Biography

Christian Morgenstern was born on the 10th of November 1975 in Düsseldorf, Germany.
Being interested in technical issues since he was a child, he bought his first Commodore Amiga when he was 15 and started interesting in graphics. Together with a classmate he founded a graphic-duo and pixelled the artwork for early computer-animated movies.
By 1994 Christian also started making music with the Amiga and produced Synthie-Pop and C-64 like tunes, only using Amiga internal samples and music capabilities (a track from that period can be heard on “Night Of The Living Death”).

In 1995 he had his first contact with synthesizers, when Elef Tsiroudis (now owner of Shokoy Records) called him and told him about a Yamaha SY85 he bought and about his plans to produce electronic music. So Christian also bought some equipment (after he worked at the local steel-melting factory) and travalled to Stuttgart. About six months later they released their first (and last) single on their own label “? Records” as Human Target. 1996 the team split, Christian bought a sample and started producing on his own. He released his first single on Important Extracts entitled “… Minus 38 And Counting…”, met Heiko Laux and gave him a demo tape containing the tracks of the “Miscellaneous EP”, that was released a month later on Kanzleramt Records.
In October 96 Christian started working at a computer-animation studio for several months, and created two experimental music clips for his tracks. 1997 he moves to Cologne and starts studying at the Academy of Media Arts.

    Ein Morgenstern im Stammheim Bilder einer besseren Zeit Vertanzt, verweht und unvergessen Wenn ich irgendwann mal zu Dir komme, will ich ordentlich Krawall hören! (Hoffentlich bekomm ich dann auch wieder den Körper eines 18Jährigen, sonst gibts Rollstuhlteckerfeschd).

    Shame he`s on so few plays. Could have come different i`d say. One artist you could buy the latest album without listening to it first and still wouldn`t be disappointed even tho it was completely different from what you heard of him before. Peace out!
