Steffan de Turck (aka staplerfahrer) has been a sound-artist since the nineties and lives and works in Tilburg, The Netherlands. In the early nineties he started creating “noise-machines” by circuit bending turntables, amplifiers, radios and other audio equipment. In 1995, he started releasing this noise using the project-name “aMP”. 2003 saw a change of name into “staplerfahrer” bringing with it a change in sound: less harsh rhythmic noise gives way to elements of microsound, field recording, drone and musique concrete. Since 2005, staplerfahrer has been performing extensively solo and with various groups all around Europe and in the USA.
