"Some of Dirk Dresselhaus' favourite music includes The Velvet Underground, Sonic Youth, Richard D. James, Autechre, Sun Ra, Shuggie Otis and Daniel Johnston. One of his particular favourites is Neil Young's 1982 album Trans, where nearly everything was played through a vocoder. 'It's definitely one of my main influences for doing the Schneider TM stuff. It's a really strange record, really great.' Schneider TM's acclaimed second album Zoomer was recorded in Dirk's Berlin living room studio and released on the City Slang label in September 2002. Since then he has travelled Zoomer around the world with a 3-piece band comprising of longtime friends and collaborators Kpt Michigan and Christian Obermaier. 'The way I do music, for example, it's very much a reflection of life. Basically it's folk music I would say. From the main vibe, telling strange fluid stories about whatever and everything you see, or I see, or we see or whatever, somehow affects the music very much. It's difficult to do political music but music is more often alternative to politics because music connects people so well.' There are many more stories, have a listen."
