Seiler und Speer is an Austrian band from Bad Vöslau that formed in 2014. Members are comedian and actor Christopher Seiler, as well as film producer Bernhard Speer.
Both artists started their collaboration in 2014, when Christoph Seiler started his project "Schichtwechsel" (change of shifts). Bernhard Speer was producer and director. Christopher Seiler performed his first cabaret displays and wanted to accompany them with music.
The texts caricature various situations out of daily life with Austrian humor. What was only intended to be a humorous project in the beginning grew into a first album.
Seiler and Speer performed in front of 100,000 attendees at a concert for solidarity for asylum seekers at Heldenplatz, Vienna. They received a gold record for 7,500 units sold in October 2015. In December 2015 they received a platinum certification for 15,000. The mix of romantic, daily comic, and popular songs became a success.
Anton Horvath is a fictional character, performed by Christopher Seiler. Horvath is an unemployed, mentally impaired, constantly drunk man. He believed people respect him, but they actually mock him and think he is an idiot. Multiple Horvathslos videos have been produced.
