Before Irmin founded the now legendary German band CAN in 1968, he received a formal musical education and studied composition, piano, conducting and music ethnology.

Schmidt's sound-journeys combine what is usually opposed: Rock, Pop, Jazz, Classic, Electronic, Ambient, Drum'n' Bass, Walz, Oriental... He is a musical alchemist. The unusual paths Schmidt choses for his compositions were celebrated in 2010, when the  prestigious Festival "Ludwigsburger Schlossfestspielen"  presented a gala evening in his honor. Schmidt conducted the Orchestra of the Schlossfestspiele and presented a selection of his work to great critical acclaim.
