Grand Jeté is a series of electronic music events at OHM club, located in the industrial complex of Kraftwerk Berlin (in the immediate vicinity of TRESOR club).
On four Thursdays from September to December 2014, Grand Jeté presents an electronic live act sharing the stage with several DJs. The participating artists come from different musical backgrounds, however all Grand Jeté events will have one thing in common: the exploration of rhythm and sound.
A thrilling listening and dance event guaranteed.
The second event features Frank Bretschneider (Raster-Noton) LIVE and Achterbahn D’Amour with a DJ set, warmed up by a DJ set of host Hanno Leichtmann himself aka the VSQ.
Frank Bretschneider is a musician, composer and video artist. His work is known for precise sound placement, complex, interwoven rhythm structures and its minimal, flowing approach. At Grand Jeté, Bretschneider will perform the audio-visual work super.trigger, his latest album for raster-noton. Described as »abstract analogue pointilism«, »ambience for spaceports« or »hypnotic echochamber pulsebeat«, Bretschneider’s subtle and detailed music is echoed by his visuals: perfect translated realizations of the qualities found in music within visual phenomena.
Achterbahn D’Amour are Johannes Paluka and Jürgen Jool Albert. In their releases Achterbahn D’Amour demonstrate a true reverence for the Roland 303 and 606. In their DJ sets this love materializes in a predilection for classic machine-made people movers.
The VSQ (i´m so blasé) is the dj moniker of Hanno Leichtmanns house alter ego The Vulva String Quartett. his sets are open minded, beyond musical styles but always somewhere between house, techno, acid and electro.
Grand Jeté is a project by Hanno Leichtmann, supported by Musicboard Berlin. Check out our Facebook page to win tickets.
