Minami Deutsch + Sonic Jesus + Wisp
UT Connewitz 24 April

International bands and local visual artists join together to give you a total sensory experience at UT Connewitz on 24 April. Get ready for Minami Deutsch and Sonic Jesus with Wisp on visuals.

The emergence of Krautrock saw one of the most defining moments in shaping the musical identity of post war Germany. Alienated by a generation of obedient, complacent parents and a virtually non-existent national music scene, which was oversaturated by waves of imports from America, a small number of visionaries started to experiment with monotone drum beats and synthesizers. This gave birth to bands like Kraftwerk, Neu!, CAN and Amon Düül. Many of the albums they produced were recorded in a make-shift studio set up in the middle of nowhere by the now legendary record producer Conny Plank. This was very edgy stuff and influenced music scenes all over the world.

That inspiration has not stopped, and the next generation has taken it to a whole new level. Ironically, this includes going back to the States, and in time to include jazz, psychedelic and post punk. As Minami Deutsch have developed, they have become more playful and experimental. The result is a complex and spellbinding sonic adventure. This, contrasted by gusts of psychedelic post-punk delivered by Sonic Jesus, will make for one of the best concerts you’ll find in Leipzig this year.

Seriously, between the music, the visuals and the fab venue…
