„It was about to surpass oneself, to do unutterable things. To reinvent oneself as well as the music“, claims Alexander Hacke in an interview for the German newspaper TAZ in 2005. Hacke is a German musician, producer and composer of soundtracks. He is particularly known as a member of the band “Einstürzende Neubauten”. Besides he released solo works and played in several other bands. His music is often experimental and varies from Minimal Electro, Industrial, Indie to Country and Pop.
