**k (pronounced 2 star K) was founded in 2005 by London/Paris native Mark Wagner during his time living in various Brooklyn warehouse spaces.

Born in 1957, Reed came to music by way of the visual arts. He had originally studied painting and creative design, but after being inspired in the mid-70's by early albums of groups such as Kraftwerk, Tangerine Dream and Klaus Schulze, he soon discovered a natural link between abstract art and abstract music.
