Biography

Music has always been at the focus of Peter Kaminski's life. Born in 1958 Peter was developing devices for music electronics while still studying: the world's first commercial MIDI interface and the world's first MIDI sequencer software. He was also involved in the development of the first electronic 12-bit e-drum, the Vortrax for Florian Schneider from Kraftwerk, and in designing the world's first hard disk recording systems. Subsequently he built a modular synthesizer system for his personal use.

In the 1980's he contributed a number of songs to the International Electronic Music Association (IEMA) Collective Tapes series. His album "Synthesis" was released in 1984, covering different musical genres ranging from ambient to classical to electro pop. The track "Compudrive" was especially successful and could be found on various Electronic Music Sampler albums. In the 1990's he moved from the Ruhr area to Hamburg. Playing in "Armed Response", a duo with Non-Eric (Hans Jörg Bordin) Peter's music became a bit more pop-heavy.
