International Festival of Digital Creativity and Electronic Music

Uwe Schmidt is a multiple personality complex. His voluminous resume of artist names and guises has voiced a huge sweep of different musical ideas and concepts. These days, in the interest of identity coherence, he houses most of his varied output under the Atom™ moniker. Fascinated equally with the avant garde and the popular, he also finds the past as inspirational as the future – they are both “alien” imaginaries to draw from – and all of these “clashes” are reflected in his takes on classical, jazz, Latin, electronic dance and other machine musics.

With a career spanning more than 30 years he has witnessed generations of changes in music technology and possibilities, maintaining an unbelievable standard for his own output and creativity. Along with his restless experimental tendencies, he continues to demonstrate his uncommon knowledge of contemporary techno with masterful recent live sets alongside Tobias Freund at MUTEK Montréal and Mexico last year, as well as solo performances around the world.
