How can you possibly combine a studio production with a live­music show? The answer is quite simple: Bring the studio on stage! Four laptops, equipped with Ableton Live, twenty various instruments and of course around two hundred meters of tangled cables. Each single tone is played at least once live on stage and together with the variety of instruments that are looped and enriched with effects, the typical sound of Drahthaus arises: subtle­complex but still intuitive. It has all started in 2015 as a techno project, but combines by now many influences and vibes from different genres, such as jazz, ambient trance or dub. Electronics and acoustics go naturally hand in hand ­ digital and analog are no longer opposites, but partners. Drahthaus tries to expand their possibilities by overcoming the standards of a conventional band formation. Therefore, a collective of sound technicians, visual artists and creative heads behind Drahthaus strengthen them to overcome barriers and find new rooms for exceptional artistic experiments.
