Künstler Treu

Real Name:
Achim Treu
Was born way back in the sixties as the only child of a southern-german ship's entrepreneur and a polish courtesan. Childhood and pre-school musical education aboard "uschi" on inland waterways - first transistor radio given for sixth birthday & spends daytimes on deck while the portable plays a (beat-) soundtrack to the post-war/pre-kohl landscapes passing by. early musical influences: the monks, alice cooper, breuni-bear radio plays, deutschlandradio and traditional balinese gamelan music. Youth spent in a small southern-german town. first contact with multitrack recording and tapeloops. private tooltime-sessions with two old revox A77s. result: tapeloops & la frippertronics. heros of the time: can, neu! and other committed non-musicians such as brian eno. 80ies: his first synthesizer (korg MS20), his first beatbox (roland TR-606), his first computer (atari 1040), his first girlfriend (margarethe). Since 1985: founding member of dauerfisch. numerous releases on numerous tape, underground, mailorder, and mini/micro labels until 1990. Since a 1989 move to berlin: several dauerfisch side-projects begun (sea of tranquility, the LaLaVox Box, Nicoletta, the space songs). Since 1997: preferred residence for inspiration and composing - oahu/hawaii. can be found there as often as time and money will allow.
