Meanwhile a majority of todays jazz pianists spent their youth in music conservatories playing Bach fugues, the musical education of Andrej Hrasko (Wavebuffet) in the late eighties was plaing guitar and singing in obscure hard core, punk and heavy metal garage bands.
With the arrival of nineties he left his native Slovakia and after a couple of years of nomadic street busking he settled down in New York City, where besides the struggle of getting the industry's attention with a few rock bands, he started to learn the craft of music production and composition in his humble home recording studio. Also at about the same time he was developing curiosity in emerging dance and electronica styles of the nineties and sneaked into the piano rehearsal rooms of NYC music schools to practice blues, jazz and boogie-woogie piano. His HipHop and Reggae influences might also be attributed to this period of life in Harlem and Brooklyn.
In 2000, he relocated to Barcelona where besides playing in a classic rock cover band, worked as a DJ and produced music for various local artists. In the past eight years Andrej's been living in the south of Spain, have been involved with various bands and music projects, his most recent project is a live dance and electronic group Ape Nation, as well as playing at jazz piano gigs and composing music for TV, film and multimedia.
