Still working on that hot first release.



John Worth, a Keyboardist of 20 years and the originator of the Aftereffekt, realized something after a long string of musical endeavours and failures. Cover music was not rewarding enough, regardless of how popular the band was, and regardless of how much fun it was to play on stage. Far and away, the priority was the composition and arrangement of original music.

Initially, the Aftereffekt was going to be a home-made project. Everything written solely on keyboards, with recording and sequencing software. When a few of the songs were written and reviewed by the public, John got enough feedback that basically said it was good music but antiseptic. It needed organic instrumentation.

The most difficult part of a band is finding the perfect members. Many groups will die in this stage. For the Aftereffekt, more than a couple of years had passed with a revolving lineup. Finally, the dream group was just... there, with everyones motivation, attitude and talent. Great players all, and a good learning process through all the trials, so in the end it was worthwhile.

The Aftereffekt is not mainstream. What their music is, is different without being strange, catchy without being commercial, aggressive without being tiring. Though the musician have written and played for showcases, theatre, institutions for the arts, composed radio (DJ) launch themes, studied at peabody, etc etc... the end result of the bands interest is to write and play good music. Hopefully catch the attention of a prog label, and begin a career in the media / soundtrack industry.
