Alexander Hacke and Danielle de Picciotto are legends of their own making: Danielle de Picciotto moved to Berlin in 1987, to become the lead singer of the band „Space Cowboys“, the co-initiator of the Love Parade, and a collaborator of the Ocean Club with Gudrun Gut. Alexander Hacke is founding member and bass player of Einstürzende Neubauten. The artist couple has creatively interacted with countless international projects for two decades besides regularly releasing their own compositions.
Danielle specializes in unusual instruments such as the Hurdy Gurdy, the auto harp and the Cemence besides playing the violin and piano; Alexander is master of the bass, guitar and drums. Together they create beautiful, existentialistic, acoustic soundscapes, which roar and vibrate, simultaneously leaving their audiences shaken but overjoyed.
Supporting acts for Alexander Hacke And Danielle de Picciotto will be local performers Thresher and Osound.
To learn more about Danielle and Alexander’s music, you can read a recent interviewhere.
