I'm a guitarist and electronic composer living in Kuerten, Germany - just a mile from Karlheinz Stockhausen's home, one of the epicenters of the world's musical avantgarde.

Since the beginning of my musical life, I was never interested in conventional music. It was the new sound worlds that I was after. Starting out as a young guitarist many years ago, I was influenced not by the mainstream but by guitarists who made unusual music with their instruments. Later I took some Guitar Craft lessons with Robert Fripp (of King Crimson), played in Guitar Craft influenced groups, and did some experimenting with electronics and loop delays.

I released a CD with electronic guitar loop improvisations called 'Escape Veloopity' in the late nineties on a small German label.

Since then, I played guitar in several free improvisation bands and got more involved with computer music.

In 2000, I did a musical online diary that featured a 10 second sound or song for each day.
The MY2K project is still online - click the link on my homepage.

In 2002, I released an ambient album called 'Stretched Landscape #1' on the British burn-on-demand label burningshed.com.

"A continuous suite of processed piano and textures, German composer Michael Peters (primarily, a guitarist) has produced a beguiling work worthy of comparison with the best of Brian Eno's Ambient output. Evocative, emotional and chilled."

Stretched Landscape contained treated field recordings and acoustic piano music, turned into something completely alien by a technique called Granular Synthesis. At the moment, I'm looking forward to the even more promising new sound worlds waiting in my new Kyma/Capybara system ...
