axel haller (*1969) is a berlin based musician, who works mainly in the fields of improvised and experimental music. as a bass player he is exploring the sonic potential of the electric bass and has developed a very individual approach towards his instrument, including a unique bowing technique and working with several kinds of preparations and feedback drones.

he also incorporates found objects in his playing, usually without amplifying them, working with their own sounds, amplified only by the room itself. these objects might be made of wood, metal, plastic, glass and especially paper or cardboard, varying in size and structure.

current projects include inien (with johannes tröndle - cello), trio vopá (with roland spieth - trumpet & cornelius veit - guitar), attacca (with matthias müller - trombone & dave bennett - guitar) as well as the label schraum.
