New album in the making, scheduled for release April 2017
Early in 1994 KREIDLER was founded by Thomas Klein, Andreas Reihse, Detlef Weinrich, and Stefan Schneider who was to leave KREIDLER in 1998; his place was taken by Alexander Paulick (of Coloma and Narrow Bridges).
Kreidler’s album Riva was released 1994 on a small Parisian label. This was to be the first of 23 releases to date, with the latest DEN in 2012.
Among the artists to have been remixed by KREIDLER are Einstürzende Neubauten, Depeche Mode, Faust, or Eurythmics. Their musical collaborations include Klaus Dinger (NEU!, la Düsseldorf), Add (N) to X, Pyrolator, Young Gods, Momus, Leo Garcia, Theo Altenberg, or Chicks on Speed.
KREIDLER have played over 400 shows throughout Europe, Asia and America. In techno clubs, in rock venues, in concert halls. At festivals like Sonar, SXSW, Nrmal, Roskilde or Cervantino. In museums and art galleries: at the Van Dyck retrospective in Antwerp, for Rosemarie Trockel, Mike Kelley, or in New York’s Museum of Modern Art and in the Centre Pompidou Paris for the openings of Andreas Gursky.
KREIDLER contributed to artists books such as Deutsch -Young German Photography, Toit du Monde, Romantik. Their videos are screened at festivals e.g. in Barcelona, Valencia, Baden-Baden, and Munich. Au-Pair, La Casa, and Moth Race were awarded at Internationale Kurzfilmtage Oberhausen.
KREIDLER music is used in films, plays and in the modern-dance – e.g. in Pina Bausch’s Ten Chi, it has graced the catwalks of Chanel, Lacoste, or Giles Deacon.
KREIDLER composed the soundtracks for Alexandra Sell’s acclaimed movie Durchfahrtsland / Remote Area / Terre de Transit, for Tommy Pallotta’s / Femke Wolting’s The Last Hijack and the accompanying interactive website (awarded with an EMMY in 2016), and for Heinz Emigholz’The Airstrip. Emigholz accompanied KREIDLER’s album DEN in 2012/13 with 7 films; his forthcoming movie 2+2=22 (The Alphabet) centres around KREIDLER’s recording session in Tbilisi for their 2015 album ABC, out on Bureau b.
