Steffen was an electric bass player for years when he felt that there was something more to the tuning of instruments than just standard pitch. He discovered the cosmic octave and decided to study the profound effects of alternate tuning systems on the mood of human beings.
As it seemed to be easier to generate exact pitches in electronic production environments he found himself attending a complete Ableton live course synchronistically meeting a crystal singing bowl player looking for help with his setup. Thus Steffen joined Carlos Michael to gain experience in sound-diving™ sessions hosted in yoga studios around Germany. Applying astronomical tuning data to sound meditation, witnessing it’s effects on people and getting their feedback approved his conviction of it’s efficacy on the human psyche.
That is why he decided to continue his dive into the digital realms of sound creation and started studying Audiodesign B.A. at HdpK Berlin.
During his ongoing semesters he would get connected to a voluntary network of electronic musicians – the Ableton User Group – and meet Timo. Inviting him to sound-diving™ and demonstrating the power of pure, cosmically tuned sine wave frequencies established the basis of their musical companionship.
Besides pushing the boarders in the realm of alternately tuned electronic music with Timo, Steffen is currently working on his B.A. thesis in cooperation with the neurological department of Unfallklinikum Berlin to provide scientific evidence to their approach.
