Yapacc biography

"Age 14 I bought my first analog synth: a Korg MS-20. Nobody had something like that in school, neither was hardly anybody around interested in electronic music. I scrammed in my room to build my first tracks on the Revox A77, using the Korg, a Roland organ and a Rattlesnake rhythm machine, track by track and mono - a fantastic, lonely periode. Seven years before I played the piano, thus belong to the few who lived through minimalism at an early stage, for I played the same patterns over and over again for hours... yapacc founded the project Elektrasmus with Holger Schmidt and launched the 'Weisskirchener Electronic Festival'. After having taken extensive live and studio session excursions, they finally signed to Maelstrom Records in 1997. In the same year Elektrasmus was one of the Techno acts to pioneer internet live streaming (at 'Dokumenta X', Kassel/D). They signed to Maelstrom Records in 1997. A release on Poets Club Recording ("Inside 02" w/Brian Eno, Peter Schwalm, Funkstoerung, Shantel, among others) followed in 1998 using the psydonym "the dragonfly". yapacc started a net art label in 1999 and produced film scores for expressionistic silent movie classics, three CDs are released. In 2001 he founded Voiceheads together with Juergen Klumpe a duo interweaving guitar drones and textures with vocoded voice, blending Downbeat Techno structures with Hippiespace Psychedelics on a high intensity level. During that time yapacc met Dr. Walker of Air Liquide with whom he cultivates a steady friendship and production team until today (Helden der Revolution). Apart from having become a steady member of James Dean Brown's notorious Narcotic Syntax on the popular Perlon label, he syndicated Studiogemeinschaft (Studio Community) with the inspirational DJ Franklin de Costa to create a uniquely syncopated Tech style. The collaboration with Miriam Schulte, Bo Irion and Franklin resulted in the actual Party community "The Green Empire" who have done several partys and radio shows. The amicable climate between Good Groove, one of Germany's DJ institutions, and yapacc after having met in summer 2005 is reflected in common music productions on multiColor Recordings and Tresor. Last not least yapacc works as product designer and demonstrator for Manfred Fricke (MFB, Berlin) who fabricates fine small synths, drum machines and vj tools for a low budget.
