John Strieder - Composer / Artist

Collaboration with War From A Harlots Mouth for their Album "Voyeur". I composed "Origin", "Beyond Life And Death", the insertion in "Catacombæ" as well as "Epiphany" for this Album. In the track "Catacombæ", my string parts and Simon's guitar parts are based vaguely on Mussorgsky's "Catacombs" from "Pictures at an Exhibition".

"Contemporary Classic has influenced me a lot lately, because you can learn a lot about layering and especially atonality in it, which works so well for my style of writing. The fact that we got to work with an actual composer for some pieces is even better, because it‘s great to bring those two worlds together and show this influence in its purest form. John Strieder has done an outstanding job with his contributions." - Simon Hawemann, War From A Harlots Mouth / Nightmarer
