Christian Althaus

Musician & Producer

I am Christian Althaus from Bochum, musician and producer. I never learned to play an instrument, but I knew about computers and programming very well since computers are a mass product (I programmed with a friend adventures for Ariolasoft for C64 and Atari ST and Amiga). One day in 1996 I experienced a live electronic techno party in cologne that impressed me so much, that I immediately decided to do electronic music. From scratch I taught myself everything about DAW, Synthesizers, Samplers, sound engineering etc. So, while studying German Language and theory of education at the Ruhr Universität Bochum (with a degree Magister Artium ´99) I began producing electronic Music. I wrote my master´s thesis (“Aesthetic of new Technologies”) while I was producing my first solo Record (Sähkö Records). Both – the theory and the real work with the “new technology” have benefited from each other very well.
