Hinterlandt was founded by J Gutsch in Sydney/Australia in 2002 as an experimental music project. It relocated to Bonn/Germany in 2004. Live performances were played in places such as Sydney, Cologne, London, Rome, Hamburg, Melbourne, Lisbon, Helsinki, Berlin, Amsterdam, etc.
Music is what Hinterlandt is all about, regardless of genre and style restrictions. Be it noise rock riffs, feedback-induced dub parts, ambient sounds, electronic beats, or melancholy vocal lines in pop song arrangements, everything lives peacefully together in Hinterlandt’s trademark landscape compositions.
