With his first solo project, Sascha Bachmann (aka "HAND") combines tape loops and moving images to create contrast with the fast, loud world we live in, forging space for emotions, self-reflection, tranquility and excitement.
“HAND, aka Sascha Bachmann, is a musician from Berlin who loves creating experimental sounds and dance beats. When Bachmann was a kid in the '80s, he found his father’s Tesla tape machine in the basement. He started listening to music with his friends and became passionate about it; the foundation stone was laid. It is in part because of these early experiences that he has been working in his own analog recording studio for the last 10 years.
As a drummer, Bachmann is continuously collaborating with different bands and projects such as ‘Sirius Mo’ & ‘Jan Driver’ while always trying to explore his own vision and ideas about music. Inspired by all kinds of art, he finally started creating the concept for his first solo album.
With his "DEBUT" album he creates unique sounds, using his own heartbeat to bring them to life. Wilderness, calmness and repetition are used in combination to deepen the music. Bachmann also works in visual elements to transport listeners to another dimension, using old super-8 moives during live perfromances. He creates beautiful patterns and abstract landscapes by scratching the super-8's and using colors or chemicals. Bachmann's tape loop project has been performed live in Berlin and New York. With "DEBUT", HAND creates contrast with fast world we live in.
