Michael Schulze attended the School of Music at The University of Illinois, Urbana Champaign,  one of the first and most important centers of electronic music research and composition in the world.  In the Experimental Music Studios he learned modular analog synthesis on a Buchla Series 200 system and digital synthesis on the NED Synclavier.
In 1993 Michael introduced the first audio engineering course ever offered at the Oberlin Conservatory of Music, and taught that course for 10 years.  While at Oberlin he was a consultant for the AT&T Shannon Research Labs (Florham Park, NJ) assisting in their development of the Advanced Audio Codec (AAC).  He also produced and engineered many CD recordings of internationally recognized classical and world music soloists and ensembles.
In 2003 Michael joined the faculty of the Lamont School of Music, University of Denver, where he founded and now directs a 4 year Bachelor of Music degree in Recording and Production.  He also teaches electronic music synthesis.
As a composer, Michael has collaborated with choreographers Amy Earnest and Lance Hardin of Boulder Ballet.  Together the trio continues to create new works incorporating electronic music and dance.
