Performed by Pinkert alongside a bass-player and a drummer, using a range of non-conventional analogue instruments and unusual, vintage synthesizers, Dollkraut's band shows combine a wall of sound and visuals with the same experimental, lo-fi approach that marks out Pinkert’s recorded output. Think members of Portishead, and Front242 jamming with Neu! and Linear Movement, and you’re close to the Dollkraut live sound.
In the process, Dollkraut also earned a reputation for being a DJ whose lo-fi and analogue-strong sets resulted in a string of memorable DJ appearances at such iconic clubs and events as Rock En Seine in Paris, the Institut fur Die Zukunft in Leipzig, Tel Aviv’s Breakfast Club and Dekmantel Selectors festival in Tisno, Croatia.
As for Pinkert’s future plans, you’ll just have to wait and see. If his career so far has taught us anything, he’ll most likely continue confounding expectations.
