Born 4. 23. 1956 in Graz (Austria) Autodidact since he left school in the early 70ies, he became a member in several rockbands and toured with them playing the keyboards. During the 80ies he did lots of work as a composer and music producer for small indie-labels and major companies with his own Band "Luna Set" as well as with various other artists. With the beginning of the 90ies he decided to go back to perfect independence.
Together with his wife, the painter Jacqueline Ditt, he founded "universal arts" as a concept of artist marketing. This means, they are running their own gallery and a production-studio. Expanding to visual arts, Mario Strack started creating audiovisual clips with the electronic media. His style is known as "Illustrated Music" - a combination of - "lyrical electro rock" - songs and moving pictures - that expands the artwork to a multisensual experience. Today he lives and works as a free artist in Munich (Germany).
