Sascha Bachmann is a musician from Berlin whose solo project, HAND, pursues an ambient-techno sound that crafts hypnotic soundscapes via tape loops and electronic beats. Bachmann started the project four years ago, when working as a professional drummer. “This is definitely an important project for me, not only because everything concerning music, video and artwork comes from my heart — I even recorded my own heartbeat, cause it fits with the ambient sounds I am creating,” he explains. “On stage I am using an 8-track reel-to-reel tape machine, as well as projections of processed super8 movies.” The five tracks on HAND’s new release, DEBUT , all showcase a different sound, exemplary of Bachmann’s eclectic reach.
