Alex Schaub's background starts with the fascination of music and technology. After his apprentice as a tool maker in Switzerland, he worked for two years designing production machines for the Swiss Watch company Ronda SA. As he was more interested in music than into the watch industry, he studied bass guitar and piano at the Jazz Berufsschule Luzern.

At the Royal Conservatory, The Hague NL, he studied Image & Sound and obtained a BA, after which he graduated from the Institute of Sonology, also at the Royal Conservatory in The Hague, with a MA in music.
