BEHIND ROCK SERLING HIDES THE VERSATILE HALF-GERMAN-MADRILEÑO PRODUCER RUBEN G. KIELMANNSEGGE, ALSO KNOWN AS WATCH TV.

IN THIS PROJECT, RUBEN TRIES TO MOVE AWAY A BIT FROM HIS BLACK ROOTS AND OPEN THE DOORS TO HIS MORE ELECTRONIC SIDE, SEARCHING FOR NEW WORKING METHODS AND KEEPING AWAY FROM THE SAMPLER, TRYING TO USE MORE LIMITED RESOURCES TO ACHIEVE A MORE SPECIFIC SOUND.

FOR MORE THAN 20 YEARS RUBEN HAS EXPLORED PLENTY OF MUSICAL TERRITORIES, WITH A STRONG BLACK MUSIC INFLUENCE. BREAKS, TRIP HOP, HOUSE AND OTHER DOWNTEMPO EXPERIMENTS HAVE BLOOMED IN HIS STUDIO. AMONG THE PRODUCTIONS AND REMIXES HE’S DONE FOR OTHER ARTISTS YOU CAN COUNT PEOPLE LIKE QUANTIC, TONY ALLEN, DUSTY, WAGON COOKIN’, MOJO PROJECT, CHOP SUEY OR CASBAH 73. HE IS ALSO RESPONSIBLE OF THE PROJECT DRIVING BLIND AND NOW HE IS PART (AS A SINGER AND PRODUCER) OF THE ACID ROCK BAND GATOS NEGROS, WITH IVAN SMOKA AND CHRIS KONG. HIS MUSIC APPEARS ON MANY WELL-KNOWN COMPILATIONS, SUCH AS HOTEL COSTES (BY STEPHANE POMPUGNAC), TRUST THE DJ (BY GILLES PETERSON) OR FUTURE SOUNDS OF JAZZ (BY MICHAEL REINBOTH).

RUBEN HAS PLAYED ON STAGES ALL AROUND EUROPE, HE’S BEEN TO PLENTY OF FESTIVALS (SONAR, FIB, CITY JAZZ NIGHT, DOCTOR MUSIC AMONG OTHERS) AS A DJ AND PLAYING LIVE SHOWS. HE PLAYS REGULARLY AT VARIOUS VENUES IN MADRID AND IS A NON-STOP PRODUCER. HE’S ALSO MADE MUSIC FOR MOVIES AND EVEN DARED TO MAKE A NEW LIVE SOUNDTRACK FOR FRANÇOIS TRUFFAUT’S CLASSIC FAHRENHEIT 451. HE WON THE SPANISH ACADEMY “BEST ORIGINAL SONG” AWARD FOR HIS WORK WITH CHOP SUEY ON THE MOVIE “MY LIFE WITHOUT ME”, BY ISABEL COIXET.

IN ADDITION TO ALL THIS, AND ON HIS ENDLESS MUSICAL EXPLORATION, HE MAKES A SPLIT-PERSONALITY TWIST AND CREATES ROCK SERLING, HIS LATEST SOLO PROJECT INSPIRED ON SCIENCE FICTION (THE NAME COMES FROM ROD SERLING, CREATOR OF THE SERIES THE TWILIGHT ZONE).
DRUM MACHINES, SYNTHESIZERS AND A MICROPHONE ARE THE MAIN INGREDIENTS OF ROCK SERLING’S MUSIC, WHICH RANGES FROM THE EXPERIMENTAL TO THE DANCE FLOOR, WITH A TOUCH OF POP AND A SOUND SOMEWHERE IN BETWEEN DEEP, TECH AND INDIE.
