El Proyecto Ondas fue creado por Reinhard Flatischler y Johny Bertl, dos compositores autríacos de orígenes muy diferentes.
Mientras que Taketina y trabajos tempranos con grupos como MegaDrums hicieron a Flatischler un nombre importante en la música rítmica, Johny Bertl ha trabajado con algunos de los mejores artistas y orquestas de música clásica y de fusión. Estos dos compositores unieron sus habilidades y conocimientos únicos para crear una nueva forma musical que permite que estructuras rítmicas complejas dentro de la música, tratando por igual mente, cuerpo y emociones. Nunca antes se habían mezclado poli-ritmos complejos, progresiones armoniosas y sonidos de percusión impresionantes de modo tan conmovedor y dramático.
El Proyecto Ondas es parte de una serie de composiciones orquestales donde "Waves Upon Waves" es la primera. Fue creado como una comisión por la Sociedad Coral de Auckland y tuvo su premiere mundial en Auckland Town Hall, Nueva Zelanda, con más de 200 músicos participantes en una interpretación impresionante.
El Proyecto Espacio
Flatischler and Bertl are currently working on their second orchestral suite called. "Space beyond Space“. This second opus is also a commission by the Auckland Choral Society and is intended to draw the attention of the audience to the most mysterious element in music - space. The artistic duo created a new composition technique, called „coloring“ that enables the audience to experience the same rhythm completely different through rhythmically highlighting various elements. The premier is scheduled for July 26th 2018 in Auckland Townhall, New Zealand.
