“The way I work is like a film director - first there’s the vision of how a song is going to sound. Then the musicians that I surround myself with translate that idea perfectly into sound.” observes CARLOS PERÓN. Outsiders occasionally claim that PERÓN operates like a prison warden, perhaps one reason why his various projects seem so mature.

CARLOS PERÓN was the founder of globally renowned cult act YELLO, initiator of the world’s first ever video clip, ‘The Evening’s Young’ from the group’s second album “Claro Que Si”. Following the fifth YELLO album “You Gotta Say Yes To Another Excess”, which was released as the world’s first ever Compact Disc in 1983, CARLOS left the group to embark on an ambitious solo career. Many music critics agree that YELLO lost their raw edge with the departure of PERÓN.

In 1984, CARLOS composed the score for the movie, “Die Schwarze Spinne” (The Black Spider), and was commissioned with two further oeuvres between 1985 and 1992, “Die Schöpfung der Welt” and the concept album “Gold For Iron”. During this time, he conceived the idea for the song, “Motorman”. He also used this time to boost his reputation as a producer, working on remixes for the Munich Symphonic Sound Orchestra, Brainticket, Wolfsheim, Sielwolf and numerous other projects.

Later, CARLOS conquered the charts with Wolfsheim and their track “The Sparrows And The Nightingales”, which was later successfully covered by Mark O. The “Impersonator” albums #1 to #3 also arrived in stores during this period. Unlike any other release, these albums highlighted PERÓN’s talent for experimentation.

1989 saw the move to Teldec Records with the album “Gold For Iron”, followed by various compositions for German television. In 1992, he developed the music for the fashion performance, “Terminatrix”, which was financed and presented by pay-TV channel Premiere. From 1993, CARLOS began composing music for erotic films, creating the hugely popular “La Salle Blanche”, which was used as the soundtrack to the movie “The White Room”. This record achieved a cult like status and sold well into five figures and was succeeded by “La Salle Noire”, “La Salle Violette” and “La Salle Rouge”.

PERÓN continued his successful work in collaboration with Science Fiction author Ady Henry Kiss, creating a new genre - the film on paper. The musical accompaniment “Original Novel Soundtracks” was released from 1995 on and was compiled as the boxed set, “Der Planet” in 1999. Between 2000 and 2003, numerous releases saw the light of day such as “Porcellum Traianum”, “Die schwarze Spinne”, “Der Luzidus”, “Carnival Of Dreams” and the patent leather boxed set “Les Salles” as well as many other productions on labels like AntIk, Strahlomant and Himmelpforten. In 2005, CARLOS produced the CD “The Dark Side Of Syd” for Lothar Gärtner’s new Phantasmagoria label. His most recent project was a live performance of Les Salles, recorded in Leipzig at the Wave Gotik Treffen in 2003. This impressive DVD featured a superb 5.1 surround sound mix and sizzling images from dominatrix Lady Isis’ fetish show.

In 2006, CARLOS is scheduled to re-issue his entire back catalogue consisting of 27 albums, which will all be remastered and complemented by rare bonus tracks on SPV’s Synthetic Symphony label. The first series is due to be released in April and will consist of the following recordings:

“Impersonator I”, “Gold For Iron”, “Terminatrix”, “Nothing Is True Everything Is Permitted”, and “Die Schöpfung der Welt”.

“Mr. Dom” as he is sometimes known is one of the few composers to risk working with very profound reverb clouds, while he is also renowned for his ‘noise atmospheres’, which he has long used since before the introduction of sampling technology. With the arrival of sound sampling, he was the first to experiment with equipment such as the Fairlight, Emulator and Mirage. During his time with YELLO, CARLOS may well have been one of the world’s first sampling masters.

Outside of his musical life, CARLOS PERÓN is a passionate cook. His house parties are legendary and one of his favourite recipes is frog’s legs à la provencale.

Bon appétit!
