More Background Information

Der Kosmonaut is poet, spoken word artist, DJ and producer from New York
City. He produced North America's first mass Jungle and Techno Rave
event with his crew PG2M in alliance with DJ Soulslinger and Liquid Sky.
The same crew were the closing act of Woodstock 1994 after the sponsor
Pepsi took issue with our call for freedom and a sharing society.
Disillusioned with political developments in his country, Der Kosmonaut
moved to Europe where he produced and released three records with PG2M.
He split from PG2M in 1998 and moved to Vienna where he was a DJ for
Orange Radio. In late 200 Der Kosmonaut moved to Montreal, Canada where
he expanded his Spoken Word delivery and becoming a founding artist of
the Montreal Infringement Festival. From 2005-07 Der Kosmonaut produced
and performed his multimedia show "The Fall of New York" in Montreal,
Ottawa, New York and Berlin.

Der Kosmonaut moved back to Vienna in 2007 where he made history by
becoming the first non-native German poet to made an impact on the
Spoken Word scene but also the first person of color to ever win a
Poetry Slam in Austria (June 2011)
