RISIKO 1 Zine
RISIKO aims to introduce often isolated music circles to an audience outside of Germany whilst creating an environment in which musicians can express themselves freely.
The first issue explores the theme of the “WALL”.
With interviews from 30, generation spanning musicians based in Germany, the magazine raises the question, “Do you think there is a “WALL” in the current German music scene?”
The feature includes lead musical figures such as Damo Suzuki (CAN), Michael Rother (NEU!), Robert Görl (DAF), Alexander Hacke (Einstürzende Neubauten), as well as more contemporary acts like Isolation Berlin, Fenster, International Music, and many more.
