About us

Arjen Schat

With over 100 releases, appearances, remixes and collaborations on almost every imaginable form of media, Arjen Schat has been active in the field of electronic music under numerous monikers since the late 90s. The music released under his birth name came to life in 2006 when he started to build his studio and made extensive use of analog synthesizers. Inspired by Klaus Schulze’s “Linzer Stahlsinfonie” and Tangerine Dream’s “Live At Coventry Cathedral” (and especially by Christopher Franke’s live sequencing), Arjen has been tailoring the Berlin-school sound to his own unique sonic identity.

Besides recording and performing, Arjen teaches synthesis and audio engineering, and also maintains a YouTube channel publishing music and demonstration videos.
