Born in Germany, Edgar Rothermich studied music and sound engineering at the prestigious Tonmeister program at the University of Arts in Berlin where he graduated in 1989 with a Master's Degree.

For the past 20 years Edgar has had a successful musical partnership with electronic music pioneer and founding Tangerine Dream member Christopher Franke. Recently, in addition to his collaboration with Christopher,  Edgar has been working with other artists as well as on his own projects. 

In 2010 he started to release his solo records in the "Why Not …" series with different styles and genres. The current releases are "Why Not Electronica", "Why Not Electronica Again", "Why Not Solo Piano" and "Why Not 90s Electronica". This previously unreleased album was produced in 1991/1992 by Christopher Franke. All albums are available on Amazon and iTunes including the latest release in 2012, the re-recording of the Blade Runner Soundtrack

In addition to composing music, Edgar Rothermich is writing technical manuals with a unique style, focusing on rich graphics and diagrams to explain concepts and functionality of software applications under his popular GEM series (Graphically Enhanced Manuals).
