[waschraum] [wasch | raum] [ˈvaʃraʊ̯m]
The word “waschraum” is a play on words. It’s translated washroom, but the word for room in german also means space in the broader sense. This denotation of space, including its idea of distance, journey, exploration, light, and time has always been a profound inspiration for the musical focus of the founders Florian Hopfinger, Holger Kastler, and Florian Reinacher. But there is more to it. The refuge in which this project was born was an actual washroom in the catacombs of an abandoned industrial complex. It seemed evident to us that waschraum is the most appropriate word to contour our common ground.
Waschraum came to live in 1998 in the Black Forest of Germany. Initially founded as an electronic music project that was longing to explore the vast spaces of synthesizer music, it has gone through several transformations over the years, from guitarre-focused tunes, hard-boiled techno beats, drum & base, to trip hop & experimental ambient tracks. Each member of waschraum has meanwhile taken a diverse route that led us to different world regions, namely Switzerland, Germany, and Taiwan. Still, we maintain a deep connection throughout the distance in electronic sounds – the one gravitational force that keeps everything together.
We present to you some of our works to document our journey and hope that it inspires others to make music, be bold about it, and most important to stay true to the music that we call tracks.
