Last Day Deaf is proud to be the Media Partner for the live appearance of Hackedepicciotto, the abstract, experimental/art-rock of living legends Alexander Hacke (bassist & founding member of “need-no-introduction” Einstürzende Neubauten) & Danielle de Picciotto (Space Cowboys, Ocean Club & Love Parade co-founder). Their live performances could be characterized as “mild/intense” based on the atmospheric vibes, spoken word, Alexander’s unique throat singing and the nihilistic sound.
The duo is visiting Athens and Death Disco on October 15th to show us that only two people with their love and talent are enough to fill the space with such rich emotions.
Hackedepicciotto are Alexander Hacke and Danielle de Picciotto, two artists who would not be an exaggeration to call them legends of underground music.
Danielle de Picciotto moved to Berlin in 1987 to become the singer of the band “Space Cowboys”. She is the co-founder of Love Parade, musician with Crime & The City Solution, co-founder of Ocean Club with Gudrun Gut and since 2001 the traveling companion in Alexander’s adventures.
Alexander Hacke is a founding member and bass player of Einsturzende Neubauten and with countless collaborations with bands such as Tiger Lillies, Christians F., Crime and the City Solution, Die Haut, Miranda Sex Garden, etc. is considered one of the most emblematic forms of the Berlin electronic and industrial scene from the 80’s until today.
The artistic couple turned real-life couple, married since 2006, have creatively interacted over the past 20 years with countless international music acts, in addition to releasing their own compositions.
Their live shows are, to put it mildly, intense. When Danielle isn’t playing violin and piano, she experiments with unusual instruments like the Hurdy Gurdy. Alexander is the master of bass, guitar and drums. Together they create a beautiful, existential, acoustic landscape that simultaneously roars and vibrates.
Their new sixth album in the series ‘The Silver Threshold’ released by Mute is their most ‘symphonic’ album and reflects the endless movement of places, landscapes and environments the pair experience on their nomadic travels. They slide into genres that include drone, industrial, experimental, spoken word and soundscapes. A strangely fragile beauty runs through the work, in which fear and anger but also helplessness form behind throbbing electronics and menacing riffs.
