The first thing I remember musically was a LP with Zulu Chants from South Africa which I discovered when I was 6 years old. I watched the photographs of the Zulu warriors and was fascinated by their music. This was at a time when the term “World music” didn´t even exist.

I started to work on the Ikarus project back in 1995, after years of studying music, making first experiences in performing & producing. Inspired by vast journeys and all sorts of ethnic music, I started to combine Electronic Chill Out tracks with sounds & vocals from all over the planet.

With the assistance of in 1999, Ikarus got the chance to reach a wider audience, work together with musicians over the internet and to sell my CD´s worldwide.
Encouraged by the incredible resonance from listeners and excellent chart positions on, Ikarus released his official debut album titled “Ikarus-Touch the sun” on Sonic Images Records/Earthtone Records in january 2001, after being discovered by the A&R manager of Sonic Images Records on
