Markus Reuter is a German multi-disciplinary musician, composer, record producer and instrument designer.
In 1991, at the age of 18, Reuter attended Robert Fripp’s Guitar Craft. He has been a member of multiple bands, including centrozoon, Stick Men, Tuner, The Crimson ProjeKct and Europa String Choir.
A specialist in touch guitar playing, Reuter became known as a leading player of the Warr Guitar and Chapman Stick during the 1990s and 2000s before developing and marketing his own U8 and U10 Touch Guitar instruments. In collaboration with former King Crimson member Trey Gunn, he runs the Touch Guitar Circle, a teaching and support network for touch guitar players.
The majority of Reuter’s solo releases have consisted of ambient textured music using heavily-effected touch guitar, Warr Guitar or Chapman Stick, plus laptop. A number of these albums have been released on Bandcamp.
