b. 29 May 1937, Berlin, Germany. Schmidt studied under modern composers Karlheinz Stockhausen and Ligeti between 1957 and 1964. His classical career was put on hold when he became a founder-member of the avant garde rock band, Can, in 1968. The band's organist and synthesizer player, Schmidt made a major contribution to their groundbreaking series of albums. The band was dissolved in 1978 and Schmidt, now based in the south of France, turned to composing and recording film and television music. On many of these projects he was accompanied by fellow Can members Michael Karoli (guitar) and Jaki Liebezeit (drums). Much of his work appeared on albums issued by Spoon, a label owned by the four members of Can. Schmidt rejoined his former colleagues for the reunion album, Rite Time, in 1988. In 1993, he was commissioned to write a fantasy opera based on Mervyn Peake's Gormenghast trilogy. The three act opera, with a libretto by Duncan Fallowell, was premiered at Wuppertal Opera House on November 15 1998.
