Biography[edit]

Claus Noreen was born in Charlottenlund, near Copenhagen. Before he seriously started making music, he had always wanted to become a chemist. Other than school, one of his biggest interests was electropop music.[citation needed]Hence, he bought a pair of keyboards and started playing industrial techno.

When he finished school he started to work in his sisters' clothing store. The work in the store inspired him and influenced his style of music. In 1989, he met Søren Rasted and moved his music instrument to his residence.

Claus married Danish journalist Siggy Norreen (née Madsen) in 2001.[1] Their son Elliott was born in February 2003. The couple have since separated.[2]
