2_115089In 1974 Marcus Schmahl, also known by its chill out, downbeat & electronica Projects Guardner and Rauschfaktor, was born in Mainz, Germany. He began with the age of 14 as a “computer and electronic freak” to use his computer hardware as a musical instrument and to produce first electronic tracks with it – in addition to his classical guitar training. Marcus has developed his own way to write music and to perform it live or as a DJ. Thus the foundation was laid to form his own production company, which also was influenced by video production activity and photography. With his albums for the project Guardner he led the German chill out charts for months and he was hired as a remixer for major music projects. Today his music catalog is regularly used by TV producers / directors. In 2000, Marcus produced his first film score for a TV series of the ARD (Germany) with a team.

Berkstroem was founded in 2008 because the new music layouts didn’t fit to Marcus’ other projects. The project will approach a greater audience and is also a musical evolution of Marcus Schmahl. He will work with many guest musicians and producers on the forthcoming Berkstroem album to have as many musical styles and working methods combined to a musical production.
