In 2006 the keyboardist, arranger and composer Gerald Peter produced the demo record „Closing Doors“ with which his vision of a progressive rock-concept album was born. With „Closing Doors“ as his point of departure he has been working on the concept-album “Jeremias - Foreshadow of Forgotten Realms“ since 2008. In 2009 he met the guitar player Rupert Träxler with whom he started the recordings of the guitar tracks. In 2010 he met the singer and writer Taris Brown with whom he worked on a solid story for the mentioned concept album. Gerald formed Circle of Illusion in 2011 with further 7 excellent musicians including Rupert Träxler on guitar, Stephan Först on bass, Aaron Thier on drums and Ulrike Müllner on the electric violin. Taris Brown, Cara Cole and Elgar Shafran provide the vocals for the voices of the prog opera’s Jeremy, Jelena and Sarah.
