HENRY KAISER - Erforscher von Unterwasserwelten und Klangozeanen

The American music market is ticking differently than the European and especially the German one. Quite a few musical greats there find little or no attention in the Old World. Guitarist Henry Kaiser, for example, is only known in Germany to absolute connoisseurs of the niche between rock, jazz and avant-garde. He combines the best sides of Jerry Garcia, Frank Zappa and John McLaughlin.

Since the mid-1970s, the 67-year-old, who has already released more than 50 albums, seems to be constantly squatting in the studio and hatching new projects. But appearances are deceptive: if he is regarded in the music world as one of the most innovative minds of the last 40 years, scientists value him as one of the most renowned research divers. With filmmakers like Werner Herzog he is in demand as an underwater cameraman. Henry Kaiser is an all-rounder who leaves many traces behind.
