ABOUT/
SHORT BIO

Schneider TM is a multidimensional music project by Dirk Dresselhaus that oscillates extensively between adventurous electronic pop music and experimental, sometimes improvised freeform music while occasionally bringing these and other opposing elements together.

Schneider TM has been operating since the mid-90s and has released some albums on City Slang / Mute, including singles like Reality Check, Frogtoise, or a cover version of a song by The Smiths called The Light 3000, a collaboration with Kptmichigan that was hugely acclaimed by the alternative media (like John Peel, The Wire, etc.), which have made him credited as one of the main innovators of a music genre called Indietronic.

Since 1997, Schneider TM has performed a couple of hundreds of live concerts around the globe, including renowned international festivals like CTM (Berlin), Sonar Festival / Sonar Sound (Barcelona, Rome, Tokyo), Roskilde-Festival (DK), Mutek (Montreal, Mexico City), Arty Farty (Lyon), Pukkelpop (Hasselt), Hultsfred Festival (Hultsfred), Kilbi Festival (Bad Bonn), Frieze Art Fair / Frieze Music (London), Phonem Festival (Istanbul), Numero Festival (Lisboa), Les Siestes électroniques festival (Toulouse), Melt Festival (Gräfenhainichen), Midi Festival (Hyéres), Motomix Festival (Sao Paolo), Todaysart Festival (Den Haag), Dark Mofo (Hobart), and others.

Next to composing music for films, radio plays, and theater, Dirk is active in noise and drone outfits like (die) Angel (w/ Ilpo Väisänen of Pan sonic and guests like Hildur Gudnadottir, Oren Ambarchi, BJ Nilsen, or Lucio Capece) with releases on Editions Mego, Karlrecords, or Edition Telemark.

After expanding Schneider TM in the direction of instantly composed freeform music, employing varying equipment like processed guitar, modular electronics and sound objects as well as field recordings, this rather abstract and soundscape-y approach resulted in a series of album releases like Construction Sounds, Guitar Sounds, or Con-Struct, a posthumous collaboration with Conrad Schnitzler (all on Bureau B), as well as the experimental guitar double album Ereignishorizont (Karlrecords, 2023) and collaborations with artists like Jochen Arbeit (of Einstürzende Neubauten), Damo Suzuki (ex-Can), Werner ‘Zappi’ Diermaier (faust), Elena Poulou, John Duncan, Chandra Shukla, Scot Jenerik, Günter Schickert, Sicker Man, Joanna Dudley, Werner Durand, Reinhold Friedl, video artists like Lillevan and Takehito Koganezawa, or Japanese dancer Tomoko Nakasato and others.

In 2007, Dirk Dresselhaus and Michael Beckett (Kptmichigan) founded MirrorWorldMusic, an online platform with bandcamp for back catalog and download-only releases to showcase the past, present and future of their work, which gradually expanded into a publishing imprint as well as an extensive archive for related artists, projects and bands.

Solo or as group, Schneider TM has performed a couple of hundreds live concerts around the globe including renowned international festivals like CTM (Berlin), Sonar (Barcelona, Rome, Tokyo), Mutek (Montreal, Mexico City), Roskilde-Festival (DK), and many others.

Dirk Dresselhaus’ rather unusual musical methods like e.g. the combination of electroacoustic guitars with modular electronics have practically led him to explore unknown territory on each new release, solo or in diverse short- and long-term collaborations and projects with the likes of Ilpo Väisänen
(die Angel, ex-Pan sonic), Zappi W Diermaier (Faust), Reinhold Friedl (zeitkratzer), Oren Ambarchi, Hildur Guðnadóttir, BJ Nilsen, Lucio Capece, Elena Poulou (ex-The Fall), Damo Suzuki (ex-Can), John Duncan (LAFMS), Conrad Schnitzler, Jochen Arbeit & Andrew Unruh (Einstürzende Neubauten) as well as to numerous works in the field of film music, radio plays, (performance-) theater, contemporary dance and general studio production.

Since 1997 Schneider TM performed a couple of hundreds live concerts around the globe including renowned international festivals like CTM (Berlin), Sonar (Barcelona, Rome, Tokyo), Mutek (Montreal, Mexico City), Pukkelpop (Hasselt), Hultsfred Festival (Hultsfred), Frieze Art Fair (London), Phonem Festival (Istanbul), Les Siestes Électroniques (Toulouse), Melt Festival (Gräfenhainichen), Midi Festival (Hyéres), Motomix Festival (Sao Paolo), Todaysart Festival (Den Haag) and more.

For a while now, Dirk has also been moving Schneider TM in the direction of instantly composed freeform music, employing varying equipment like processed guitar & sound objects as well as field recordings and collaborating with artists like Jochen Arbeit (of Einstürzende Neubauten), Damo Suzuki (ex-Can), Werner ‘Zappi’ Diermaier (faust), Günter Schickert, video artists like Lillevan and Takehito Koganezawa or Japanese dancer Tomoko Nakasato. This rather abstract & soundscape-y approach resulted in a series of album releases like ‘Construction Sounds’, ‘Guitar Sounds’ or ‚‘Con-Struct’, a posthumous collaboration with Conrad Schnitzler on Bureau B.

In 2007 MirrorWorldMusic, an online-platform with bandcamp for back catalogue & download only releases was started by Dirk Dresselhaus and Michael Beckett (Kptmichigan) to present past, present & future of their works.
