In parallel to his partnership with Dorfmeister, Peter Kruder has always followed his solo projects. After the Kruder and Dorfmeister releases "DJ Kicks" (!K7, 1996) and "K&D Sessions" (!K7, 1998) became global bestsellers, he followed up with his solo project Peace Orchestra. Peace Orchestra is also the title of an album recorded by Kruder and released to critical acclaim in 1999. The album's most well-known track is "Who Am I", which received a great deal of exposure through its use in The Wachowskis' Animatrix project alongside tracks by Photek, Death in Vegas and Juno Reactor. It was also used in the movies Stay (2005), and Memento (Christopher Nolan, 2000).
An album of Peace Orchestra remixes by such artists as Gotan Project, Chateau Flight, Beanfield, DJ DSL and Trüby Trio was released in 2002, entitled Reset. In addition to releasing under the "Peace Orchestra" moniker Peter Kruder´s solo remixes were in demand by artists like Bebel Gilberto, Fauna Flash and various other artists. With Fauna Flash - Munich DJs and producers Christian Prommer and Roland Appel - Kruder kicked off the Voom:Voom project in 2001.
