airman is the electro pop solo project with an innovative show by Stefan Vallbracht from Cologne, Germany.

airman delivers a straight palette of different electronic variations: You will hear SynthPop, Trance, Avantgarde and also driving Trip-Hop elements. But that doesn’t means Stefan Vallbracht hasn’t a central theme. All elements joining to a sound metting – sometimes with vocals – in an intelligent way.

Stefan Vallbracht, the mastermind of airman, doesn’t avoid inconvenience: Some songs are having very vanguard arrangements. The listener is diving into and dealing with the song. The manifold used sounds are taking the hearer to a journey through time and space – but never without a necessary dash of humour.

The songs are unmistakable influenced by Jean-Michel Jarre, Enigma, Yello, Air, Kraftwerk, Propellerheads and by the dark wave music of the 80s like Depeche Mode. But no doubt, Vallbracht goes a step beyond, is liberating from fixed patterns and blinders of electronic genres and is comparable with hard to classify pioneers like Bj√∂rk or “The Knife”.

You can call this confidently ‘ElektroTranceSynthPop 2.0″.

airman is also a live event which is, because supported by video, lighting and theatre elements, an extraordinary multimedia stage performance.

On stage airman is performing in example uncommon instruments like a laser harp, wind controller, music glove, wii mote, computer keyboard but also show elements like ‘Birdh’ – the bird man, video and laser projections and a remote controlled virtual, tibetian monk. A team of developers are working on new, unique instruments and effects.
