Hi, my name is PJ Wassermann and I’m a composer, performer and producer. I’ve been into electronic music for more than 40 years but I also love to play guitar. I prefer the Stratocaster with the Roland VG99 but in the last couple of years I’ve started to enjoy the acoustic nylon string guitar again. Recently I’ve added the Boss SY-300 guitar synthesizer, especially for my Schaltkreis Wassermann live gigs.
After many years of working only in the studio in the last 10 years I’ve concentrated on live music that’s mostly composed and produced by myself. I have three different live projects:
This is a psychedelic multimedia music circus. PsyChill music with live guitar and vocals, trippy visuals by Asteriza and often with additional musicians and dancers. For more information please go to ChillyTrippyDippy’s own website.
The oldest of my current music projects, with the 1982 cult album PSYCHOTRON. Since April 2016 I have a new Schaltkreis live set that links the 80s sound of analog synthesizers with the new guitar synth SY-300 and other electronic live instruments.
Eternal Bliss live guitar psyTrance
The combination of tough beats and playful psyTrance tracks with my rocking electric guitar keeps delivering an inspiring live experience to dancers and listeners.
In the studio I’m always working on new tracks. I like to work on different songs at a time and then put them aside for a while to pick them up later again and make great albums for you to enjoy!
But most importantly I love to play live all over the world so if you want me to play at your party, club or festival then please get in touch!
Looking forward to hearing from you.
My latest psychedelic chillout album Space Drone Salad.

ChillyTrippyDippy is a magical psychedelic circus from Ibiza for your ears and eyes, based on my chillout music and performed by the dancers Aida Miro, Amanda Orlov and Marta Chandra. The visuals are usually performed by VJ Asteriza (in this video by the VJ team Nourathar). The video ihas been recorded at Sansara, Ibiza. I Was joined onstage by drummer Juan dell’Erba.
I Am One (LSD Housewife), official music video, from the “Space Drone Salad” album. The video uses some footage from an LSD experiment in the 50ies where a housewife volunteered for the experiment. The live parts have been shot by Albert Martos at Tetra Ibiza with visual projections by Asteriza and with the Butoh dancers Aïda Miro and Amanda Orlov.
