Philipp Quehenberger was born in Innsbruck, grew up in Tyrol, Seattle and Newcastle. He discovered his love for electronic music in his father's studio and started playing the piano and fooling around with synthesizers. Played in local bands of various styles, ranging from Death-Metal to Rock. In 1994 he started performing alone and moved to Vienna, where he kept his head above water with piano lessons. His old-fashioned equipment didn‘t keep him away from recording great EPs on Labels like Cheap, Ego Vacuum or Taliban Records and two albums: „Phantom in Paradise“ on Editions Mego and „Hazard“ on Laton. Continuous collaboration with drummer ddkern (Fuckhead/Wipe Out/Bulbul) as Quehenberger/Kern. He often collaborates with other artists like Ilpo Väisänen (Pan Sonic), Alexei Borisov (F.R.U.I.T.S.), Mark Stewart, Mayo Thompson (The Red Krayola) or Patrick Pulsinger. Appeared as a Studiomusican for DJ Hell. Played his powerful unbeatable live-acts of rocking electronica at big international music festivals like Sonar (Barcelona), Avanto (Helsinki), Mutek (Montreal), Club Transmediale (Berlin), Dom (Moscow).
