Born as Pino Grzybowsky in Goettingen/Germany 1964.
He lived in Germany, France and the USA, now based in Munich/Germany.
His musical education started in 1972 with learning on an electric organ and joining
a choir for children which was also involved in appearances in different operas
like Wozzeck, Bajazzo and Sister Angelika.
He heard his first piece of electronic music (Tangerine Dream/Ricochet) in 1976,
knowing from that point on, that he wants to play with synthesizers in the future.
70ies Electronica, Glam-Rock, New Wave, the 80ies, Crossover and Funk
played then a big role in his musical growing-up.
His first appearances as keyboarder in live-bands began in 1980.
He played Korg and Moog synthesizers, a string-machine,
the Hohner D6 Clavinet and the Fender Rhodes.
Autodidactic learning of playing piano, Clavinet, keyboards and working
with analogue synthesizers resulted in releasing tapes with own compositions
of electronic music through fanzines in the early eighties.
Also many co-compositions were done with different bands
in the Frankfurt/Main area in Germany.
He bought the Atari 1024ST computer in 1987 and started to create tracks immediately.
He stopped being a keyboarder for bands in 1992 and started to work with singers
and guitar-players along with the computer under the project name "Baby Tigers".
A demo-tape was professionally produced in a studio by Frank Elmar from „Jam & Spoon
- but failed to be signed to a major record company
In 1995 he learned to deejay and his first 12“ Ep's were released on labels
like Superstition, Sony, Delirium, Pod-Communication and Elektrolux
in the Techno and Ambient field under several aliases like „T minus 20 sec.“,
„p-meson“ and „Pino.G.“ and finally Dr.Scissors.
Dr.Scissors was created as alter ego for his approach on Dub and Electro-Music.
He collected a stack of analogue gear up to mid 1997 - sold then his whole studio
to move to Mike Knapp/Xpando in Los Angeles.
Together they started to work on building up a studio around
Mike Knapp's vast collection of analogue synthesizers.
Their collaboration "Insect Jazz" scored worldwide at legendary
label Elektrolux and in Germany on the famous TV-program "Space Night".
Back in Europe was heavy touring as DJ and Live-Act under his imprint "Dr.Scissors"
plus working together with Andreas Kauffelt. Their projects Mohare, Endzeit and
Mobile Space Unit delivered releases for Elektrolux, Elecrocute Soundplates,
Aural Satisfaction Records and Hooj Choons.
Since 1998 he is travelling regularily to the Russian Federation, having played
there many many times in many different cities like Irkutsk, St.Petersburg,
Ufa, and of course in Moscow. His biggest event was playing live
in front of 8.000 people at an Open Air Festival near Ekaterinburg.
He was awarded with the title „King Of Gothic Electro“ by the fans
of his music in Ekaterinburg in 2003.
Other activities included the sound-design for the introduction of
the BMW 7-series cars to journalists during several events in 2001,
showing his capabilities to work as DJ also in a lounge- and ambient context.
He was invited to held lectures how to create music with synthesizers and computers
at the Hochschule fuer Gestaltung in Karlsruhe in 1999 and 2000.

His works in the art-context as sound-designer with the artist collective "Supreme Particles"
include their interactive media-art installation "R111" covering sound, vision, motion-tracking and the internet.
It was shown in France, Belgium, Japan and in Germany to a large audience.
Other appearances on art-festivals include art-festivals like“Profile Intermedia 8” in Bremen and “Go West” in Zuerich.
Moscow contemporary artist Kirill Preobrazhenskiy invited him to collaborate for the "Signal/Wave"
video-installation in Berlin 2006 and for the sound installation "Tram 4 Inner Voice Radio"
at Dokumenta 12 in Kassel 2007.

The alter ego "Edgar 9000" was born in early 2005, marking the 25 year anniversary
of being a composer, sound-designer and musician with around 100 appearances
on different records, CD's and even full-feature movies.
The idea is to shape an introspective approach to music
within the musical heritage of his beginnings with the means of today.

The year 2007 marks the diversification between Electro(Broken Beat)
as Dr.Scissors and Straight Beat/Ambient/Electronic sound as Edgar 9000.
