Oskar Schuster's purely instrumental music is at times reminiscent of Amélie, evoking an atmosphere that reminds one of France, Paris, Valses and musette music. Several times referred to as "the german Yann Tiersen", his music is still very distinct, arising from a mixture of various influences including experimental electronic music (Aphex Twin, Pogo), the minimalist folk-pop of Beirut, the ethereal and mystical sounds of Sigur Rós as well as classical piano music by Robert Schumann and Frédéric Chopin.
Oskar Schuster grew up near Munich and studied musicology, philosophy and computer science. In 2009 he abandoned his studies and moved to Berlin. In 2011 he released his debut album, Dear Utopia, followed 2012 by the piano solo EP Les Valses Invisibles and 2014 by his second full length album, Sneeuwland.
