The Guido K. Group is a synonym for the studio musician and instrumentalist Guido Kämmerling, who has written music since 1983. The first works were written for piano solo, others were prepared to play in a band. In 1988 Guido K. played piano, keyboards, synths, guitar, bass, drums and trumpet in his band "Star People" (g, b, dr, kb, tr.). Later he concentrated in working with electronic devices, such as computers, soundcarts, midi sequencer programs and hard disc recording. Up to 1998 and 2002 The Guido K. Group composed more than 300 songs. After a long period of musical silence (since 2006) The Guido K. Group returned in spring 2014 with writing and creating new music. At Last ! Equipped with new instruments (keyboards, synths) he began working with Cubase Software and the new technology of VST instruments. So The Guido K. Group reached a new level with new options of composing, working in music, mixing and recording in his homerecording area in The Guido K. Studio. Thus, The Guido K. Group composed and created about 40 new songs only within one year. In spring 2015 The GKG startet again playing real electric guitars, 25 years after last playing. An exciting new phase has begun .... The musical works of The Guido K. Group contain elements of jazz, fusion, experimental, ambient, minimal music and many other electronic genres.
