Felix Kubin (born Felix Knoth; 1969 in Hamburg, West Germany) is an electronic musician. He has been involved with music since he was 8 years old, when he studied piano, organ and glockenspiel. His youthful experiments took off in 1980 when he got a Korg MS-20 synthesizer. His early works have been released under the title The Tetchy Teenage Tapes of Felix Kubin.[1] During this time he also played in a punk band Die Egozentrischen 2. In 1987 Felix Kubin co-founded an experimental noise group Klangkrieg with Tim Buhre. His first solo album Filmmusik was released in 1998 by Gagarin Records,[2] Kubin's own label founded in the same year through which he has gone on to release a series of albums including the critically acclaimed Matki Wandalki in 2004.[3]

Kubin regularly collaborates on theatrical and animation productions, writes radio plays[4] and is a self-described dadaist. His musical influences include contemporary classics such as Karlheinz Stockhausen and György Ligeti, as well as groups such as Kraftwerk and DAF.
