KURT ZELTNER

MFacts & Figures
Born 19... well...sometime between the Second World War and the First Gulf War...
Where? In the Bernese Seeland. In Gampelen, Bern to be precise. The first German-speaking village on the route between Neuchâtel – Bern. Some also say the last. That is to say..... the last Swiss-German village on the route Bern – Neuchâtel.
If it's true that Friedrich Dürrenmatt found the “ins”piration for his “Old Lady” on his train journeys from Ins station, then my school would have been the secondary school in “Güllen”. From there, the next step - starting the Art School in Biel - was logical. Logical?
“So then, Kurt. Art School! ...and what do you do there?” asked my neighbor, Farmer Hansueli, during the sugar beet harvest. “Draw”, Young Kurt full of pride boldly grabbed the next beet. “Draw? All day? ... and what do you learn when you're doing that?” silence. Another beet. “well, we do painting too...”, my attempt at justification. Silence. A rotten beet. I left it lying there. “Drawing and painting? ...right...and what what job can you get with this education?“ Silence again. Two beets at once. “Well, you know ....er... well, you can do all types of work afterwards...graphic design, interior designer, artist ... ” Third silence. No beets. “Look, you've left a beet....” Continued silence.
So I became a window-dresser. Like Tinguely...and I believe Helge Schneider as well...today of course it would be called a 3D Polydesigner. At that time, you were just a window-dresser. A window decorator. Decorador de escaparades.
And like all decorators I subsequently learned anything and everything, and how to do it quickly and efficiently. Traumatized by the ruthless vocational school, I began to consciously and successfully avoid museums, galleries and anything to do with art. This incredible sacrifice now allows me to declare that I have achieved my artistic deficits myself and without copying anyone else! If I were to get carried away - which I really hate - behaving like an art critic (is criticizing an art?) in an attempt to pigeonhole my activity, I would probably choose the pigeonhole of Kurt Zeltner. Stylistically between Goofy and Rolf Knie...so I think...hmm, because there is no scope at all between. Yeah, you've got it.
So what does this have to do with music. Well, not much, apart from: “So then, Kurty. Lucerne Jazz School! ...hmm...so what do you do there? “ asked my neighbor, Farmer Hansueli, when harvesting the sugar beet. “Music”, Young Kurt full of pride, grabs boldly for the next beet. “Music? All day? ... and what is taught when you're doing that?” silence. Another beet. “You know, singing and other stuff...”, my attempt at justification. Silence. A rotten beet. I leave it lying there. “Singing? ...aha...and what can you do with this education?“ Silence again. Two beets at once. “Well, you know....erm... well, you can be anything afterwards...jazz musician, composer, rock star...“ silence for a third time. No beets. “Look, you've left a beet....” continued silence.
ME - EP (2017)
no convention to any style, to any label, to any "to do for getting' airplay", just for ME, and to all that like ME as I am....
pure, honest and free
