In 2012, musicians and friends Casper Clausen (DK), Greg Haines (UK), Francesco Donadello (IT), Martyn Heyne (DE), and Peter Broderick (US) founded THE GROUP in Berlin, Germany. They realised, while each being full-time musicians making records and touring extensively, that they never actually created or played music together.
Since then, the intention of bringing together musicians, and now artists from other fields, has developed into an ever-evolving formation of diverse people, many of them renowned for their own projects, entering and exiting The Group.[vimeo 84682041 w=620&h=300]
THE GROUP is currently based around and curated by Casper Clausen (Efterklang, Liima), Greg Haines, and Francesco Donadello (record producer & engineer Modeselektor, Mouse on Mars, Efterklang etc). The Group have performed at such renowned venues as Berlin’s Volksbühne, Radial System, Schauspiel Leipzig & Roskilde Festival.
THE GROUP members in the past and present include Casper Clausen, Greg Haines, Francesco Donadello, Dustin O’Halloran, Jóhann Jóhannsson, Greg Saunier, Mads Brauer, Andre de Ridder, Martyn Heyne, Peter Broderick, Andrea Belfi, Anne Müller, Jonas Westergaard, Shasta Ellenbogen, Ayumi Paul + many more.
