Dusseldorf based Stefan Schneider’s music has a breadth of vision that creates a deep sense of space and an aching longing that is always hard to pin down. It comes as no surprise that he initially studied photography. Founding member of electronic trio “to rococo rot” and “Kreidler”,  he is a contant searcher for new settings and collaborators the list is already extensive: Alexander Balanescu, St Etienne, Annie Whitehead, Pole, Jochen Imler, Roedelius, Bill Wells. Arto Lindsay, The Pastels etc. He is also involved in a series of fieldrecording projects in Kenya for Honest Jon Records and has delivered a series of seminars in the relationship between Sound and Image.
