Since the late 90's Markus's mainstay has been the Anglo-German band CENTROZOON, alongside long-term musical partner Bernhard Woestheinrich, and English singer Tim Bowness (of seminal art-rock band No-Man). The group has attracted numerous celebrity fans, including guitarist David Torn, and King Crimson drummer Pat Mastelotto, who has recently collaborated with Markus both on stage and in the studio.
