Stephan Micus (born January 19, 1953) is a German musician and composer, whose musical style is heavily influenced by his study of traditional instruments and musical techniques from Japan, India, South America, and other countries around the world. In many cases, he plays all of the instruments on his recordings, combining styles from different countries and using the instruments in unprecedented ways in each of his pieces. He often uses layers of a single instrument to create unusual combinations of sounds. He is also one of the only ECM Records artists whose records are not produced by Manfred Eicher.[citation needed] He often sings in a made-up language.[citation needed]
