In line with its official cultural policy, Goethe Connections aims to present its longstanding contacts with avant garde music in Germany and abroad & promote high quality, forward thinking infotainment to Singapore, a perfect synergy with Nu Beats at Phuture.
Kreidler admit to appropriating their moniker, and by implication their general music making aesthetic, from an old 50cc motorcycle with "a cheap hi-tech look". Thomas Klein (drums), Andreas Reihse (push-buttoned and keyed instruments), and Detlef Weinrich (electronica) create contemporary electronic music with an experimental core but refuse to be typecast as mere studio boffins: "There's a lot of hype about electronic acts working in a scientific way", they assert, "but that's not our goal. People are happy to see us as 'that weird German band'", bemoan Kreidler, "but we never set out to be like that."
Kreidler's ambition is to create music beyond any of these contexts - music based on the most varied of influences, according to their own world's possibilities.
