Simon-Claudius Wystrach was born in Germany in 1990. Although he had his first musical experiences taking violin lessons at a young age he became more serious about this hobby at the age of 15 when he picked up the bass guitar, later expanding his musical abilities to guitar and drums. Simon-Claudius discovered his passion for recording music when he was 17 and began building up a home recording studio. Being a self-taught audio engineer and producer, he recorded numerous local bands, mixed live concerts and worked as a general consultant for music technology.
An interest in developing his skills led Simon-Claudius to the UK in 2010 where he studied ‘Music Technology’ in the Department of Electronics at the University of York. In 2012 he was elected Vice Chair of his university’s AES Student Section. At the 134th AES Convention in May 2013 he was elected Vice Chair for Europe and International Regions of the AES Student Delegate Assembly.
Shortly after finishing his Bachelor of Science degree in June 2013, Simon-Claudius was hired by Revolution Software as the Audio Director for the development of their new multi-platform video game ‘Broken Sword: The Serpent’s Curse’.
Simon-Claudius has a wide range of professional and research interests, including programming and software engineering, human-computer interaction, source sound separation, sound design for music and visual media, sound synthesis and of course music production. Outside of his musical career, he enjoys photography and graphic design.
