Let's Get To Know Morphoice

1- Where did you grow up?

I grew up near Stuttgart, in the bloody south of Germany, and enjoyed one of those classic geek kids childhoods, where we would build boats, rockets, or spaceships in the neighbor's back yard, much to our parent's displeasure.

2- What is one of the first songs you remember liking as a kid?

My earliest music memories date back to around 1985 where hits like "Take On Me" or "Maria Magdalena" left a lasting impression. I come from a very musical family, however, my taste of 80s pop was never very much aligned with theirs. Later things like Enigma's MCMXC and The KLF had me. Pretty much the entire early MTV as soon as we got cable television.

3- What influenced you to get into music?

I was more or less forced to learn the piano at an early age, but it wasn't until I got a cheesy electronic keyboard (Casio CT-350), that I really got into music and composition. At least at that point my parents somehow saw some potential and upgraded me to a Yamaha PSR 500 one day, which had a decent selection of sounds and a sequencer. Of course, it sounded trashy but as a kid, it was absolute awesomeness.

4- At what age did you start playing/singing?
