Biography Edgar 9000

Born in Mymensingh/Bangladesh. Lived in Germany, France and the U.S.A.,
now based in Munich/Germany.

His musical education started in 1974 with learning on an electric organ. Autodidactic learning of playing piano, Clavinet and keyboards plus working with analogue synthesizers resulted in releasing tapes with own compositions of electronic music through fanzines in the early eighties.
In 1995 he started to be a DJ and to release his first 12″ EPs on labels like Superstition, Sony, Delirium and Pod-Communication in the Techno and Ambient field.
He collected a stack of analogue gear up to mid 1997 – sold then his whole studio to move to Los Angeles. There together with Michael Knapp aka Xpando he started to work on building up a studio around Mike’s vast collection of analogue synths. Back in Europe was heavy touring as DJ and Live-Act under the imprint “Dr.Scissors” plus working in the art-context as sound-designer with the artist collective “Supreme Particles” (-> R111).
Other activities include appearances on art-festivals like “Profile Intermedia 8” in Bremen, “Go West” in Zuerich and as sound-designer for Kirill Preobrazhenskiys sound-installation “ Tram 4 Inner Voice Radio” at Documenta 12 in Kassel 2007.

The first Edgar 9000 release “Cluster Shiftings” on the french netlabel “Sweet Smelling Surfaces”
was downloaded a thousand times in the first two weeks.

Two full-length albums in the Minimal/Ambient/Leftfield area round up the list.
