A New Take On Techno

Where Berlin - - ENTERTAINMENT -

With its grand 1820s ar­chi­tec­ture and sump­tu­ous neo­clas­si­cal in­te­rior, the Konz­erthaus on Gen­dar­men­markt (p. 49) is the kind of venue where you’d ex­pect to hear the likes of Mozart, not any­thing from the con­tem­po­rary world of techno. But on 9 March, the Konz­erthaus will host a cool and very cre­ative con­cert from Brandt Brauer Frick

En­sem­ble, a ground­break­ing Ber­lin group that brings to­gether the worlds of clas­si­cal and elec­tronic mu­sic. For their shows, elec­tronic mu­si­cians Daniel Brandt, Jan Brauer, and Paul Frick take to the stage with a sup­port­ing band of clas­si­cal in­stru­men­tal­ists that in­cludes a vi­o­lin­ist, a cel­list, a tuba player, and even a harpist. Their sounds are sam­pled and mixed live into a rhyth­mic tapestry of beats that might even get peo­ple danc­ing be­neath Konz­erthaus’s pretty chan­de­liers.
