Hinterlandt was founded by J. Gutsch in Sydney/Australia in 2002 as an experimental music project. Hinterlandt relocated to Bonn/Germany in 2004. After many ensemble and solo gigs, a full-blown powertrio was formed in 2007, with F. Gebhard on bass and H. Voigt on drums. Live performances were played in places such as Sydney, Cologne, London, Rome, Hamburg, Melbourne, Lisbon, Helsinki, Berlin, Amsterdam, etc. Locations included indie rock venues, art galleries, electronic music clubs, cafes, book shops, and psychedelic rock festivals.
