Blessed to a family group of East Prussian origins, Eimert was mobilized in to the German Military in Sept 1914 and miraculously were able to survive until his release in Feb 1919. Afterward, he got into Cologne Conservatory, where he examined with Hermann Abendroth, amongst others, and composed the reserve Atonale Musiklehre (1923), among the initial theoretical textbooks to cope with the main topic of atonality, though it stops lacking the dodecaphonic program presented by Arnold Schoenberg in just a couple of years of that period.

Although he sometimes contributed to magazines such as for example Melos, Eimert held a minimal profile through the battle years, working being a critic and editor for the Kölnischer Zeitung. Once the job of Germany started, Eimert was employed on because the initial German employee from the British-controlled NWDR. In 1948, Eimert started his long haul as a bunch from the Musicalisches Nachtprogramm, a favorite nighttime present with which he was linked until 1966; for this, he created the 1948 radio theatre Kain, predicated on Lord Byron.
