The New Government (by Xynx)
12 January 2005
Alex Seifert is one of those names in music which is truly unique. Within his repertoire of music are to be found pieces which blend elements of the best of electronic music with the power of rock music. It is distinctive and immediately recognizable as his work.
Creeping DarknessSeifert has been a member of the German rock band, Creeping Darkness, since 2012. Originally starting as the band’s drummer, he has developed into their primary composer with the band incorporating many of his songs into their live shows.
The BeginningsSeifert began creating music as a hobby in 2003. He began with a simple computer program which allowed him to create pieces with short, pre-recorded samples. After learning the basics of music composition, he began employing more powerful tools such as Reason, ProTools and Logic Pro which allowed him to compose far more complex and artistic pieces. Of course not all of these tools were software-based. Seifert also plays guitar, bass, drums and keyboard, all of which he uses to create his unique sound.
Asson and Those Guys AgainIn 2006, Seifert began his first rock projects. He was a founding member of the rock band Those Guys Again where he contributed as the band's drummer and he played a key role in songwriting. At the same time, he began his own side project which focused on nothing but rock music. This project was called Asson. He wrote and recorded all of Asson's songs himself, playing every instrument.
XynxThe next project Seifert would embark on was called Xynx. Together with a friend of his, they created a new sound for the electronic dance scene which combined Seifert's experience in electronic and rock music with his friend's experience in club music. Xynx had only a single release called The New Government, but it was generally well-received.
Other ActivitiesAside from just music, Seifert is also interested in many other activities. He actively writes historical articles for his blog History Rhymes, he does freelance web development on the side and he enjoys writing short works of fiction. When he is not at his computer or creating music, he is outdoors enjoying nature, hiking, camping, off-roading, mountain biking or simply relaxing. He is also a prolific reader and has collected an immense personal library of fiction and non-fiction books.
The MusicSince the beginning, Seifert has created well over three hundred pieces of music and a total of fifteen albums. His music will take you through a world which is both dark and gloomy while occasionally being happy and upbeat. He continues to actively compose new music with which he pushes the boundaries of what has come before him. The music is what he lives for and it is the music which makes life for him.
Can I use Alex's music for my project?It depends on the project. If it is a personal video, you may use his music as long as you give him full credit. The name of the song, "Alex Seifert" and "http://www.alexseifertmusic.com" must be clearly displayed somewhere in the video (at the beginning, at the end, in the credits, etc). Simply giving credit to Alex in the comments is not enough, it must be in the video somewhere. As long as the above criteria are met, you may freely publish it or distribute it.
