Schneider TM / Dirk Dresselhaus – short bio:
Dirk Dresselhaus was born 1970 in Bielefeld, Germany. Since the late 
80’s he is active in different musical fields. From 1989 until 1997 he 
played and sang in indie-noiserock- and pop-bands like Locust Fudge or 
Hip Young Things before he became more active in electronic music around 
1997 with his project Schneider TM, which is responsible for a couple of 
experimental electro-freak-pop albums and mini-hits like ‚Reality Check’ 
or a coverversion of a song by The Smiths called ‚The Light 3000’ (w/ 
Kptmichigan). Next to many one-off projects like composing and recording 
music for movies (1. Mai, 66/67, Polnische Ostern etc.), theater (The 
Scorpionfish, Louis & Bebe w/ Joanna Dudly) or radioplays (Release, 
Hochhaus w/ Paul Plamper), he plays & records with freeform 
noise-projects like Angel (w/ Ilpo Väisänen of Pan sonic), Mr. Schmuck’s 
Farm (w/ Hildur Gudnadottir of Lost In Hildurness / Mum etc.) and Real 
Time (w/ Reinhold Friedl of Zeitkratzer) on a regular basis. Since quite 
a while he frequently plays improv concerts on varying instruments like 
guitar, electronics, balaphon or using fieldrecordings, sometimes solo 
and other times together with Jochen Arbeit (of Einstürzende Neubauten, 
Die Haut), Damo Suzuki (ex-Can), the japanese dancer Tomoko Nakasato and 
others. In 2007 Dirk Dresselhaus and Michael Beckett started their own 
(online-) label MirrorWorldMusic.
