Deichkind: Sounds of Elbphilharmonie

For Fynn Kliemann’s online series »Sounds Of«, the Hamburg band has knocked up a new song – featuring sounds from the Elbphilharmonie.

Deichkind pays the Elbphilharmonie a visit! The Hamburg electro-hip-hoppers climb up from the parking garage to the roof with a recording device, collecting sounds from all over the building, and put them together spontaneously to create a new song. Presenter Nisse Ingwersen contributes, with personal stories and a look at the production process as well as cool beats.

»We walked in here and didn’t really know what we were supposed to do – that’s how Deichkind songs are created. It’s a mixture of chaos and structure.«

Philipp Grütering (Deichkind)

Sounds Of :The series

»Sounds Of« – thus the title of the format created by YouTuber and entrepreneur Fynn Kliemann, who invites musicians to record sounds at a location of their choosing and then use them to produce a song of their own. Among the artists who have participated so far are the singer Catt, rapper Bausa and singer-songwriter Clueso.
