N. U. Unruh (born Andrew Chudy on June 9, 1957, in New York City, U.S.) is a German musician, experimental percussionist, and instruments inventor, probably best known for his work with German music group Einstürzende Neubauten.


In 1980, N. U. Unruh was a co-founder of the famous German band Einstürzende Neubauten, together with his school friend Blixa Bargeld. For over 30 years, both are the long-time band members. N. U. Unruh usually plays on self-constructed percussion and drum instruments.

In 2000, Unruh released his first and only solo album, Euphorie im Zeitalter der digitalen Informationsübertragung[1] ("Euphoria in the era of digital data transfer").

He is also a member of the band Bombus (not be confused with the Swedish band of the same name), which describes itself as "electronic dance music combined with drummers, performers, and DJs".

In 2004 Unruh released his "12 Ambiences Airshow" DVD.

Eponymy: Unruhdinium,[2] a dinophyte taxon
