About the concert

The legendary electric guitarist Caspar Brötzmann spent four years transposing his guitar performances to a Sandberg California VM4 bass guitar, so that the bass would sound like a deep electric guitar. The exercises he used to train his hands turned into songs and his ascetic solo sessions grew to become a new band, Broken Spirit xx, his first since the cult band Caspar Brötzmann Massaker. However, the spirit of the music sounds anything but broken – more like the apocalyptic Hendrix sound of the 20th century. Broken Spirit xx will be making their first public appearance at Ruhrtriennale 2022.
