Since the late 80’s Dirk Dresselhaus is active in different musical fields. From 1989 until 1997 he played and sang in indie-noiserock and -pop bands like Locust Fudge or Hip Young Things.
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.
