The German electronic music producer Paul Kalkbrenner will perform on Saturday, July 13, 2019, on the stage of the Home Venice Festival 2019, in Parco San Giuliano, in Mestre, part of the Metropolitan City of Venice.
His first tracks were released in 1999 on BPitch Control, the record label established by Ellen Allien in Berlin. A series of singles and two albums – Superimpose and Zeit, both in 2001, followed.
Paul’s third album – Self, released in 2004, would mark the beginning of a new era. His most musical and mature album to date, offered a first glimpse of what was yet to come. The track Gebrünn Gebrünn, released one year later, became a crossover hit and cemented Paul’s status as an electronic music producer.
In 2006, the German director Hannes Stöhr decided to get in contact with Kalkbrenner. His idea was to produce a film about a DJ, and Paul would compose the soundtrack. Later, the two agreed that Paul would also have the lead role in the film, entitled Berlin Calling. The soundtrack contained a song – Sky and Sand, which later sold over 200,000 copies, went platinum, and became his most known single to date.
