The Soft Moon debuted their first record in 2010 which became an instant succes. On February 2, 2018 The Soft Moon will release the fourth Album ''Criminal''. Luis will be interviewed about his musical career, before he will perform with The Soft Moon at Grauzone festival.
Danielle de Picciotto and German composer/musician Alexander Hacke, founding member of influential German industrial band Einsturzende Neubauten and, according to band leader Blixa Bargeld, the "musical director of the band". Both of them are also members of "Crime & The City Solution"
Together they started Hackedepicciotto. Danielle specializes in unusual instruments such as the Hurdy Gurdy, the auto harp and the cemence besides playing the violin and piano; Alexander is master of the bass, guitar and drums. Together they create beautiful, existentialistic, acoustic soundscapes, which roar and vibrate simultaneously leaving their audiences shaken but overjoyed. Earlier in 2017 performed they a sold out Grauzone show in Amsterdam and they're back with a fresh released double LP ''Menetakel'' to play at Grauzone Festival. John Robb (known for The Membranes and Loud As War) will lead the conversations.
