Ulrich Müller

My career as a musician began back in the late seventies when I was in my early twenties. As a classical and rock guitar player I had the good fortune of becoming a session player and since then I have been excited about studio work.
Parallel to my studies of musicology and composition I began to work with computers, experienced the almost lunatic Atari-wave, took advantage of looking over the shoulders of some very skilled sound engineers and began to dive into any aspect of electronic music, from composition to mixing and mastering. Fortunately I also had some great teachers and mentors like Josef Anton Riedl who was a pioneer of electroacoustic music and former artistic director of the famous Siemens-Studio for Electronic Music.

In 1991 I had the opportunity to write a broadcast for the music department of the Bayerischer Rundfunk (ARD) and have continued to write and produce broadcasts about classical and contemporary music. In 1995 I was a guest artist at the Institute for Music and Acoustics of the ZKM / Center for Art and Media (Karlsruhe) and in 1998 I cofounded the ensemble 48nord, which today is an internationally successful collective of composers, producers and musicians, based around my long term colleagues Sigi Rössert and Patrick Schimanski and myself.

Beyond 48nord´s work in the field of concertante electroacoustic music, we have also produced a variety of radioplays (particularly for Deutschlandradio Kultur / Berlin) and the music for dance productions of the Dresden Frankfurt Dance Company, the Semperoper Dresden, The Israeli Opera, the Nederlands Dans Theater, the Sydney Dance Company, the Royal Danish Ballet, The Australian Ballet, the Bavarian State Opera and many many more. Most of these were in collaboration with Jacopo Godani, the internationally acclaimed choreographer and artistic director of the Dresden Frankfurt Dance Company.

For more than 20 years I have been affiliated with Kochan & Partner, one of Germany´s leading agencies for corporate identity, corporate design and digital branding (amongst other services), to which I accredit my insights into the tasks and challenges of current communication work.

Over the years my work has been awarded with prizes and scholarships and I have also had the pleasure of lecturing at  universities such as the Berlin University of the Arts and the University of Television and Film Munich. Now, after many years of traveling, I have settled down at the beautiful Lake Starnberg, not far from the Bavarian capital, Munich, and it is here that I founded „The Electric Pit“.
