Since 1999 POEGS publishes his music over the net. Poegs is Christian Zumdick,
a german composer, guitarist and keyboarder, who is writing, arranging, performing
and producing his music by oneself. The biggest musical influences are Ambient
/ New Age music like Tangerine Dream, Mike Oldfield, Kitaro, Klaus Schulze or
Vangelis and psychedelic and progressive Rock music of the 70's in style of
Pink Floyd, Camel, Jethro Tull, Eloy or Genesis. The music is a blend of meditative
New Age over spheric Ambient / SpaceRock to bluesy ProgRock. The sound is dominated
by e-guitar, piano and synthesizer, sometimes with and sometimes without drums!
The album TRANSMIGATRATION was released in September 1999. It contains different
