Noisedude aka Rainer Serr started his musical experience as a drummer in Stuttgart, Germany through Doug Hammond as one of his teachers. He developed music and sounddesign with guitar and synthesizers.


Later he went to Los Angeles to support the family of the jewish photographer Bruno Bernard, who escaped from Germany in 1938. Rainer was responsible to market Bernards historical photos of Marilyn Monroe. In L.A. he supported Janet Jackson at the shootings of her videos for her album Rhythm Nation. Back in Europe he has been working for record companies like ECM Records in Munich, where he has been surrounded with jazz and classical artists like Keith Jarrett, Chick Corea or Arvo Pärt. In Munich he was active as a screenwriter for TV and score composer for TV and commercials as well. Now he is living in Zurich, Switzerland. Hiking and writing in a alpine hut influences his present music to reduce and focus on the important elements.

A new EP is in preparation and will be released in 2021

The initial album PARALLELS got a tremendous feedback throughout the community. Fried Dähn, a leading cello player from Reutlingen in Germany, plays on this album as well. Fried has been cellist at Ensemble Modern from Frankfurt where he had the possibility to work with Frank Zappa. His own projects include collaborations with Markus Stockhausen.
