Markus Reuter is a music producer, composer, performer, and creative educator with international credentials and a vast discography.
Reuter's work as a recording artist, solo performer, and collaborator spans (and frequently fuses) electrophonic loop music, contemporary classical music, progressive and art rock, industrial music, world jazz, jazz fusion, pop songs, and pure improvisation. Over the course of a two-decade career, he has been a member of multiple bands, ensembles, and projects (including Stick Men, Tuner, The Crimson ProjeKCt, and Europa String Choir) as well as a solo artist. Since 2011 Reuter has established himself as a contemporary classical composer, starting with the performance and recording of his large-scale orchestral piece Todmorden 513.
Markus joined Spotlight On host Lawrence Peryer to talk about his latest project, Mata Atlantica and their debut album, Retiro E Ritmo (7D Media). Using contributions by many brilliant musicians (plus vivid tropical field recordings), Reuter has created a sonic collage that attempts to recreate the acoustic texture of the endangered Mata Atlantica biotope.
