Steve founded his first band THE POLYPHONICS in 1984, after five years of piano lessons and first steps with a commodre C64 computer and some synthesizers. He was the songwriter, lead singer and sound-designer of the new wave / synthpop tunes. The band built their own Studio where they recorded, besides many other swiss bands, two own albums: The quadrophonic ''In Memory of Ganymed'' was recorded for the National Exhibition "Space Science in Switzerland" in 1986. With their second album ''Undulating Ways'', released in 1987, they had about 30 concerts all over Switzerland and became airplay on the swiss radio stations ''DRS 3'' and ''Couleur 3''.
