Kristian Schultze
Kristian (* 1945) grew up in Hamburg, Rio de Janeiro and Berlin, and got his musical education at Konservatorium and Musikhochschule Berlin, Wiener Akademie and Jazzschool Graz. He moved to München in 1968, where he worked as composer, arranger, producer and musician for various artists, for movies, television and theater.
 
As a keyboard player, he joined Doldinger's Passport in 1973. They toured Asia, the United States, Australia, Brazil, and Germany. In 1977, he left the band and played in the group "Snowball" with Curt Cress (drums), Dave King (bass guitar) and Roy Albrighton, the former lead singer with NEKTAR.
 
In 1979, Kristian and Michael Holm started the studio project "Cusco". In 1985, he and his wife Birgid moved to the Bavarian countryside, where he continued to work as a composer, arranger, sound designer and keyboard-soloist for dozens of national and international artists. From 1986, Kristian studied computer theory, learned some computer languages, and became a beta tester for software companies in Germany. From 1988, Kristian practiced meditation techniques, and from 1990 until 1993 he was a student in breath therapy. Kristian passed away in November 2011.
