|Places + Spaces present Hinterlandt|
for Cockatoo Calling on Cockatoo Island
Performing on Sunday 17th April, as part of the Cockatoo Calling Open Day.
Music is what Hinterlandt is all about, regardless of genre and style restrictions. Be it noise rock riffs, feedback-induced dub parts, ambient sounds, electronic beats, or melancholy vocal lines in pop song arrangements, everything lives peacefully together in Hinterlandt's trademark landscape compositions.
Hinterlandt was founded by J Gutsch in Sydney/Australia in 2002 as an experimental music project. It relocated to Bonn/Germany in 2004. Hinterlandt re-relocated to Sydney/Australia in 2009.
Live performances were played in places such as Sydney, Cologne, London, Rome, Hamburg, Melbourne, Lisbon, Helsinki, Berlin, Amsterdam, etc. Locations included indie rock venues, art galleries, electronic music clubs, cafes, book shops, and psychedelic rock festivals.
Recordings have been released by a number of underground labels in various countries. After 9 solo albums, 2009 finally saw the release of an album recorded in full band mode, called "All Things Considered".
