Faber is a music project from Northern Germany. The man behind Faber is the musician Ronald Schmidt. After a few years of accordion and Hammond organ lessons at the beginning of the 1970s his great passion for electronic music began when he first heard Wendy Carlos and Tomita in 1972. In the year 1973 the first synthesizer, a Roland SH 1000, was acquired. The first recordings with an old tube tape recorder with multi playback procedure were made.
After graduating as an engineer of physical technology Faber has increased his recording studio since the early eighties. Today the recording studio with the exception of a Kurzweil K2000 and a Korg
MicroX - is software based and the music is realized with a PC and many software synths.
The musical influences for Faber are Tangerine Dream, Mike Oldfield, Klaus Schulze and Wendy Carlos. Faber, however, is at home in many musical styles. They range from spacemusic, lounge and chillout
to world music.
