Am Anfang ( in the beginning ) is from German musician Mario Schönwälder.
He was born in 1960 in Berlin. In 1984 he created his first electronic experiments with a KORG MS 20 synthesizer.
As of 1988 he had a contract with Bernd Kistenmachers Label Musique Intemporelle. After the second CD he stopped with this label and started his own label Manikin Records on which about 100 productions have been released, including titles by Ashra, Klaus Schulze, Spyra, Rainbow Serpent, Broekhuis, Keller & Schönwälder, and many others.
He has performed many concerts as a solo-artist, with the duo Keller & Schönwälder, with the trio Broekhuis, Keller & Schönwälder and together with Thomas Fanger. Am Anfang can be found on the cd Arcanum & Friends Klangraum II.
