My name is Ansgar Stock, I´m a 10 years old boy from Germany. Besides the normal things kids do I have something special. I´m composing electronic music and so I´m likely the world´s youngest electronic musician.|

Musically I like to combine classic electronic music in the style of Jean Michel Jarre, Tangerine Dream and Kraftwerk with various other influences like Techno, Rock, Pop, etc.
At the age of 6 I decided to start playing synthesizers. By doing household chores and saving money and Dad buying second hand instruments for me I managed to establish a small home studio.
From 2016 to 2019 I composed and recorded a dozen pieces of music and played live several times in school and at small festivals. I also had the great honour to compose a long track of music together with Tommy Betzler who is the former drummer of electronic music legend Klaus Schulze.
Special thanks to:

Ron Boots for making this album release possible,
Thomas "Tommy" Betzler for drumming on Floating Minds,
