Michael Fakesch started Designingsounds™ in 2006, though his musical career began 12 years earlier in a small town near Munich. In 1994, 19-year-old Michael co-founded the music project Funkstörung which became world renown for their remixes (e.g. Björk, Wu-Tang Clan, Lamb, Jean-Michel Jarre), being one of the first bands signed to K7 Records, and of course their outstanding visual collaborations (e.g. the DVD Isolated).
Since the termination of Funkstörung in 2005, Michael continued where Funkstörung left off, releasing more music on K7 Records, his very own label Musik Aus Strom and doing even more remixes (e.g. for Herbert, Bomb The Bass, Booka Shade or Mr Oizo). Since then he has also worked for numerous design agencies such as Zeitguised, Stink, Universal Everything, Sehsucht, Infected or Dixonbaxi doing music for BMW, Disney, Fuji, Lexus, Loewe, Peugeot, Red Bull, Sony, Subaru, Toyota, VIVA, Vodafone, Wrangler or ZDF.
2009 a Philips ad Michael did the music and sounddesign for won the Cannes Golden Lions Grand Prix, followed by two nominations the next year (for Lexus and Wrangler ads). 2011 he did the music for the MTV European Music Awards which led into several follow up jobs for MTV.
