"Som urspårade barnkalas med färg, blod, fjädrar och konfetti, blandat med haute couture, videoprojektioner, strobe och dansant popmusik." - Bon

Bio

Zeigeist started as a creative project in Sweden 2005. The idea was to find a meeting between the different members profession, and experience how the different subject fields could be vitalized with help from each other: stage performance, storytelling, film and photography, publicity, fashion, styling, graphic design and composition/music.

During the last 2,5 years the project has developed in different ways, and the part of Zeigeist as a music live act with visual elements has been fortified. With influences like Matthew Barney, Comme des garçons, Peter Greenaway, Andy Warhol, David Lynch and Alexander McQueen they have made performances – from small club events with experimental elements to big festival performances with dramatic lines and stories. ”Like a degenerated children’s party with paint, blood, feathers and confetti, mixed with haute couture, video projections, strobe and punchy pop music”. The goal is to make the performances in constant development; the audience shall never know what they can expect.

With focus on the music, Zeigeist has provided themselves a style influenced by the greatest hits through the pop history with a starting point in the 80’s well-produced pop, mixed with lyrics and stories with dystopian undertones. The colorful singer, Princess, has best been described as “this century’s perfect hybrid of Kate Bush and Cyndi Lauper”. Zeigeist became a name when Tar Heart – their newordervisage-influenced song about a young lovers nightly secrets – got in focus in magazines, blogs, TV and radio. Among others Pitchfork Media (US) listed the unmastered demo version as one of the best tracks 2006.
