Markus Reuter is a producer, musician, composer & sound designer.
Born in 1972, Markus initially trained as a pianist before switching to guitar in the late 80's, and subsequently touch guitar in 1993. Soon after, he developed a unique skill for improvised composition, often employing loop-based technology in order to push the envelope of solo performance. In his teenage years, Markus studied music theory and composition with Karlheinz Straetmanns, in the tradition of Paul Hindemith & Harald Genzmer. In his twenties, he spent time with Daniel Schell studying his very special compositional techniques as well as some Indian music (with Ashok Pathak). Markus' technique as an instrumentalist and performer is largely based on studying Guitar Craft with Robert Fripp and Tony Geballe from 1991 - 1998.
Markus was aligned to several eclectic bands such as Europa String Choir, and String Unit (with Zoltan Lantos), both in the studio and live arena, as well as maintaining an ongoing relationship with electronic musician Ian Boddy - which has to date produced 4 albums and 2 virtual musical instruments.
