Music and during a search at CD Baby I could hear excerpts from your CD MIRAGE. My feelings told me that this is fantastic music, so I bought it. After the first time I listened to the whole album, my feeling were confirmed. "Cafe Mirage", "Bon Voyage", "The Blue Planet", "Fata Morgana", "Eclipse" and "Bon Voyage II" are my favourite ones, but everything is beautiful. Thanks for your work." Luis G., Portugal
