Born in 1984 in former German democratic republic, came in touch with electronic music for the first time when his father gave him a few tapes with music of Vangelis, Tangerine Dream and Jean Michel Jarre. It was actually “love at first sight” and since then his fascination and love to synthesized sounds became bigger and bigger. While other kids in his age were only listening to modern pop music he was continuing exploring a whole other world of music, only created with synthesizers and started to find out how sound synthesis is working.
He started to make own music experiments after he had the opportunity to play with a modern keyboard at his friends place which opened him a door to a whole new world of possibilities.
At Christmas 1995 he got a small and cheap keyboard to play with.
By changing school in 1997 he met Ronny Heinsch and they became very good friends. Together they were working on several short films shooting on a simpleÂ Video 8 camera which slowly changed to digital formats in the years.
After Music software became popular he started to make his own projects by then.
He made his early “attempts to walk” with simple Tracker software and MIDI composing programs.
The years were passing by and the movie projects became bigger and more difficult to make and could only be finished years later due technical and financial reasons. Since 2006 Mike is doing the soundtracks for their movies.
From 2005 till 2006 he was recording his first Album “Lucide” from the scratch, mostly using free software synthesizers and having no idea where it should lead to at the end.
Unfortunately until today this record never got released due Manufacturing issues at the record facility. It was supposed to be a double vinyl.
At the same time he started another project inspired by the classical electronic works by Wendy Carlos and Isao Tomita. He continues working on that project and is releasing some works randomly every few months, under the creative commons license, on the internet.
One of his Goals: Trying to get a Minimoog and a Prophet 08 or at least a functioning hardware synth.
