Biography

Enigma are an electronic band who incorporate ambient, house and new age themes into their music. The driving force behind Enigma is Michael Cretu who, along with Sandra Cretu, David Fairstein and Frank Peterson, set up the project in 1990. Due to the way that Enigma build their tracks, they found themselves in court on more than one occasion in disputes over sampled sounds and music. This publicity undermined their early attempts to be an 'enigma'.

Enigma are an electronic band who incorporate ambient, house and new age themes into their music. The driving force behind Enigma is Michael Cretu who, along with Sandra Cretu, David Fairstein and Frank Peterson, set up the project in 1990. Due to the way that Enigma build their tracks, they found themselves in court on more than one occasion in disputes over sampled sounds and music. This publicity undermined their early attempts to be an 'enigma'.

The band had huge success with their debut album, MCMXC a.D., which was promoted by the single "Sadeness (Part 1)", an innovative mix of new age electronics and Gregorian chants. The single was a hit worldwide and the album went on to gain 60 platinum awards from different territories. The follow-up album, The Cross of Changes, was equally successful, with over six million copies sold. The releases seemed to sate the public appetite for their blend of music and they failed to capture the public's imagination in the same way with subsequent releases Enigma 3: Le Roi Est Mort, Vive Le Roi! and The Screen Behind the Mirror.

Enigma seemed to get back on track with the release of A Posteriori, in 2006, which earned them a Best New Age Album nomination at the Grammys. Always keen to embrace technology, A Posteriori was also released as a DVD featuring 'trippy' visuals.

Their music has been in demand from TV and film producers and has appeared in numerous productions, including La Femme Nikita and The Outer Limits on TV, and films such as Charlie's Angels and Single White Female.
