In the second half of the eighties and throughout the nineties, I was a bass guitarist  in various indie rock bands. As an occasional synth player and early owner of both a C64 and Atari ST I quickly became  interested in electronic music as well. I believe that still my music consists, for the most part, of indie,  post rock and electronic elements.

Schmitz & Niebuhr – Orgelqualität (Download) (2008), LP, with Bernd Wilberg

A joint electro-acoustic project with Bernd Wilberg and lots of guest musicians (the track above sung by Michael Cramm), recorded between 2002 and 2004, but for whatever reason released only in 2008).

Treme (Demo, 2003) – with Bernd Wilberg
