Michael Fakesch started DESIGNINGSOUNDS™ in 2006, though his musical career began 12 years earlier. In 1994, Michael co-founded the music project Funkstörung which became world renown for their remixes (e.g. Björk, Wu-Tang Clan), being one of the first bands signed to K7 Records, and of course theiroutstanding 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 (e.g. the album dos) and doing even more remixes (e.g. for Herbert, Bomb The Bass, Booka Shade). And as if that weren’t enough on the plate, Michael also starting dabbling in the more corporate side of things by designing sound and music for the advertising industry. In 2008, he even began giving lectures about sound design at university. Busy times!

He conceives the art direction and the visual identity of brands and diverse projects related to music, fashion, contemporary art, cinema. His strength lies in his ability to work with artistic and cultural institutions just as well with big advertising companies.
Being always on the look-out for new technics and inspirations, he likes to come closer and converse directly with the artists, so that he can enrich his own graphical and artistic world.
