In 1994, Michael co-founded the music project Funkstörung which became world renown for their remixes (e.g. Björk, Wu-Tang Clan), being one of the first bands signed to K7 Records, and of course their outstanding visual collaborations (e.g. with Designers Republic or the DVD 'Isolated'). Since the termination of Funkstörung in 2005, Michael continued where Funkstörung left off, releasing more music on K7 Records (e.g. the album 'dos') and doing even more remixes (e.g. for Herbert, Bomb The Bass, Booka Shade). In 2008, he even began giving lectures about sound design at university.
