Wagga Wagga Art Gallery is delighted to host one of Australia’s most exciting contemporary music ensembles, Hinterlandt, for a special one-off performance on Saturday 3 March.
 
Hinterlandt is a Sydney-based indie-chamber music ensemble playing original material composed by German-born Jochen Gutsch. Stylistically, the music of Hinterlandt is diverse and progressive, with a narrative and engaging quality: violins, cello, trumpet, piano and vocals weaving into each other to create a progressive musical landscape that can only be described as purely ‘beautiful’.
 
On stage and in recordings, Hinterlandt has taken on a variety of formats including many multi-instrumentalist solo sets, a phase as a psychedelic rock band, and the current acoustic chamber ensemble. Hinterlandt has performed internationally, including shows in London, Berlin, Bangkok, Melbourne, Hamburg, Jakarta, Helsinki, Kuala Lumpur, Singapore, Rome, Amsterdam, Brisbane, Lisbon, and Sydney. Hinterlandt have released twelve studio albums on DIY underground labels.
 
In 2018, Hinterlandt have already performed at museums and galleries across Australia including the Museum of Old and New Art (MONA) in Tasmania, Heide Museum of Modern Art in Melbourne, the Art Gallery of Ballarat. The band are now excited to bring their purely acoustic performance to Wagga Wagga Art Gallery, where they will perform two sets: their brand new EP Sollbruchstelle in full, and their 2017 album Ode to Doubt in full.
 
Hinterlandt will perform at Wagga Wagga Art Gallery on Saturday 3 March: doors open at 7pm for performance from 7.30pm to 9pm. This is a free event but seats are limited: please contact Wagga Wagga Art Gallery on 02 6926 9660 or gallery@wagga.nsw.gov.au.
