Biography

Torsten Fassbender was born in a small and placid German town. He first started using computers at the age of 12. Thanks to his parents he had the chance to learn how to play the guitar and the piano. Due to his playful approach to the world of music and electronics he soon discovered his love and passion for electronic music. His favorite
artists at that time were Kraftwerk, Jean Michael Jarre and Vangelis. Several years later he was introduced to a program called “Soundtracker” on the Commodore Amiga and was instantly hooked. This program, created by Karsten Obarski, gave him the tools he needed to start creating his own music using a computer. From 1984 until 1998 he composed and arranged many soundtracks and in-game-effects for various games and demos. Encouraged by this line of work Torsten began to build his own home-studio und was eventually introduced to the possibilities of MIDI. From then on he finally had the means to realize his musical ideas the way he wanted them to be. When Torsten heard one of the first techno songs on a party in Belgium he knew this was the style he had always been looking for. Therefore he expanded his equipment and worked on his first tracks, driven completely by MIDI synthesizers. His first releases followed in 1994 with different labels all across Europe.
