Before he became more active in electronic music around 1997 with his project Schneider TM (City Slang, Mute, Earsugar), which is responsible for a couple of experimental electro-freak-pop albums and mini-hits like Reality Check or a coverversion of a song by The Smiths called The Light 3000.
The track is an electronic music cover of “There Is a Light That Never Goes Out” by the Smiths and was recently voted by The Wire magazine as one of the best cover versions ever recorded.
Next to many one-off projects like composing and recording music for movies, theater or radioplays, he plays & records with freeform noise-projects like Angel (w/ Ilpo Väisänen of Pan sonic) and Mr. Schmuck’s Farm (w/ Hildur Gudnadottir) on a regular basis. Due to the brilliant economical situation in the music industry, Dirk Dresselhaus and Michael Beckett started their own indielabel MirrorWorldMusic in 2007.
